Bengaluru, Karnataka: Subramaniam Academy of Performing Arts (SaPa) and Pearl Coschem’s CSR Fund impart free music education to over 800 students from NGO Schools, including textbooks as part of their outreach programme. The Academy collaborates with Parikrma Centre for Learning and Sai Gurukul for the academic year 2022 – 2023.
Students in these schools will receive music education from SaPa in Schools faculty, who are trained and provided with an in-house designed curriculum and instruments such as Xylophones, claves, shakers, tambourines, sleigh bells and handbells to teach music.
This year, the SaPa music program was started in Sai Gurukul, Parikrma Centre for Learning (Koramangala, Sahakarnagar, Nandini Layout) in July 2022 and in Parikrma Centre for Learning (Jayanagar) in August 2022. SaPa has been working with these schools in the past years.
Bindu Subramaniam, CEO and Co-Founder of SaPa said “Working with schools across all demographics is very important to us, because we truly understand the transformative power of music in children’s lives. We are grateful to see the positive impact it has on the lives of the children in the schools we work.”
At SaPa, the focus has been given to activity-based learning and the children are exposed to songs and cultures from different parts of the world. In addition to this, some classes involve making simple models of musical elements and instruments to improve a child’s understanding of the instrument.
In addition to providing music education to the students, SaPa provides employment and uplifts the status of music teachers in the community. This is a very important part of strengthening the music education system in India, where these roles, which are the basis of a country’s future, are more respected and given equal importance.
SaPa, the Subramaniam Academy of Performing Arts, was started in 2007, to be the home for great music and musicians. Our founders, legendary musicians Dr. L. Subramaniam and Kavita Krishnamurti Subramaniam have created a strong legacy of excellence in global music, which we try to take forward every day.
SaPa in Schools was founded in 2014, by musicians Bindu and Ambi. The program was designed to make learning fun and to take music education to every child. SaPa in Schools’ curriculum has been developed in-house and uses level-based learning to teach the basics of vocal music and instruments.
The curriculum keeps Indian classical music as a base and includes folk music, spiritual music and music from different cultures of the world, while also educating children on Music and the World Around Us.
Currently, the program is in more than 70 schools and reaches over 30,000 children.
