1. Vocal : Introduction

This is a 7 year certificate course in Vocal. We teach the carnatic vocal focussing on the perfection of grammar. One hour classes are held in the evenings on weekdays and through the day on weekends.
This course is not only about learning a carnatic vocal form but also a complete learning of a lifestyle and personality development. On successful completion of the course, students can take up degree courses in universities. They can also study advanced levels at our institution and pursue their careers as performers or teachers.

2. Age eligibility

We accept students within the age group of 7-12 years of age to join and begin any of our courses. This is done so that they would be able to complete their study by the time they are 18 years of age and are ready for college education.

4. Examinations

Annual exams are to encourage students to develop their creative talents, aestheic sense, involvement and progressive understanding of the subjects.At the end of each year, students have to take up a practical exam for all the courses. From the third year of the course, a theory exam is also conducted at the end of the year.Every final year student is expected to present a study related performance in the presence of special examiners and rasikas.Annual exams are relaxed only for students who are appearing for their Xth and XII std students.

5. Extra activities :

a) Campus Programmes: We conduct extra programmes in the campus during Navarathiri festival at which time we encourage students to perform on their own on stage. We provide a Kutcheri ambience with lighting and sounds. This is mainly to develop courage to face the audience in a similar set-up.

b) Festival Celebrations Apart from academic activities, the institution celebrates festivals such as Pongal & Navarathiri in a grand manner. The celebrations present an opportunity to the student to get accustomed to folk arts and traditional games in a hands-on manner.

c) Expert Sessions: Artists from outside are also called to perform at our institute as a special stage demonstration to highlight other minute aspects that the students have to learn. These performances by experts are done as a service to the student community. This really gives an immense insight into the field of arts in the present circumstances to the students.

d) External Programmes: Whenever a good opportunity presents itself for our students to perform outside the campus we take it up and encourage the students to do a perfect job of it.

6. Stage experience:

Our syllabus allows us to focus on creating ‘stage experiences’ for all our students throughout the year. But, the chance to perform and exhibit is given only after the student completes a certain level in the course.
