KM Music Conservatory (KMMC for short) is the first institution of its kind in India. We are a higher education institution and we were established in 2008 by the A.R. Rahman Foundation. Situated in brand new, state-of-the-art facilities at the heart of Chennai’s film and music industry, we offer a range of part-time and full-time courses in Hindustani and Western classical music and music technology. Under the patronage of our founder, A.R. Rahman, we offer programmes for all ages and abilities. We are located in the purpose-built campus of KM College of Music and Technology, which also houses commercial recording studios and The Sunshine Orchestra for underprivileged children.
Our renowned faculty are drawn from around the world, with specialisms in musical performance, musical theory and analysis, music history and music technology. We meet the highest standards of international education, attracting faculty and students from around the world, and we are proud to be affiliated to Middlesex University in London. Our Diploma Programme is validated as part of the BA (Hons) Music Degree course at Middlesex, which means our students have the chance to graduate from KMMC and go on to complete an internationally recognised honours degree in the UK.
"Our partnership with Middlesex University ensures that our student's qualifications are recognised worldwide…this international exposure becomes a stepping stone to their future careers, be it here in India or further afield. Beyond this, the interaction and development of course materials in association with the music department at Middlesex University means that our content is fresh and up to date."
