Divine Music

This is a special program for those who have trained in traditional Indian music for many years under the tutelage of a guru or at a music school. The program provides an opportunity to obtain credits for this training after evaluation of previous training. Those who already have done SangeetVisharad would be required to take only three additional courses at IHU in order to be eligible for diploma from IHU. The three core courses are designed to provide practical experience in either a temple or university setting.
