He is Thom Damba Jnr; the principal of the music school. He has recently scooped a distinction in exams under the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. The certification further explains the success of the Andiamo Music school and the determination the students have clutched recently mostly towards Chibuku Road to Fame competition in near future.
“I have to admit that knowledge alone was not enough but hard work and practice” discloses Damba. This achievement has propelled me to another higher qualification God willing” he continues.
He grew from Toleza church choir and his talents were structured to written music when he came at Andiamo in 2006. He shares the credit to Angelo Stafanini his music legendary and Alessandro Marchetti who sacrificed for materials like books and encouragement to face his exams.
There is much to say about Andiamo Music school. it is however, not a new thing. Its birth dates in the days of Alleluya band establishment. Without scheduled syllabuses and reserved course outlines- shapeless it was; but it offered the exact practical knowhow to the new recruits of Alleluya Band. It is noteworthy that all Alleluya Band members had to undergo the music school before appearing on stage.
