Diploma Courses 2017

POSTER CTAM DIPLOMAS 2017The Cape Town Academy of Music (CTAM) was founded by Avril Kinsey in January 2000 to cater to the needs of music education and music literacy in Cape Town. CTAM is aligned to the international exam syllabus of Trinity College London, and so offers the best in world trends and syllabi for all ages and levels.

Based on Ms Kinsey’s philosophy the Academy’s mission is to cater to the needs of the individual, offering discipline with creativity, and care for the person as a whole. Instrumental and voice lessons are one on one, while the professional level certificate courses also include small classes (maximum of 5 students per class of theory, history of music,  songwriting, entrepreneurship and business of music as well as music education and how to teach). Most lessons are once a week and are custom designed to meet the individual’s aims, needs and abilities within the requirements of the accepted levels of international graded study.

There are eight grades to music, which under normal circumstances requires between 8 – 9 years. Many of CTAM’s students due to the personalised level of instruction are able to complete the grades in a significantly reduced time. A student must have completed up to a Grade 7 level to be fully prepared for music at a tertiary University level.

Our international level Diploma Courses are designed to provide a practical, highly relevant and professional series of courses that not only offer skills for employment in the industry, and for self employment, but are musically and personally rewarding, because we care about the individual, their talent and the development of professional level skills. Bridge the gap between school music and university, or further your studies in preparation for university or a professional career.  Avril Kinsey, Director TLDM, PDM, MMus (distinction), DMus (current)
