Admissions open at KM Conservatory

Admissions are open for full-time programmes at A.R. Rahman’s music school, KM Conservatory. The school offers two programmes — the Foundation Programme and the Diploma Programme.

The Foundation Programme offers a Foundation Certificate in Music that is validated by Middlesex University, London, the U.K. The course involves a one-year comprehensive training in music. The syllabus includes Western performance, Composition, Technology, Music Theory, Aural Skills, Music History, Hindustani Classical Music and Professional Musicians Skills. The programme requires very little prior musical training.

The Diploma Programme is a two-year course validated by Middlesex University. This offers the equivalent of the first two years of a U.K. Bachelors in Art Degree. It offers an international professional faculty in subjects including Performance, Composition, Music History, Music Theory, Audio Technologies and Indian Classical Traditions. On the successful completion of the Diploma Programme (Middlesex Track), students will be accepted onto the third year of the BA Music Degree at Middlesex University. This one-year extension to the programme would convert the Diploma qualification into a Bachelors Degree.

KM Conservatory is located at No. 5, Fifth Street, Dr. Subbarayan Nagar, Kodambakkam. For more information, call 4344-4786 / 90030-32786 or mail
