The Business of Music


The Vision

  2. Trainer : Training of Trainers; Teaching of Teachers; Coaching of Coaches; Faculty Developmnet is a KEY FOCUS for us to scale, grow and meet our Vision, Mission, Objectives and Goals. We will work with every Teacher, Trainer, Coach & Faculty (where possible even non-Subscribing) in our 'myMI' programme. This can be extended beyond Bangalore especially throgh out Music International ONLINE Programme.

We will try to meet the larger Gap(s)


Money eventually flows in from the consumer. The buying of original CD's. Attending concerts and Ticket Sales. The purchase of Instruments. Music Books. Tuition to teachers. Bands, Groups & Orchestras performing at Events. Recording Sessions. Backing Audio to a range of other human activity. HOWEVER ... each penny, paisa or pie comes from the wallet of an individual - whether a musician, a music trainer, a music afficanoado or any other.

More Gap(s) There are musicians, musicians & musicians! Actually only 3 types ...
  1. Examined & Certificatied Musicians!
  2. Perhaps limited to a few on the piano, violin or concert flute. They have done examinations and can play the scales & arpeggios and the pieces that have allowed them to pass the Examination - not much else. At the other extreme they are the virtuoso performers, reaching the zenith of their instruments - playing the most difficult concertos for that instrument backed by entire orchestras of instruments. Their need more play-by-ear Instruction.
  3. The ad-lib, play-by-ear Performer!
  4. Despite the system ... they have worked their way to be able to play an instrument with raw, real and genuine talent. Their need is an ability to read music, theory, how to learn, become self-reliant, get out of their current stagnation.
  5. The cross-over REAL talented Genius of a Musician!
  6. These few have done the Certifications and also have the ability to lead a tune or accompany another they seem to be able to do anything and at will. Their need opportunites to play with others; constantly improve Theory & Practice; enjoy their music if not more money.
