NEP & FSM
Excerpts from the National Education Policy 2020
“Pedagogy must evolve to make education more experiential, holistic, integrated, inquiry-driven, discovery-oriented, learner-centered, discussion-based, flexible, and, of course, enjoyable”.
“The arts form a major medium for imparting culture. The arts - besides strengthening cultural identity, awareness, and uplifting societies - are well known to enhance cognitive and creative abilities in individuals and increase individual happiness”.
Drawbacks on not having music education in schools:
“A number of initiatives to foster languages, arts, and culture in school children have been discussed in Chapter 4, which include a greater emphasis on music, arts, and crafts throughout all levels of school . . . . a much greater flexibility in the curriculum, especially in secondary schools and in higher education, so that students can choose the ideal balance among courses for themselves to develop their own creative, artistic, cultural, and academic paths.”
“While education will play a critical role in this transformation, technology itself will play an important role in the improvement of educational processes and outcomes; thus, the relationship between technology and education at all levels is bi- directional.”
At FSM, we wholeheartedly support the government's move to take education to the next level and we are extremely happy to note that all our thoughts, planning and design are well in-sync with the NEP 2020!Our curriculum and pedagogy takes into account - experiential learning, holistic education and is very much centered around the learner. And of course, everything rides on the back of one of the most important things we believe in - making the subject extremely enjoyable for your student!
Our K12 Partners
Anisha Gaekwad -Rustomjee Cambridge International School
Rustomjee Cambridge International School has locations at Dahisar, Thane and Virar. It is regarded as one of the best schools in Mumbai for the quality of Education.Drawbacks On Not Having Music Education In Schools: Music plays a big part in the overall development of children. Any kind of music, be it singing or playing some instruments helps kids to be focused and calm. It's one of the best hobbies for a child to develop. Not having music as part of schooling is not good for the child's development as it could deprive them of so many benefits.Challenges The School May Have Faced Earlier With Music Education: With limited resources, developing a liking for music among kids is difficult. Some kids like singing, some like playing a musical instrument. Catering to all their needs becomes a challenge for school. Getting good musically educated teachers to teach is rare as music is still not treated as a good career option.How Did FSM's LearnBuddy Program Help? The LearnBuddy Program is an overall package. Kids of all ages and interests benefit from these programs. Kids who like to sing can sing, and those who like to play any musical instrument can do that as well. So there is no chance for kids to get bored. Keeping them engaged is very easy because of the interactive and fun video led teaching method. Kids always want more at the end of each lecture. That shows how interested they are in the program.
Kavita Sukhani - Seven Rivers International School
As the principal of Seven Rivers International School, I highly recommend our partnership with Furtados School of Music. We have been using their online tool, "FSM Learn Buddy" and "FSM Music is Fun" since July 2021 and it has been a huge success. The training and support provided by FSM has allowed us to provide a genuine music learning experience for our students. The music sessions are engaging and have already led to a successful music concert. We're excited to start our piano program with FSM in the next term.

What are the benefits of Music Education in schools?
Why should we be interested in your music program for schools when we already have our own music teachers and curriculum?
Will FSM provide teachers to conduct and execute the program in our schools?
I have my own music teachers at school. Can your music program still be executed in my school?
What happens if my music teacher leaves?
Is video based learning an effective medium to teach an interactive subject like music?
Is your music program recognized by any reputed / international organization?
How do we as a school keep tabs of the progress of the class?
We are a Stateboard school from a Tier 3 city, can we still opt for this program?
What instrument or vocal curriculums are offered in the Music Program?
Who will look after maintenance of the instruments or music lab in case of purchase?
Will FSM provide support for Annual Recitals and performances?
What is the difference between the 'School Executes' and 'FSM Executes' programs?
'School Executes' program - the school teacher executes the program and we provide our Software for use by your school. We will also take the responsibility of training your teacher and providing basic support throughout the year. If you don’t have a music teacher, we can also help you in hiring one.
'FSM Executes' program - our FSM teachers execute the whole program at your school. We will look after the teaching, learning outcomes being achieved, end-of-year recitals, ensemble playing etc. and you need not worry about anything other than watching your students rock at the end of the year.
Will you provide musical instruments?
Yes we can provide instruments - either on rent or your school can purchase them. We provide a Music Lab setup option (at an added fee) where we will assist and set-up the same for you. This can definitely be done depending on your requirements and availability of space.
What can I expect to see when the year is completed?
Just as is done with all the other extracurricular activities for schools, at the end of the year, your music students too will showcase their learning through an annual recital. This is where, as an ensemble, they will perform the various songs they’ve learned. This can be presented in a manner of your choice - as an annual musical show that parents and faculty can be a part of or in a more informal setting, eg. in the classroom.
What other performance opportunities are offered?
Outside the Music Program that we offer, we also organize India’s largest school-level music band competition - BandIt (once a year). Students from schools across the country participate in this event and your school will get access to this too. Your students can also participate in our various jam sessions that we organise through the year at various venues (across various cities in India).
Can our early years teachers effectively conduct the Preschool program?
Absolutely! The curriculum is designed keeping in mind the kids school music program where we give a lot of importance to the bond shared by a child (at that age) with their teacher. Thus the teacher is given ample support to execute the program which includes exhaustive training sessions, detailed lesson plans with explicit instructions and a support hub where they can reach out anytime they have doubts or queries.
