Ziggy Marley embarks on scholarship program for LAMA College Image

by Biko Kennedy

When LAMA College for Music Professionals (LAMA) - often looked upon as one of the premiere music schools in the world - joined forces with five-time Grammy winner, humanitarian, singer, songwriter, producer and Emmy winner, Ziggy Marley, it just seems like a long time coming.

This amalgamation resulted in the Ziggy Marley Artist Scholarship, which will act as an annually award to the most deserving applicant for LAMA's music degree programmes.

"It is a great honour for LAMA to offer our incoming students such a prestigious scholarship in Ziggy Marley's name," explained LAMA President Tom Aylesbury.

Marley's scholarship is added to the coveted Charles T. Aylesbury Memorial Scholarship, Al Jarreau Scholarship, as well as each department's "outstanding" performance scholarships.

On August 21st, the music college hosted Marley and Grammy-winning producer Native Wayne Jobson for its new #LetsTalkMusic series; a private, invite-only event to be hosted every quarter for students, alumni, and associates.

Aylesbury  noted that "It is fitting that Marley, joined by Jobson, [were present for] LAMA's inaugural #LetsTalkMusic series. Both are extremely successful and passionate about music, and will provide an invaluable learning experience for our students and alumni."
