Sixteen  promising artistes benefited from a day workshop held by MUSIC CONNECT Ghana on Saturday, 19th October 2019 at the Accra Tourism Information Centre.
The grooming process aimed at preparing the 16 participants on how to brand their products [Music] and themselves well to be accepted in their community and beyond the borders of Ghana.
Music industry experts such as Hubert Kofi -Anti ( Ubeatz), Kofi Boachie-Ansah, Halifax Ansah Addo, Kojo Preko Dankwa and Raphael Osei Duah (Dj Xpliph) were employed to educate the sixteen young artistes in areas like Insight of Ghana Music Industry, Structures of the Industry and Music Production during the discussion and interactive section.
The 16 participants were divided into four groups to map out diverse career possibilities as they explore ways to create value with their music, connect with music employers, and build income streams.
Musicians depart with step-by-step action plans they can immediately undertake to achieve their long and short-term goals.
The CEO of Music Connect Workshop, Ms Esther Konama Gyan was delighted with the turnout.
“I and the team are overwhelmed with the turnout and how the seminar was conducted. Our seminar was a bit different from the ordinary seminars people do have. Ours was more of practical, more conversational and interactive. We had the best guests to handle issues and to speak to our participants on the day.
”We had the seminar in two sections, the first was interactive and the second was where we divided the participants into groups to discuss practical questions. In the end, we had our aims archived.
”And going forward, we are going to work with these sixteen acts for the next 6 months where we will create platforms for them to showcase their talents to the world, connect them to well-established record labels, and out them at the world market,” she said.
