In addition to a research informed approach and emphasis on learning by doing, SIFM’s curricula adopt a unique ethnomusicological approach to course design. Apart from one year, part-time certificate courses, the school also conducts seminars, master classes and workshops on various aspects of creative music practice for Indian cinema. These discourses and debates elaborate scientific approaches and regional musical meanings, while emphasising identification and continual development of individual artistic voice.
