BSc in Music Business, Musicology and Technology Honours Degree

About The Course

At CCA-Africa students learn directly from practicing professionals about everything from recording and editing techniques to network communications and basic business practices and our students cultivate aural acuity and musical knowledge that sets them apart in the field. Among subjects taken, students study music theory, mbira, recorder, piano and different guitars and music inspires our most profound and intimate feelings and expressions, and at CCA-Africa our students learn how to use the piano to share these beautiful ideas with others. When they study voice at CCA-Africa, you get more than a secure technical foundation in vocal and dramatic skills which give students a deep love and respect for the art forms that feature the singing actor. In addition to diction, style, musicianship and vocal pedagogy, our curriculum stresses the importance of the artist’s role in the community.
