The seeds of TMSB were originally planted in 2008, as The Drum School Bangalore,
which was the only school of its kind in Bangalore, at the time, to offer a practical,
experience-based education in contemporary drumming. The innovative program was developed by Milton Lance,
who established a tradition that continues at The Music School Bangalore today: instructing students with a unique blend
of creative, educational and professional talent.
With the addition of Guitar and Vocal courses, the school grew to serve an even greater variety of musicians. Located in the epicentre Bangalore City, TMSB continues to attract students from all over the country, creating a diverse community of musicians and creative professionals.
TMSB, through its vision and mission,
works to promote cross-cultural musical dialogue and exchange, especially
between contemporary and more traditional and folkloric styles of music through
its highly qualified faculty.
We believe in the power of music to transcend linguistic, economic, cultural and intellectual barriers and envision a local-to-global music community in which all people, genres, cultures, instruments and sounds are in a state of dynamic collaboration and learning.
Music education at TMSB is viewed as holistic learning experience that is important at every stage of a persons life and development. We believe in developing all-rounded students with a deep awareness and understanding of musical diversity. The Institute also works to create a body of knowledge through evidence that is able to sensitively represent the many positive effects of musical education and learning as comprehensively as possible.
