In today’s advent of technology, a performer is faced with artistic demands that go beyond the traditional role of purely performing music.  The performer should have a broad knowldege base that includes the areas of music business, music technology, composing, arranging, conducting, writing, and music production, to meet employer and industry needs. The art of performance is therefore, a challenging field of study which requires skill, resourcefulness, patience, intelligence and diligence.  In-born creative talent has to be nurtured with care and expert guidance.  A thorough understanding of musical language, styles and diverse genres together with a passion to communicate human emotion through sound is a hallmark of a successful performer.
