Learn music from A.R.Rahman's school
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
January 07, 2008
His fans across the world popularly refer him to as the ‘Mozart of Madras’. This musical genius called A R Rahman celebrated his birthday yesterday, January 6th. Rahman has always wanted the music industry to be more organized, which for a long time remained largely unorganized.
A R Rahman

He, of late, insists on retaining the rights for the music he composes for his films, which he says has not been the norm all these years. This, according to the music director, is the reason most yesteryear composers are on the fringes of penury in spite of their music still garnering revenue.

Rahman has on his birthday announced another initiative worthy of applause and this time it is about nurturing local talent. In his communiqué to Behindwoods he announced that his label KM music has started the KM Music Conservatory and Audio Media Education, India's First Apple authorized training center. Located in Chennai, the center will offer a Program in Music and Music Technology. He says electronic sounds have in the last two decades played an instrumental role in revolutionizing music so much so that listeners have lost interest in live classical compositions. This, he believes, will deprive future generations from appreciating the joy of live classical music and KM Music Conservatory will play a significant role in rekindling interest in live classical music. As of now, Indian music composers have to travel abroad in search of orchestras; it is this hassle that KM Music Conservatory intends to eliminate. The conservatory faculties include both Indian as well as International professors and musicians who will educate students in Indian and Western Classical music. The school will be auditioning and accepting singers and students who play flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn, trumpet, trombone, violin, viola, cello, double bass, and percussion. Courses will 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. Scholarships will be offered to deserving students from the A.R. Rahman Foundation. Students also have the opportunity to audition for the professional KM Music Symphony Orchestra upon completion of the program.
