The teaching is par excellence; and the course is very well structured. My teachers are highly encouraging when I have difficulties in singing and provide detailed feedback for all assessments. The Om Riyaz and the Sur Sadhana apps are very helpful for ongoing practice
The curriculum of GWM is so beautifully and age aptly designed and to top it all up, is the patience, love and effort that his teacher Aniruddha has taken to work with Dhairya and all the other children is what has made this experience and learning so beautiful. Since the time we have enrolled Dhairya for Music with you at SMA, we have seen him not only get recognised in his school, but also feel that he is developing a better learning and understanding towards a lot of other areas of self development. We can see Dhairya enjoying and looking forward to his class every week, hope he is able to work towards your expectation and gain and learn more of the sacred knowledge of music under your guidance. Our sincere thanks to Shri Shankar Mahadevan Ji for initiating a beautiful learning experience like at SMA.
Excellent teacher. Very Good at her work, patient and loving with kid, very punctual. Thanks to Shri Shankar Mahadevan. Online singing class has made my life easy. Also the quality provided is excellent. I will definitely take next course for my kid after finishing this. I appreciate his idea and efforts behind this Academy.
SMA provides an opportunity for the people who are passionate about music. The virtual classes are definitely an amazing way to learn music for people like me who live abroad where there is minimal scope to learn
My daughter really enjoyed the course and importantly it has enabled many people like us in various remote parts of the world; teach our kids some of our rich culture.
"I loved learning it through Shankar Mahadevan Academy. Teachers are really patient and courses materials are available all the time. We don't have to write everything down. I am falling in love with life itself totally because of music. This changed my approach to anything. Thank you so much for what you do. I appreciate the choices you are providing to the music lovers."
My daughter Muskaan has been learning music through Grow with Music Course at SMA for the last 2 years. She started with 103 A and is now completing 104 C. I have enrolled her for 105 A and after that plan to enrol her into the Hindustani Vocal program. In the last 2 years, I have seen Muskaan develop her knowledge in Music beautifully. The way the program has helped her in understanding the basic nuances of music and introduced elementary concepts to her is wonderful. She is now able to listen to music and identify the beats, the pitch and other dynamics of a song which for a 10 year old girl, is brilliant. Kudos to the SMA team and especially to Ms. Rohini who has taught Muskaan so beautifully in the last 2 years. It was her training and encouragement, that made Muskaan participate in SANGAM 2018 and gave her the confidence to sing in front of a large audience. Ms.Rohini has a beautiful way of explaining the song and how the beauty of the song needs to be brought out while singing. A big THANK YOU to Ms. Rohini & the Shankar Mahadevan Academy Team for helping Muskaan develop her interest in Music. The beauty of the academy is that it is not just the teacher who is doing a wonderful job, but the whole experience of being a student at the academy is very satisfying. The technology which keeps it running smooth and the wonderful wonderful support service that we get from the support team is very commendable. I truly believe that all of you are very passionate about what you do at the academy. I am very proud to be associated with the academy and actively recommend it to all my friends. All the very best to SMA and hope that all of you reach the pinnacles of success.
