Mr Atul Temurnikar, the Co-Founder and Chairman of Global Schools Foundation, and the versatile musicians of the Indian Film industry, Shekhar Ravjiani and Harshdeep Kaur, had a great exchange of ideas on ‘Nurturing Young Talent in Music’, during a webinar conversation organised by Hindustan Times, the leading newspaper of India.
GIIS and Shekhar Ravjiani have recently collaborated to start GIIS Shekhar Ravjiani School of Music, that will provide advanced music training to students who have got talent in music.
In the conversation, that was moderated by HT, all the three guests unanimously agreed that training in music is an important part of school education.
Mr Atul Temurnikar, said, “schools rarely focus on developing what universities are looking for. Our holistic framework and school of the future are aimed at making students all-rounders, a trait that universities are looking for in their future students.” He added, “GIIS Shekhar Ravjiani School of Music will really take the potential of music to the next level.”
