   Seminars and Workshops
Thakur Jaidev Singh, eminent musicologist at an ITC-SRA seminar

The ITC Sangeet Research Academy, while recognising the pre-eminence and indispensability of the Guru-Shishya Parampara, realises that training without adequate backup of research and rationalisation can go astray. A significant wing of the Academic Research function is the Annual Musicological Seminar, which has provided a unique platform for joint deliberations by musicians, musicologists, researchers, teachers and students, since the 1980's. ITC-SRA's Scientific Research Department, in their effort to link tradition to scientific methodologies has been organising symposia and workshops from 1987. The objective of these workshops/symposia is to create awareness of research in various fields of music and to promote a closer relationship between these fields and science. The workshops/symposia seek to achieve this by revealing the status of knowledge in these areas by reporting important issues and highlighting unsolved problems.

Erudite musicologist, Premlata Sharma delivers a talk

Focusing on instrumental music to complement ITC-SRA's emphasis on vocal music, the Western Regional Committee has organised immensely popular workshops and seminars on the Sitar, Sarod, Sarangi, Tanpura and Tabla, in which leading instrumentalists participated. The Committee is also working on the University Grants Commission to revise the music syllabus at the University level.
