Vision

Carnatic music is a highly organized system that is intricate and demanding, yet easy, if learned with a rational approach.  But it is also very intricate and demanding, and full of subtleties. Guidance from the right guru and a dedicated positive attitude from the student is an essential right from the beginning.  However, thousands of students do not get access to high quality gurus initially or presume that they can approach top level artists when they get to advanced levels. This is actually counterproductive as years are wasted learning things incorrectly or missing out simple but vital data points, and further time is wasted on unlearning wrong things.  The Acharyanet vision is to ensure that every student gets the best of guidance from day one, which alone can enable them to make progress in the right direction. Whether you have just started to learn music or an experienced student aspiring to go to the next level, our uniquely qualified faculty team are here to help you. 

 

Mission

  • To inculcate an awareness and passion for perfection with correctness and completeness in (South) Indian Classical Carnatic Music. 

  • Instill a sense of pride in the art form. 

  • Inspire self-enjoyment right from the first note taught.
