Department of Music

Studying in the Department of Music, at GDC Kangan is a truly different experience for the students. This is because on one hand, the students pursue their concurrent courses, while on the other hand, they also learn the traditional art forms of Indian classical music from a unique institute, which is a mixture of an age-old education system, i.e. the Guru-shishya parampara and institutionalized modern education system. The atmosphere of teaching-learning is indeed that of an extended family.

The Department of Music maintains a commitment to increasing its cooperative links with the local community of musicians and music educators, while expanding its vision of a curriculum with a strong multicultural base, reflecting an increasingly diverse student body. The Department of Music intends to seek to foster a society that values music both as part of a universal education, and as an essential expression of the human experience and spirit. Music being a performing art, emphasis is laid upon Oral Tradition within classroom teaching. Eminent experts are invited regularly to share their knowledge with the students through seminars, Workshops and lectures time to time
