Overview

Learning Music can make a marked difference to the development of a child’s social, cognitive and communicative skills. Exposing children to music lessons early also helps discover their innate talent and help them become better singers in the future. The Shankar Mahadevan Academy has introduced various courses specially tailored for children of different age groups. The courses are filled with fun activities and explain concepts in a manner that is easy to understand for the child. For parents, it is a great opportunity to bond with your child and enjoy the power of music. Though the courses are easy enough for older children to pursue on their own, the amount of joy you will get from participating with your child is immense.
