"Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul." – Plato
Music connects us to our inner soul and brings us close to our inner self. Music is an art which is mediating as well as creative together. In today's education, seeds of creativity are most important in students' way of thinking. Music education help students to be more creative and constructive. The history of music education in India may be dated back to the ancient period when all education was imparted in Gurukuls and Ashrams of great Saints and Rishi-Munis. The modern institutionalization system in the graded, time-bound structure was ushered in by the British rulers from the mid-nineteenth century. Indian music education was brought and structured in this system at the beginning of the twentieth century. The vision of the Department of Music; Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Lucknow is firmly rooted in the belief that music is a natural artistic expression of all humanity. With this, we seek to foster a society that values music both as part of universal education and as an essential expression of the human experience and spirit. Keeping this vision in mind, the University had established the Department of Music in 2020 and is keen to start different music courses that will serve the community as a resource in the discipline of music to generate creative learning pedagogy in the field of music.
