Anu-Rag School of Music is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to educating children of Indian origin and Americans on both Indian Classical Music and Western Music, bringing commonality between Indian Classical Music and Western Music through “East Marries West” programs and exploring potential therapeutic values of Music for palliation of pain, reduction of anxiety and depression in cancer and in dementia patients.
Anu-Rag School of Music focuses on children ages 5-22 to set a stage for success in performing Indian Classical and Western Music either independently or in unison developing cross-cultures amongst children. Anu-Rag School of Music aims to support the musical aspirations of children including those who may not become full-fledged career musicians, but would perform at semi and professional level, promote Music and become ambassidors of Indian Classical Music in USA. The humble effort by Anu-Rag is to inculcate professional level of appreciation in building the bridge between Indian Classical Music and Western Music so that Americans correlate, appreciate and support both the Music cultures. The objective will be achieved through lecture-demonstrations, workshops in schools, performance with eminent artists from India and from USA.
