NA Domo Singing Competition judge Tim Ulacake believes experienced singers in Fiji should come together to nurture the young talents coming through various singing competitions.
Mr Ulacake, a music teacher for more than 12 years, said so much talent was coming out of singing competitions but these never get far in the music industry.
"What happens to them after the talent shows? We have so many experienced artists in Fiji who should come together and nurture these young people.
"This will do wonders in boosting the music industry in Fiji," he said.
Mr Ulacake said music and art should be developed in the school curriculum too.
"It's only in high school that music and art classes receive attention but we grow from the roots.
"Why not nurture these primary school students and have that developed further in high school?
"I believe that is one place lacking in the school curriculum.
"We saw so many raw talent in the Na Domo auditions and other singing competitions but we need to make sure we have training and development in place to ensure these talents are not wasted."
Mr Ulacake and his fellow judges Natasha Mar and fellow International Secondary School music teacher Woomi Ryou will conduct the first of two boot camps for the Na Domo competitors today.
"The two boot camps might be short but the exposure these singers will get will be great," Mr Ulacake said.
"The objective of Na Domo is to showcase raw talent and we're excited because of what we have seen at auditions. It is going to be a great semi-final and final." The boot camp begins at 10am today at International Secondary School at Laucala Beach.
