Fruitful Collaboration for World - Class Music Programme


Fruitful Collaboration for World - Class Music Programme

KM Music Conservatory is a college for Indian and Western music education founded by Oscar - Winning music director A.R. Rahman in 2008. The KMMC meets international standards of music education.

The institution is all set to collaborate with the Middlesex University, U.K., to offer a full - fledged degree course.

The collaboration aims at enhancing and developing KMMC's existing one - year foundation programme and simultaneously developing a new two - year diploma programme. This will provide a progression route for students completing the KMMC foundation programme successfully.

Upon completion of the foundation course and two - year diploma programme, the students can head to Middlesex University, U.K., to complete the fourth year and get a U.K bachelor's degree.

"Middlesex University will work with KMMC to provide one - year credit transfer opportunities for KMMC diplomats on its degree in U.K.," said David Malpass of Middlesex University, in Chennai recently.

"The focus of this collaboration will be on developing curriculum for KMMC, academic structure and administration, with consultancy service provided by the Middlesex University," Mr. Malpass said.

"Middlesex University has a well - structured undergraduate music programme and enables students to specialise in any one of the following areas : composition / performance, popular music, music and arts management," said Kavitha Baliga of KMMC. At present the KMMC offers one - year foundation course in voice, violin and piano categories.

The idea of collaboration was mooted when Mr. Rahman visited the Middlesex University in July 2009. And as the academic model of that university was more suitable to his requirements, this mutual collaboration came through, said Mr. Malpass.

Francois Evans, principal lecturer, department of music, Middlesex University, said Indian music learning would be introduced at his department in future with a native Indian teacher.

"Ours is one of the largest music departments in the U.K. We focus mainly on the employability skills of our students. Internationally - renowned Allegri String Quartret and other reputed ensembles of U.K. are associated with our department and this enables our students to interact with the industry," Mr. Evans said.

The KMMC students, who successfully complete three years of study in Chennai, have to take the IELTS to be eligible to continue their fourth year at the Middlesex University and eventually get a U.K. degree.
