My name is Neo Khanyile. I'm 31 years old and I currently live in Johannesburg. I’m currently a Content Manager at a Communications Agency. I have a Bachelor of Commerce from Rhodes University, with Economics and Management as my majors. I have also completed a certificate in Music Marketing and Management at the University of the Witwatersrand as well as a Journalism course at the Gordon Institute of Business Science.
My previous work experience includes non-profit marketing and fundraising work as well as artist and event management. I am currently looking to formally enter the music industry. I have applied and have been accepted to pursue a Master of Arts in Global Entertainment and Music Business at the Berklee College of Music in Valencia, Spain.
Having worked informally in the music industry, managing musicians and music events as a talent coordinator, I’m looking to broaden and formalise my knowledge and skill set. I have been interested in music and management in the industry for as long as I can remember, and I think I could bring a unique set of skills to the industry.
I am especially looking forward to gathering as much knowledge as possible from the course and to developing a global perspective on the industry. I am extremely grateful to have been offered the opportunity to further hone my capabilities at one of the leading music schools in the world, and I would ensure to make the most of it and to hit the ground running.
I am looking for assistance with funding for the program which begins in September. I have been awarded a partial scholarship by Berklee, and I need to raise funds for the tuition, flights, visa, accommodation and other living expenses.
The funds I am looking to raise will be for the tuition at Berklee and due as soon as possible. The tuition for the Master’s degree is $45,550 or R682,888.
I believe that a good education is one of the keys to success and I try to connect my passion for music with my desire of helping others to launch, sustain and flourish in the business of music. I have the capacity to excel in the program as well as in the music industry and will only be able to so with your support.
