Learn music at Katjazz

KATHMANDU: The second day of the Chevrolet Miles Music festival was one of double celebration. On the evening of March 22, music fans gathered with the students and teachers of Kathmandu Jazz Conservatory (KJC) to witness the wonderful musical performance staged by the faculty members of KJC. The varied genre of the concert was well received. The auditorium filled with the enthusiastic crowd cheering the performances of Jazz and Hindustani classical ensembles.

On the very day, Katjazz Records, a multi-purpose enterprise of KJC specialised in professional studio recording and producing music, marketing and promotion, recording arts and filmmaking, introduced its brand new courses of Diploma in Sound Engineering and Diploma in Filmmaking.

“We decided to introduce this course as we have always been hearing how bad the sound has been in various concerts happening in our country. The base of any music or musical show is its sound. If it is not up to mark, then the whole show is spoiled,” said Manoj KC, Director of Katjazz Records.

Seeing the interest of the young crowd in Audio Engineering and watching them spend a huge amount aboard in such courses, they came up with the course here in Nepal at affordable cost but offering the same international curriculum.

The course will be conducted by KC, Sagun Shrestha and Asim Karki. Shrestha and Karki are graduates from SAE, Thailand and SAE, Mumbai respectively. Katjazz Records also plans to invite teachers from abroad for three-month courses in between.

Miles Music festival is organised by KJC, sponsored by Chevrolet, supported by Alliance Francaise and Infinity International. The Himalayan Times and Annapurna Post are the media partners.
