A.R Rahman’s music school “The KM Music Conservatory and Audio Media Education”



arrahman.jpg

AR Rahman, the legendary musician who turned 42 on Jan 6 2008, has decided to gift aspiring musicians an institute to learn music and music technology. It has been the Rahman?s dream to establish such an institute.

Announcing the KM Music Conservatory and KM Music Symphony Orchestra, Rahman said: “All of us, musicians, have felt the need for such training. This initiative will help aspirants move ahead faster?

The KM Music Conservatory is an attempt to recreate a world-class orchestra for the enjoyment for Indians. Currently Indian composers must go abroad to find orchestras to record. The vision of KM Music Conservatory is to eliminate this obstacle and provide an exemplary orchestra here in India.

The KM Music Conservatory and Audio Media Education will be India’s first Apple authorized training center, and it will be located at Chennai. The training center will initially function next to his studio but eventually will shift to a bigger campus on the outskirts of the city.

The conservatory faculty will include professors and musicians from both India and abroad, who will educate students in Indian and Western Classical music.

For the first batch that starts in the coming academic year (2008), the school will audition singers and students who play flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn, trumpet, trombone, violin, viola, cello, double bass, and percussion.

Courses include Western Vocal and Instrumental Performance, Indian Classical Vocal, Western and Indian Music Theory, Music Appreciation, Ear Training, Piano, Audio Engineering, an Apple certified course in Logic Pro, and a Digidesign certified course in Pro Tools.

In addition to this, students can also audition for the professional KM Music Symphony Orchestra after the completion of the programme.
