The missed class will be counted and deduced from your class count. However, if you cancel 24 hour prior to the class the same will not be counted and the class can be rescheduled on the basis of tutor’s and student’s convenient time. In case of technical issues the class will be rescheduled based on both student & tutor comfort.

Will I get any certification?
Yes, we follow a strict quality syllabus that has been defined by eminent dignitaries in each domain. After completion of each level, you can appear for the exam and be awarded International Certification for Indian Music Practitioners (ICIMP) from Swarkul academy.
We also train our students to appear for other certifications such as Akhil Bharatiya Gandharv Mahavidyalay, Trinity School of London, ABRSM etc as needed.
How can I showcase my learned talent? Is there any opportunity for a live show?
We conduct a virtual talent show every year in which students can showcase their individual talent to a larger audience. We are also planning to conduct annual music functions in big cities for our students in the future.
Whether my music learning will provide any value addition in college admissions or such?
Yes, most of the colleges in the USA and other countries consider Indian arts and music as a unique skill and provide some value in promoting the international cultural aspects. So any specific skill you have developed for the course of time with proven certificates will definitely provide a value addition in write ups during your college applications. Besides, learning music or any extracurricular skills improves the overall profile for the student.
