T I G O N'S Music Digital Mentoring Programme (TMDMP)
T I G O N'S Music Digital Mentoring Programme is about SUPPORTING, GUIDING and ENABLING our Emerging Musical Performing Artists (i.e Mentee) to achieve an objective or several objectives over a period of time (approximately 1yr). .
This exciting new programme provides emerging artists with the opportunity to work with EXPERIENCED Musical Performing Artists ( i.e Mentor), who will pass on their knowledge and experience to their Mentee. Empowering them to move forward with confidence on their journey in the Music Industry.
We have created a Digital Environment that enables mentees to communicate with their assigned mentor via Phone calls, FaceTime, Skype, E-mails or through any other Digital Device. This allows them to communicate with each other at convenient and comfortable times, so the arrangement remains very flexible for both parties. Mentees are encouraged to discuss their needs and circumstances openly and in confidence with the more experienced and knowledgeable Independent Musician, Producer, DJ or other Professionals in the Music Industry that will be given to them as their Mentor. The goal is to provide emerging talents with positive professional experts to help with the mentees career development and progress in the Music Industry.
Mentors do not provide any support in the areas of Recording and Productions, these areas already have provisions for the Mentee by T I G O N Artists Development & Music Management Specialist at The Valley Community Theatre/Studio.
