‘Music is the universal language of mankind’- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The Indian Music Experience Museum (IME) is India’s first interactive music museum. Located in J.P. Nagar, Bengaluru, the IME is a non-profit initiative. The vision of the IME is to introduce youth to the diversity of Indian music and to preserve India’s rich musical heritage.

Music weaves powerful emotions, creating experiences that transport us to different worlds. It facilitates connection with others, especially where words falter, and the music becomes a medium of communication.

The students of class 6 from all three Brigade Schools were allowed to delve into a meticulously curated musical tour centred around the vibrant culture of Rajasthan. It was hosted at the IME campus in J.P. Nagar, aligning with this year’s theme, Rajasthan.

Engaging in musical activities contributes to overall well-being and skill development, especially in the formative years of childhood. These lessons give a fresh perspective and different interpretations, helping children to think.

The students began their musical journey by watching a movie on sound and music, followed by a video presentation on the Manganiyars, folk musicians from the Thar desert region.

During the tour, students were exposed to different musical genres from Rajasthan, gaining insights into the lives of renowned musical artists of the region.

A highlight of the tour was the exploration and discovery of various traditional musical instruments indigenous to Rajasthan, including the intricately crafted sarangi and numerous percussion and wind instruments.

The three pillars of music, Taal, Raan, and Shruti, were explained to the students. They learned to harmonise simple raags and taals and participated in fun quizzes and activities. Listening to music from different parts of India was a bonus.

The students enjoyed observing the different puppets that are an integral part of the rich culture of Rajasthan. They also discovered the Kaavad box, a wooden box-like structure inscribed with religious stories. A thrilling moment was when they came in contact with 108 instruments, such as the Rudra Veena, and Nagphani, aesthetically displayed. The musical journey continued to the gallery, showcasing the famous and well-known Indian musicians and their contributions to the growth of music.

The students emerged from this unique musical journey enriched, carrying an unforgettable experience that will resonate in their hearts and minds for an extended period.
