KM Music Conservatory (KMMC), A.R. Rahman’s premier music education institute, is excited to launch its own curator channel on Apple Music. The curator channel will allow KMMC's diverse musical experience to be shared globally through Apple Music.
The playlist presents some of the high points from the alumni of the institution. With music from singers like Nikhita Gandhi and Shashwat Singh and composers like Vishal Chandrasekhar and S. Ved Shankar - this playlist is the ‘KM Hall of Fame’. Other playlists will include a dynamic selection by the renowned faculty of the institution, and one by the current student body, offering two contrasting views of the evolving musical landscape. A collection from ‘The Principal’s Office’ will bring together new and old favourites composed by the musical legend A.R. Rahman himself.
Speaking on the KMMC curator channel, A.R. Rahman, Founder and Principal says, “The continuing developments in music technology and creativity allow greater accessibility to music for all. This new curator channel from my school, KM Music Conservatory, on Apple Music, provides an exciting conduit for us to engage with more people and bring our musical message to the world.”
About KM Music Conservatory:
KM Music Conservatory first opened its doors to aspiring musicians in 2008. Originally located adjacent to AM Studios in the cultural centre of the Tamil Film Industry the institution became the first of its kind within India to offer international standards of music and music technology education to all ages and abilities. The name KM has spiritual origins from the Sufi faith. Although KM is open to all religious and spiritual beliefs, the founder and directors model the ethos of the institution in the Sufi tradition.
The original dream grew and in August 2013 KM found a new home within the KM College of Music and Technology campus in Arumbakkam. This custom-designed facility brought KM Music Conservatory, The Sunshine Orchestra and KM Studio under a single roof; an artistic hub created to cultivate individual excellence, collaborative spirit, cultural exchange and creativity.
