EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA

Youth Evolution Bamivule(YEB) Music Academy shall consist of three major sections, that is, music performance and creation skills, music careers and business and community music facilitation and outreaches.
Music performance and creation will include training instruments like guitar, keyboard/piano, voice, music theory, audio and video production, sound engineering and many more.
Music careers and business will include training, mentoring and skilling both employed but flexible and unemployed youth in other available jobs that are related to their career of expertise in the music industry which is left untapped. In another way, by learning these these skills and dynamic awareness of the Ugandan music industry, the beneficiaries are given a great opportunity to job shadowing, internship, volunteering and employment with our partnering music businesses and labels across the country.
Community music facilitation and outreaches shall emphasize on sensitizing the remaining unemployed youths. Additionally, through these community outreaches, the trainees gain experience in the field such as marketing and promotion, publication and branding, performance and many others.

WHO BENEFITS?

Mostly youths who are interested in music entertainment will gain skills in performing and playing instruments and also gain more skills and information on how to grow their careers in music through success and gaining employment. Through career flexibility encouragement and training in new music industry careers, both employed and unemployed youths will have opportunities and exposure thus transferring their expertise to this sector. In another way, the communities will also be sensitized.

Tayebwa David Iam honored to be part of your TEAM.
however,inorder to come up with an outstanding ,meaningful and collaborative idea, visual expression of the whole approach/idea is relevant.
I therefore request you to come up with a simple sketch just to provide an imaginative part of the idea. 
Food for thought.........

Tayebwa David . This is a good idea.
however, think about the fact that hands-on skills are relevant in todays AFRICA.
In addition to the musical idea, you can come up with vocational training sessions/ideas for a more bigger impact in todays economic situation.

Thanx Lubega Joseph for the comment. Vocationalising in my idea comes in;
1. When we place these trainees in internship and job shadowing program. Job shadowing is a type of on-the-job employee job training in which a new employee or an employee desiring to become familiar with a different job, follows and observes a trained and experienced employee. Job shadowing is an effective form of job training for certain jobs.
2. Take them to community music outreach programs which will be designed monthly. This is where they will be encouraged to relate to their particular skills being provided to them in new communities through performances, social networking while they are also inspiring and encouraging other people in these communities to join.
