Elixir of Music

Ever since I heard my friend strum Für Elise on the guitar decades ago, I have been hooked on to Classical Guitar.

While I dabbled with the Acoustic Guitar briefly, Classical was enchanting.

Work, travel, family were excuses that I gave myself to avoid Music.

I read about the Academy of Western Music in a daily and decided to give it a shot.

I realised later that it gave me the much needed elixir of Music.

The ambience and facilities in AWM are ideal to further interest in Music. The Academy also has a library which few other institutes have. Student performances are conducted regularly to encourage talent.

There are presentations by experts on various aspects of Music.

Importantly. one can learn at one’s own pace. The Academy has qualified teachers to guide aspirants. I’m thankful to my teacher Jonathan, who puts up with all my lack of practice patiently. He made me realise that age is no bar for an interested person and gently nudged me to take the Trinity College of Music examination. I hope to play alongside him without missing a beat, note or pause! I’m enjoying Music and look forward to my weekend classes at AWM rather than seeing it as a chore.

Some youngsters of the AWM, whom I have seen perform, are amazing.

May be I’ll say some day that I learnt Music with them in AWM.

In Mr. John Sudhakar, CEO, AWM has a humane individual who, apart from being so involved and passionate about Music, also has an innate ability to spot and nurture talent.
