AR Rahman classic (CNNIBN): KM Music Conservatory

By June 5, 2010 No Comments

After 15 years of reigning over music charts musician AR Rahman is composing opportunities for young musicians. Rahman is setting up a music conservatory called the KM Music Conservatory near his studio in Kodambakkam, Chennai, to nurture talented musicians. The KM Music Conservatory will train aspiring musicians in all genres—vocal, instrumental, classical or fusion—and make them excellent enough to perform with any orchestra internationally. The musicians will also perform in the KM Symphony Orchestra that the maestro is putting together. Rahman hopes his efforts bring back what’s missing in contemporary Indian music. “I reckon the dynamics are not there. Everything is on the face and loud and I reckon it needs to be a small soft and moderate. That can come only when you have an orchestral music training,” says Rahman.
