Dr. Len ‘Boogsie’ Sharpe Academy Visits MITTCO

As part of their continuous development as musicians, students and parents of Dr. Len ‘Boogsie’ Sharpe Academy visited Musical Instruments of Trinidad and Tobago Company Limited (MITTCO) on Saturday October 8, 2022. At MITTCO, they were treated to an informative tour of the steelpan manufacturing facility by Director of Business Development, Akua Leith. During the visit, MITTCO’s hallways were filled with much laughter and excitement but more so, a series of in-depth questions by the students, who were extremely fascinated with the manufacturing process and the use of technology to enhance quality and efficiency at the factory. At the end of the morning’s activity, all were convinced that the future looks bright for steelpan manufacturing in Trinidad and Tobago.
