Schools, universities for music is the need of the hour, says expert

To preserve and enhance the scope for music, there is a need to establish music schools and universities, opined violinist S Mahadevappa.

After inaugurating the first anniversary of Ganayogi Panchakshareshwara Hindustani Sangeetha Vidyalaya at Veene Sheshanna Bhavan here on Sunday, he recalled the days of the Maharajas, when music was given high priority. He expressed regret over decreasing popularity of classical music among the public.

He called upon the students to learn music with dedication for a successful career.

 He advised parents not to force children into learning music just for the sake of appearing in media. He stressed on the importance of maintaining good relationship among teachers and students.

With high regards for teachers, self respect, confidence and patience one can be an expert in any art form, said Krupa Phadke, a classical dancer. She said art can become a property of achievers, provided they practice it with constant hard work and dedication.

Illusion

She said popularity in the media was an illusion, which is short-lived and only those who are continuous learners can be real achievers.

The function was presided over by Pt Indudhara Nirodi. Various classical music forms were presented by Shiva Deva, Dhushyanth H Dore, Mayur H Dore, Sunitha Hiremath and others.
