Here at Balion Music we have designed “The Project” titled The Balion Music School Of Reggae in an effort to create a music school that uplifts Jamaican artists and anyone else who may be interested. We will be focusing on various areas of the artists’ needs for growth and development by providing free training in the areas of song writing, artistic expression, i.e.(sound engineering, stage performance training, music writing and reading, stress management, music video and more) as well as music business transactions (contracts, legalities on royalties, intellectual property, etc).
The school is undoubtedly needed, as the impact of our musical culture is universally tremendous yet there are still so many of us with the potential who are not reaping the benefits of our talents in the Reggae music industry. We know that it is not due to one factor alone as research goes to show that on each side on the fence there are weaknesses and strengths. A lot of artistes did not make it in the music business due to destiny, as some would say, but also due to lack of proper development of their talents and career attributes.
Balion Music School of Reggae aims to erase the bad reputation of Kingston by holding regular events, which would in turn encourage the growth of tourism in the capital. Jamaica is renowned for its Reggae music, so we need your support to help ignite the passion of our people in which will bring us together in unity.
The Project will be funded in part by a series of festivals entitled - REGGAE LOVE ALIVE. This music festival will be held quarterly every year, continuing from the first one slated until we achieve our goals and reach the completion of our mission. A Trust Fund account will be created and managed by a team of individuals delegated by The Project to manage the actions and activities of the school. It is our responsibility to do as much we can for each other as a nation and so we call upon you, as we are seeking your support to this visionary move to up-bring our brothers and sisters in the right musical way.
We are seeking your endorsement/sponsors/contributions. Please contact Rupert Davidson if you are interested in taking part in the mission to keep reggae music alive.
