Zimbabwe College of Music Programmes

As our first stop in search of music programmes, we paid a visit to the Zimbabwe College of Music. They gave us a list of their programmes and one or two videos to  show their students in action. I do have to say that these guys are doing a great job! I don't remember school being that fun for me, you can check out  the three videos we have uploaded to our youtube channel:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQZb4zXGE1DBoW2NeSgCEKA

That is quite a comprehensive list. At careerzim, our aim is to show that people become really successful when passion meets talent to create or find opportunities. It is unfortunate that school generally stamps out individuality by mass producing people with the same skills and focus areas. You owe it to yourself to have a different schooling experience by picking out exactly what you want, a course here, a course there to package your talents. As for parents, it goes without saying: identify and support your children's talents. If your kid is showing interest in the area of music, don't just buy them cd's, pay for them for lessons at music schools!
