Macpherson Aghah, a sound engineer, producer, composer and an alumni of the MTN-MUSON scholarship program has stated that the MUSON scholarship was a leverage to boost his career.
Mcpherson who graduated from the program in 2020, has described his experience during the program as a learning opportunity. He added that he gained an in-depth knowledge of music, which he currently applies in films, television production and music production.
The MTN-MUSON scholarship is a fully funded two-year diploma program that covers tuition, books, and transportation. The diploma course has a curriculum that covers both theory and practical training, and offers advanced training in music majors.
Speaking on the value of the scholarship program, Macpherson added that aside from gaining knowledge in music, the program added value to his craft, by giving him unique insights to solve problems and take up new challenges. He said, “I learnt the importance of time management and continuous practice. Today, I use the skills I learnt to break down my work process to achieve more efficient and effective outcomes. I have learnt to use my time wisely and improve my craft daily. For me, there is no stagnancy or middle point”
