PHILOSOPHY OF THE SCHOOL

The True School of Music aims to nurture and shape the next generation of musicians, artistes, performers, music producers, sound engineers, and music composers to feed the increasing demand for music within India's burgeoning entertainment scene. There has never been a better time to be a professional musician in India and there has never been a school quite like True School to help you achieve your goals.

True School’s core purpose is to educate aspiring musicians, music producers, sound engineers, DJ’s, music teachers and music business professionals to make music their long term sustainable career and to empower them to bring positive change, innovation and global competitiveness to the Indian music industry.

True School has a unique educational philosophy, to equip learners to achieve their personal aspirations while maintaining a clear and in-depth awareness of the professional industry and the opportunities it presents. We place you, the student at the very centre of our universe and ask “how can we get you to where you want to be?”. This is supported by a range of courses and learning and teaching approaches that instil 21st Century skills and ample opportunities for professional development.

In addition to establishing a high-quality learning environment, we have created a global network of academic, accreditation and industry partnerships to ensure that the qualifications you earn are globally recognised and the associated skill sets remain valid and relevant to the industry. Active industry engagement and real-world work opportunities play a pivotal role in True School’s learning experience through masterclasses, guest lectures, industry panels, industry networking events, performance opportunities and internships.
