Ever wondered if you’re under- qualified? Ever had that nagging doubt that your CV isn’t rising to the top of the pile? Ever thought there must be a better way to accelerate your way up the greasy pole?

Well kids, ponder no longer. Here at Voices of East Anglia, as well as providing useful articles such as the Charlie Mingus guide to toilet training cats and in-depth analysis of great film character names we also like to do our bit with some occasional but nevertheless useful careers advice.

Our great friends at the McNally Smith College of Music in Saint Paul, Minnesota have been working their socks off day and night of late and managed to come up with the diploma course we’ve all been waiting for. Yes, you guessed right, it’s the Hip-Hop Diploma.

So, we hear you desperately asking, what does this course entail? Well, we checked with the good folk at the McNally Smith College of Music and they referred us to their website. Very good it is too. If you’d like to check it out then click on this link:

If you can’t be arsed doing that then they’ve summarised below what it’s all about (please excuse the American spelling):

What You’ll Learn

The hip-hop curriculum includes both general and hip-hop specific courses in the areas of MusicTechnology, Music Composition, Music Performance, Music Business, General Music, and Liberal Arts.

The Big Picture

The Hip-Hop Studies program spans three semesters and results in a Diploma credential. The hip-hop program culminates with a comprehensive final project and an actualized professional portfolio.

So there you have it. What’s holding you back? Now you can really impress that flaky HR manager with his limp handshake, cheap suit, greasy hair and slightly creepy demeanour. Go on – you know it makes sense.
