Indian Music: In Professional and Academic Institutions

Manjusree Chaudhuri (Author)
Synopsis This book is an attempt to document the history of teaching institutions imparting training in music. Indian music before independence was taught mainly by the Gurus to their Shishyas (teacher to student). The poineering work was done by two great scholars of Indian music Pandit Vishnu Digambar Paluskar and Pandit Vishnu Narayan Bhatkhande. It is only because of these two great stalwarts, Indian music was popularised and easily available to the masses. After independence of India there have been many institutions of music which were established and being taught either in a school or in college. In this book the author has tried to document these institutions and their contribution not only for the propagation this art but also for preservation of this age old system of Guru-Shishya-Parampara. Another dimension of this book is the compilation of the family history of different Gharanas and their contribution. In this book the author has not only covered the values of eduction during the Vedic times but also has taken up the teaching music in the medieval period to the present times but also focussed the attention of the present day teaching system in the institutions and its problem. This is an authentic collection of existing institutions in India with special reference to North Indian Music. Although it can not be denied that the value of GURU SHISHYA PARAMPARA based education system in music is still relevant to day as it existed before. Although we have spread the massage of music through institutions, we have only succeded in making them as KANSEN and not TAN SEN. It is an attempt of focus how it has become popular through these teaching institutions, but qualitatively it has not helped much but certainly helped to enlarge a number listeners in quantity.
