We are not affiliated to any religious institutions, as we believe very strongly in the art and power of music. To this end, we do not discriminate against colour, creed, or social standing.
Our classes are one-to-one, or in a group of two so that there is individual attention to each student. Our motto ‘ Nurturing India’s Future Musicians’ aims to do just that, with dedicated, committed and qualified teachers taking on the task to educate and inculcate the love of music and its related arts in equally dedicated and committed students!
We encourage but do not force students to appear for the London College of Music Examinations which offer a wide variety of subjects in classical, jazz, rock and pop genres which alternative boards do not. Further more, the Examinations board are in collaboration with the Registry of Guitar Tutors whose board include such greats such as Sir Paul McCartney, David Gilmour, etc, that offer a wide selection of guitar examinations. We like this board not only because of the fairness of marking, or the QCAS rating, but also for the friendliness of examiners that is of utmost importance in making the exam candidate feel at ease.
The Trust has classes in the following specialities:
Vocal (classical – Western, music theatre and pop)
MMT Choir (big choir), Madrigals, Etc. (one of India's premier chamber choirs) and Femusica (all women choir) - western classical
Founded in February 2019 by Neecia Majolly, Femusica is an all-women’s choir with the aim of performing music by only women composers. It had its successful debut on Sep 7th 2019 in Chennai. Inspired by the #MeToo movement, the choir has performed music by the mystic Hildegard von Bingen (Middle Ages) right up to compositions by Neecia Majolly herself.
This choir was personally hand picked by director Neecia Majolly through auditions, and started training since March 2011 for the purposes of performing Handel’s ‘Messiah’ that featured in our Festival of Classical Song. The choristers are from varied cultures and backgrounds who have all come together to share the love and fellowship of some of the greatest Western classical music ever written.
Formerly known as The Camerata, the choir has given several performances since, including the South Indian premiere of Carl Orff’s ever popular ‘Carmina Burana’, besides Durufle’s and Mozart’s ‘Requiem’ amongst many others, garnering admiration for its interpretation and tuning from visiting foreign artistes.
Madrigals, Etc. was founded in 1999 and has performed to rave reviews ever since. The only choir in India to perform music specifically from the Middle Ages , Renaissance and Early Baroque, this choir, directed by Neecia Majolly, has the honour of releasing the first ever Western Classical Music album in the country in 2009, ‘the renaissance begins’.
The choir has toured extensively all over India, introducing audiences to music rarely performed in India, and gathering quite a few fans in its wake!
