Working in conjunction with Professor Surinder Singh of the Raj Academy, the following 2 educational provisions are in place for the teaching of music at Nanak Darbar North London from September 2007.

Age 16 and over - Thames Valley University (BMus, BA).Minimum qualification requirement is that the student has achieved Grade 8 or equivalent in Music   

To age 16 - Music tuition programme of learning  Course structure is affiliated with the London College of Music and accepts students from any age to 16. Acceptance of students from Initial level to Grade 8 is by an audition process.

Course structure
The structure of the LCM course will consist of 8 semesters divided into 12 weeks for each semester.Student progress is expected to be at a rate of 1 Grade per semester.

It is proposed that there are 2 x 2 hour lessons per week totalling 4 hours per week.The lessons will include DVD presentations of individual instruments to be stored centrally on laptops so that teaching can be readily communicated to a wider audience.

The student can progress through the Grades by taking an assessment examination at the end of each semester. The examination will be assessed by LCM staff. Qualifications achieved are recognised globally. 

Student Costs

Market analysis has shown that music tuition charges average out to a rate of 20.00 per hour. The LCM course will charge students 200.00 per semester.Although initially, this cost appears to be high, the student will receive 12 weeks of 4 hours tuition per week which equates to; 16.64 per week, at a rate of 4.16 per hour.

This is far below the average price for music tuition in the UK at present. If students pay for 3 semesters there will be a cost saving of 100.00. A further additional saving of 100 is proposed for a second child.

Location for Tuition  
Tuition must take place in a suitable public location that is certified for insurance purposes, Health and Safety etc. It is proposed that the ideal location would be on the premises of Nanak Darbar North London where music classes currently take place. Therefore permission was sought from the Gurdwara Committee.

Approval by the Gurdwara committee was agreed at their meeting on 1 July 2007.
