Pre-School

You must have seen a mother calm a baby by singing a song or playing music on a toy xylophone or a piano. That’s the effect music has on everyone and especially children. There are numerous studies which prove time and again that introduction of music from a very early age in a child’s life will enhance and accelerate brain and cognitive development of a child. read more

K-12

Learning music at an early age helps develop language and reasoning skills in children. It promotes craftsmanship and students learn with an urge to create good work instead of mediocrity. Eventually this desire percolates down to other aspects of learning too. An enjoyable and creative subject like music keeps the children interested and engaged in school which helps towards their overall engagement. We offer a holistic music education to K-12 students through an internationally acclaimed & structured music curriculum.

Our Course Curriculum includes:

  • Instrument Specialisation (which includes piano, guitar, keyboards, drums, violin & recorder)
  • Vocals (using the Kodaly method
  • Theory of Music
  • History of Music
