Teaching Music and the Allied Arts:
I have had extensive experience in working with children from very diverse backgrounds across urban and rural India and overseas. All my interventions in music and the performing arts are child-centric. I train musicians and artists in classroom techniques and equip them with the tools to become educators. I also conduct singing sessions for adults, both online and in-person. Some of the institutions I have collaborated with include Ascend International School, Orchid School Pune, Global Village Project, Kabir Smarak Luniyakhedi, Rainbow Community School Asheville.
Curriculum Design, Pedagogy and Training:
I have worked with several organisations in the education space to consult with and design curriculum in music and the allied arts, often connecting it to science, learning and leadership. These engagements have included creating conceptual frameworks, building curriculum and training teachers. My multidisciplinary background with science and tech, economics, music and theatre equip me well to work across disciplines. Some organisations have included Agastya International Foundation, Enabling Leadership, Caring with Colour (A Mansi Kirloskar Initiative), V-Excel Foundation, Junoon Theatre.
I have spoken about Kabir, abhangs, Indian music and philosophy at a range of institutes across the world. These have included UC Berkeley, IIT Bombay, JLF Colorado/Houston, Jnanapravaha, UNT Denton, Mumbai University.
