The conversation started with the icebreaker question asked by Mr Batra on how life has been in the past 3 months since the pandemic started.
While answering the question Mr Atul shared about the vision of the futuristic school framework that comprises school of the future and holistic 9GEMS framework worked towards minimising disruption to education.
Mr Ravjiani added that he thoroughly enjoyed video session with GIIS students during the workshop. He commended the confidence and fearlessness exhibited by the students.
He also added, “Making a career in music is one approach and falling in love with music is the other. In the last 25 years, I have seen that people who focussed only on learning music, destiny on its own drives those people to become successful. We can make sure to show the students, the right path. I am going to be taking them through my experience and through the process of how a song is composed, what should be their expression via music and how should they feel while making a song. I am going to teach them a lot of fine things that are going to improve their music.”
GIIS Shekhar School of Music is a novel initiative, one of its kind collaborations that will take the students’ interest in music to the next level. The virtual workshops conducted by Mr Ravjiani will offer individualized training and groom the students in various areas like singing, music composition, lyric writing and more.
