It gives me immense pleasure and an honor to write few lines about our music school. As a student of Vidwan Sri J S Shreekanta Bhat since my childhood, it reminds me of dedication, discipline and the awareness towards music, this institute inculcates in us. From the voice culture ""Akara classes"" to the ""Devaranama Classes"", I find it innovative of this school to include many of such student orientation workshops in their syllabi to develop skilled musicians.
SASM was established in the year 2007 by Vidwan Sri J S Shreekanta Bhat. It has two branches, one in Bengaluru and the other in Thumkur. The institute now trains numerous students in different courses. We have students of all age groups, from kids of age 6 years to elders of age 80 years. Like our guru suggests - Music is not bound to age or time, its to do with the willingness to learn.
Our Guru, Vidwan Sri J S Shreekanta Bhat is the heart and soul of this institution. He is the disciple of Vidwan Sri Shringeri H S Nagaraj. When in action, it seems like he is the one man army. His youthfulness and enthusiasm is the best source of inspiration to one and all. When he starts singing, it feels eternal and sanctifies every aspect of manodharma (creativity). He has been teaching music since 20 years. And his awards and achievements speaks for itself.
Since 2002, our school has been conducting Devaranama workshops every year for women to venerate womanhood. These classes begin sometime in December and it concludes with all the ladies performing the learnt devaranamas at the Shree Purandaradasa and Shree Thyagaraja swamy Aaradhana Mahotsava conducted by the school. Over the years, innumerable ladies have learnt over 100 devaranamas. On request, the workshops are also conducted for men in the recent years.
Our school also conducts Thyagaraja's Ghanaraga Pancharatna Kriti workshops and Purandaradasa's Navaratnamalika workshops for senior students every year. All the students participated get an opportunity to sing the same during the annual ""Purandaradasa and Thyagarajaswamy Aaradhana Mahotsava"". Along with this, ""Muttuswamy Deekshitar's Nottuswara and Kriti Workshop"" is also conduct and the students perform the same in ""Muttuswamy Deekshitara Aaradhana Utsava"".
Students have also participated in infinite music competitions and have won awards. Our Guru has taken keen interest in getting us prepared for competitions and we have seen his efforts pay off.
I take pride to mention that all the students get equal prospect to foster their interest. It is also our master's forethought. And for this, We feel blessed.
