The GIIS-Shekhar Ravjiani School of Music is the first of its kind collaboration between a global education institute and an Indian musician to launch a focused Programme to nurture and mentor upcoming talent in the field of music. Students across all 21 GIIS campuses will have access to the music school’s curriculum.
With a holistic approach towards learning, GIIS emphasises on providing an education which imbibes nine unique values in students to make them global citizens. This entails academic and non-academic pursuits of which Performing Arts is a big component. This is coupled with state-of-the-art infrastructure which provides the perfect environment for students to grow and pursue their passion for music.
The multitalented Shekhar Ravjiani will add to the benefits for students by bringing his subject matter expertise and vast industry knowledge in the field of music for over 20 years. He has been a very popular judge of 15 music reality shows such as SaReGaMaPa, Voice Kids, Indian Idol and many more - a youth icon who has always believed in working with children.
GIIS and Shekhar are closely working together to create a world-class curriculum for the music school which is currently accessible and will benefit over 15,000 students across GIIS schools worldwide. In future, some workshops on music could also be available to non-GIIS students within the GIIS campuses worldwide.
Atul Temurnikar, Co-Founder & Chairman of GIIS, said “We always strive to provide our students with a holistic educational framework by adopting the best industry practices through our well-designed personalised modules. The GIIS – Shekhar Ravjiani School of Music is taking holistic learning a step further and we are happy to provide this unique platform where students can continuously learn and become renowned artists of tomorrow.”
Sharing his thoughts on the association, India’s leading music composer-singer Shekhar Ravjiani said, “Music is not just an expression but a channel to spread joy and happiness in the world. I believe that learning is a continuous process and my thinking perfectly resonates with the philosophy of GIIS, of providing holistic education and focusing on value-based learning beyond academics. I have already started working with students from Japan, Abu Dhabi, India, Malaysia and Singapore over these last few months. Mentoring and teaching young and budding talent is my way to give back and show gratitude to everyone who believed in me and my journey.”
The GIIS - Shekhar Ravjiani School of Music is a great addition to the truly innovative curriculum of GIIS which is leveraging advanced technologies like Data Analytics to deliver an optimal experience to the students. Under Data Analytics, special software will be used to track and measure student performance in the music school, and then analyse it to help students improve their style and technique. This association further strengthens GIIS’ signature educational framework of Nine Gems™? which is aimed at fostering all-round character development in students through an integrated, holistic approach to learning.
