The President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) Diana Hopeson have suggested to the Ghana Education to include Music in the curriculum at the basic level.

She says that this will help young talent to be unearthed and develop so that the country can produce more music talent in the near future.

Diana Hopeson stated that Music also help in the making students more intelligent.


The Deputy Director of the Ghana Education Service, Stephen Adu has quashed suggestion by the MUSICGA boss that Music should be a compulsory subject in Basic schools.

He says the Basic level is not a ‘talented kids’ programme neither is it a ‘apprenticeship’ class for students to train in Music and other professional options.

Stephen Adu explains that the pupils in the basic level are too young to study the subject but they can pursue it at the Senior High level.
