Why people believe in us
"My daughter has been attending the academy about two years now, this has changed a lot in her life, she's now understanding more about our culture, the songs that she learned was explained in fine details, learning the meaning of the songs was very impressive. This academy is a great for all ages. The graduation is so beautiful, looking at all the kids receiving their awards and certificates is overwhelming, I would definitely recommend this school to anyone. The teacher are awesome here, very helpful and friendly, not forgetting how tidy it is"
"From 2008-2012 I attended EIMA for vocal/harmonium & violin. The exposure and knowledge of culture, value and overall a love for sound and music followed me to my adult career. I am now back again, learning sitar. EIMA has and continues to be a staple in my life. Living in NYC, we often hustle and search for time to unwind, and relax. Well, attending EIMA classes is my time to unwind, learn something new (and have fun.) Youíre never too old to start classes in something youíve always wanted to do, and Iím happy I joined back as an adult to do so."
"Namaste All! From the bottom of our hearts we want to say that Behen Diana and Bhai Matthew outstanding teachers! Behen Patricia has walked us through the process with educating us about the program and has explained it so well! She is very helpful and kind! Our twins Raveena and Ranveer attend their harmonium, and tabla class. They absolutley love Behen Diana and Bhai Matthew and excitedly look forward to attending classes weekly! The discipline, dedication morals, and structure of your program, school and teachers are amazing! We really appreciate it all! We highly recommend this music school to all!"
"My daughter started harmonium classes almost three years ago. Despite lacking a family music background, instructors at the school have been able to make her flourish. She has worked with five teachers, and has been able to transition from class to class easily, because the teachers are well versed in the classes. There is a strong sense of cultural identity as soon as you walk in the door. Their commitment to the children does not stop at training. It also follows in the form of regularly scheduled performance days allowing any shy children to divest them of any timidity in a familiar environment."
