Maestro A.R.Rahman has formally launched the KM Music Conservatory on March 12 2008 in Chennai.

The music school which is currently situated in his studio will now shift to a 3 acre campus with a concert hall, recording studio, state-of-the-art classrooms and accommodation for students which will be full-fledged in two years time.

The KM Conservatory will concentrate on both Indian and western instrumental and vocal music technology in collaboration with Audio Media Education, an Apple authorised training centre.

Rahman says he welcomes all those musicians who want to teach at the Conservatory.

At the launch Rahman said

There are tens of thousands of musicians in India but there is no symphony orchestra with our very own musicians while even smaller countries have their own orchestra. So, the reason to start the KM Conservatory is simple. Most of the young aspiring musicians want to learn more of electronic stuff.

We want to start a course where students learn acoustic instruments as well as electronic instruments.

  • Padmabhushan Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan, one of India’s leading Hindustani classical musicians, and his son Mustafa Khan, will be teaching Hindustani classical music to the students at the KM Conservatory.
  • Dr Randy Giles will advise on the academic curriculum.
  • Others in the advisory panel are Founder of Global Rhythms ensemble Prof Srinivas Krishnan, pianist composer Pushkar, voice trainer and composer Wendy Par, and violinist Ladislav.

    it is the DNA than needs to change and it takes time, 3 years to 10 years is not a reasonable time scale for DNA to change unless some miracle occurs with some strange genetic mutation. If you look at the western world, music learning starts at a very early stage and in a very systematic way. You can see kids carrying trombones, trumpets, violins, flutes, clarinets in those coverd beautiful black boxes to school for their lessons. The standards of a casual player, most probably a collegue who is an accountant, a software engineer or a janitor at times surpasses some of the professional players we come across here. This attempt of creating music aware generation should start from early school education with emphasis to world music besides our traditional music. I strongly feel that this attempt will create more of the cut and paste programmers, trial and error based composers using samplers, loops and sequencers juggling and experimenting with libraries.
