First Look: True School of Music

  • The True School of Music
    The True School of Music begins its professional courses later this month. We took a trip to their Lower Parel campus to look around the facilities.

    After a few wrong turns in the labyrinth that is Sunmill Compound, the purple walls of the school were a welcome sight.

  • Welcome
    After the reception area, this large courtyard/cafeteria greets you as you walk into the campus. The school's efficient layout uses this area as a central point, with two floors of studios, classrooms and practice rooms lining the well-lit space.

  • And here, we practice.
    The practice rooms at TSM are large enough to fit a single student and their instrument of choice. The school has seven such rooms.

  • Ensemble jams!
    The school also has two such band practice rooms, where ensembles formed during the course can jam.

  • Where you'll find the teachers.
    This is the faculty lounge. The school's faculty have a large and comfortable place to chill in, with all the equipment they need.

  • Art!
    We spotted some Sarnath Banerjee prints scattered around the campus. Walking through the True School of Music campus, it seems almost impossible to imagine that a limited space can accommodate all of the school's resources, but the institution's efficient layout makes sure everything fits comfortably. The school is hosting free demo classes through September. More details here.
