The Art of Music
An introduction to music as an art

Applications are open for
Monsoon ’22


Music is the one of the most fundamental sources of self-expression and it has been a prestige of the human race up until modern day.

The Art of Music is a workshop designed to introduce you the incredibly sophisticated but utterly simple world of expression through music.

Music education is crafting itself into a monotonous set of dialogues and curriculum and it is rare to find resources that talk about music as an art, rather than a skill.

My approach with teaching music is to make you understand how music functions on a fundamental level, how it makes you feel, and to make the skills work for expression and conversation rather than being just a technical know how.

It starts with ‘You’!

Indie scene is a mush of similar sounding artists talking about the same concepts. It is too much formula bound. We do have great musicians who are genuine and original, but unfortunately in a country of 1.38 billion people, we only have a handful of such artisans.

This workshop has helped artists understand themselves better and several of them have kick started their journeys.
