Trebas 40th anniversary
Trebas Institute was founded in 1979. It’s the 40th anniversary. Hooray!!!! I like the element of surprise. Whatever happen to that? Behind closed doors, I was talking to my good friends at Trebas Institute Toronto about a story I thinking of writing. During our conversation, it was brought to my attention that my good buddy Tazito Garcia was going to be the keynote speaker for the Trebas Institute Graduation 2019. So, essentially after some goofing around on social media, I let Tazito Garcia know that I got my invite and that I would be “crashing the party” I am not sure if he believed me.
So…I showed up. Pssst graduates…I was the guy filming with Taz’s camera. (shhh…but you didn’t hear that from me).
Trebas graduates will enter the music and entertainment industry
Trebas supplies the tools necessary for the graduates to enter the music and entertainment industry. The courses available at Trebas include Audio Engineering & Production/DJ Arts, Entertainment Management, Event & Venue Management, and Film & Television Production & Post-Production. Today, the Institute is recognized by the music and film industry for its excellence and commitment. The proof is in their graduates who now work for important entertainment companies, studios, and eminent artists. Some of their graduates are now artists themselves and travel the world while making their dreams come true.
Why go to Trebas Toronto? Good question. Here are some notes I jotted from the director and a few instructors.
Your opportunities are endless, whether you dream of a career in audio engineering, film making, working in the entertainment business or managing events and venues. All it takes is dedication and enthusiasm from you and you’ll be on your way to making your studies at Trebas Institute a pleasurable and rewarding experience.
