To enjoy music is a wonderful experience in life. It not only relaxes but also wipes out all the dust out of your mind. To enjoy music with proper understanding is a divine experience and takes you closer to the spiritual trance. Our Hindustani classical music has got an age-old history and not only has scientific base but also a wonderful experience which helps in absorbing all the stress.

The Violin Academy has developed a wonderful music appreciation course under the guidance of Pt. Atulkumar Upadhye, who has a wide experience for last five decades. He is known as a successful Guru, a popular performing musician, an able organizer and musicologist par excellence. It will help the students to understand the overall horizon of musical world and application of music in life to make it more melodious.

When our Guruji, Pt. Atulkumar Upadhye visited a number of countries in west, he observed that every school had a well organized department of music and every child learnt something and could sing or play an instrument fairly well by the end of his schooling. Music foundation course will expose the children to the basic concepts of music and dance in a unique and enjoyable manner. The children will be provided with a book. Online lectures and concerts will be arranged periodically so that the children will learn to appreciate these forms of art. Our aim is to stimulate interest and produce thousands of knowledgeable ‘Kansens’ who can enjoy good music from live concerts. To become a good 'Kansen' is a process and cannot come in the scope of learning any faculty of music. Hopefully, a number of them will move on to become the artists of future. Our rich music should not remain a preserved of the privileged few. It should reach all in their impressionable age. It has been observed that children should develop a hobby and also become successful in their own chosen professional life. We hope that maximum possible children will enroll for this Online Music Appreciation Course of Foundation Of Music.
