Written by  Jan 18, 2018
The Vice President for the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bessa Simons, has described year 20017 as a good one for the music industry.   According to him, the reason for his statement was because we’ve got some young brilliant musicians who released beautiful songs in 2017,’’ adding, ‘’and I know this year [2018] is going to be better.’’   MUSIGA he noted organized a retreat in the bid to find ways to move the industry forward and at the retreat, we realized that, the best way was to get more young and vibrant and talented musicians to come into the music industry.   He added: ‘’and to do that, we have putting in place measures  that will make it much more inviting young musicians doing Ghanaian music. Bisa Simon indicated, MUSIGA and the creative arts industry in general, had more investments in 2017.   ‘’More people invested in the music industry,’’ he added.   He said in a bid to develop the human resource capacity of the music industry through training, MUSIGA in partnership with the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI), under the supervision of the School of Performing Arts (SPA), University of Ghana, with sponsorship from the Skills Development Fund (SDF) introduced the Music Academy.     In all some 120 participants were trained in ten subject areas, four of which are core subjects and six specializations. The modules are in Studio Specialization, Western Instrument Specialization, Traditional Instrument Specialization, Copyright and Publishing, Music Business Management, Using ICT for Career Development, Centre Stage Grooming and Vocal Techniques, Music Theory and Musicianship, Survey of Music In Ghana and Songwriting, Composition and Arrangement. The next batch of students he announced would be enrolled this year and the academy will soon start awarding degrees.   He encouraged musicians especially the young ones to appreciate MUSIGA because it is the only family for musicians.   Bessa Simons urged members not to be deceived by the negative narratives about MUSIGA because the union has achieved a lot under President Bice Osei Kuffour, aka Obour.
