As you know, good musicians require good teachers - and good teachers require our support. Having an organization to advocate on behalf of music and music education, by setting professional standards and providing professional development will greatly raise the profile of music education in India.
Our goal is to be an association that redefines and moves music education in India to the forefront, fighting for resources, proper acknowledgement, and training for music educators, spreading the joy of music to children of all needs in India.
