Music Education In India

Music brings out the best in you. Music is a part of everyday life for most of us, ranging from passive listening to active music-making. While a select few pursue music professionally to build highly rewarding careers, the majority simply continues to enjoy the social, cognitive, and therapeutic benefits of music.        


Nilesh Thomas, Dean,
True School Of Music,
Vijaybhoomi University


Studies have shown that individuals with consistent involvement in instrumental music demonstrate significantly higher levels of mathematics proficiency (U.S. DoE NELLS88 DB). Music education has also contributed to improved average SAT scores (Arts Education Partnership, 2011). This is further supported by studies that show improved attendance and graduation rates of 93.9% and 90.2% respectively in US schools with music programs, as compared to an average of 84.9% and 72.9% in those without music programs. Further, music plays an important role in social bonding, particularly when learners engage in group activities such as playing in a band. Sustained collaborative music learning makes learners happy and relaxed and improves their communication skills and confidence in a variety of social situations. It also leads to increased positive emotional experience while coping with social and professional pressure and fosters important traits such as tolerance and acceptance of peers from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Students from all walks of life should have the opportunity to learn music and engage in some form of meaningful music-making to help nurture their creative and prosocial skills.

  Week Gone By    

DJ Night!!!

Saarang Arora, B.Tech - AI, INSOFE

As the exam week approaches, the culture committee at Vijaybhoomi University understood that the students needed some relaxation and stress relief. To get the students to let it loose once before they start their exams, a DJ night was arranged.

The students saw the DJ night as a perfect opportunity to take a break from their hectic study schedules and let their hair down. The event was well attended, with most of the attendees also stepping on the dance floor and blazing it with their moves.

The DJ night was held in the auditorium, which was transformed into a vibrant dance floor. The DJs, students from The Trues School of Music, played a variety of music. Each DJ had their own style of music. 

The opening act by Leon featured some really Psychedelic tunes. The following act was a special one by Aditya Shah, as this was the last time he would be performing at VijayBhoomi University before graduating. He got the students dancing to his Bollywood and Hollywood fusions. 

The last set was by DPro with a surprise feature from Mameluke. He got the students hyped up for his beat heavy set and by the end, the students were left in languor.

In the end, this DJ night was a fantastic opportunity for the students to relax and enjoy themselves before the stressful exam period.

Spirit Week

Sagar Urs G, MBA, JAGSoM

The Spirit week was organised from March 20th to 25th before the exam week commenced from 27th of March. Each day had a theme which the students of Vijaybhoomi need to abide by for example: Monday was the colour day where we had to wear white attire and Tuesday was the character day where we can dress up as our favourite character.

It was done to raise the morale of the students as the exams week was approaching. 

On the day of 25th , DJ night was organised which marked the end of the spirit week where everyone danced to the tune of their favourite music.

  Readers Ask, Vijaybhoomi Answers    

What form of transportation can I use to get to a nearby market?


Shritika Dubey, Vijaybhoomi School of Law

If I had to discuss the travel assistance provided by Vijaybhoomi University to students travelling from Karjat to the university, I would say that the university collaborates with some local merchants.

Therefore, the university can supply a vehicle whenever a student wishes to leave campus, and after a period of time, they will receive assistance from other students who routinely visit the market. In addition to this, there are government buses and shuttle cars that operate at set times throughout the day.

Due to the establishment of a five-year institution, the neighbouring landowners are now receiving a strong return on their investment, increasing the frequency of cars compared to five years before.

Some students at the university have their own vehicle, therefore if we wish, we can bring any vehicles from home and park it in the space designated by the institution for car parking.
