About school of performing arts

In a country where music is so ingrained in its cultural ethos, it’s strange that we haven’t made it into formal education. Thankfully, someone has seen the merit of it.

The foremost management school in India and the leading music school in India. Who better to spearhead the first ever musical degree.

Think management studies. Think NMIMS. With a legacy of 36 years, NMIMS has grown to being not only one of the top-10 B-schools in India but has also emerged as a multi-disciplinary University with 6 campuses at Mumbai, Shirpur, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Indore and Navi Mumbai and 12 constituent schools that include Management, Engineering, Pharmacy, Architecture, Commerce, Business Economics, Science, Law, Aviation, Liberal Arts, Design & Distance Learning. With more than 12000 students and 513 full time faculty members, it has gone on to become India's most sought after academic institute.

If you ever owned a guitar, chances are you bought it at Furtados. Established in 1865, Furtados has influenced music making at all levels – be it the import and distribution of leading brands of musical instruments and its retail network of 21 stores across the country. Furtados School of Music (FSM) was founded in July, 2011, with a vision to make quality music education accessible to children and individuals, young and old, making the entire learning process fun-filled, joyous and memorable.

In a short span of time FSM has grown not only in number of centers and schools offering its programmes, but also in the number of instruments taught and the faculty to capably support it.

The music industry is evolving and changing fast. Today, there are multiple avenues open that allows you to pursue music as a serious career option. At the end of the three year degree course, you would have figured out which of these exciting careers are yours.
