Subramaniam Academy Of Performing Arts came up with the idea of including music as a part of the curriculum in schools. I say not only music; every co-curricular activity should find space in the main curriculum.
#SaPaInSchools – Just imagine the idea of preparing for the Maths Test and Music Test…
Subramaniam Academy Of Performing Arts came up with the idea of including music as a part of the curriculum in schools. The academy founded by the acclaimed violinist #DrLSubramaniam and Bollywood siren #KavitaKrishnamurty came up with their latest idea where they talk about the importance of music knowledge and the benefits of including the subject in schools.
Now this is what I call an overall educational development. The way we study subjects like Maths, English, History, etc. Music, Dance, Acting, are always as some sort of co-curricular activity that happens in school.
What an absolutely delightful experience would it be if our curriculum also involves learning of arts performing arts!
What if someone wants to become a cinematographer or a musician or may be an actor?
Is our #EducationSystem teaching us the knowledge we deserve to learn in schools. I say not only music; every co-curricular activity should find space in the main curriculum.
We have sports quota but arts and performing arts never find mainstream space in the educational sphere. People shift lines after graduation to pursue their interests.
The artist life had been and is still a big struggle in the country. Parents don’t realise the talents or may be they are pragmatic. They know their child who might have a specific skill would have to hunt for a living.
If the subjects are involved in the courses then may be the education sphere has a broader aspect and might have a key role to play in building India’s future.
Music, Dance, Acting, Photography, Painting, etc. isn’t really easy. These are subjects that requires years of practise and sound knowledge on these is very essential.
Hopefully with such academies paving the way we get to see schools expanding their vision of studies. Imagine the amount of talented artists India would produce then!
