Our correspondent has an exclusive talk with Founder of Guitarmonk - Kapil Srivastava on ‘Music Teacher Training Program’
What this program is all about?

How you felt the need of such program in the current music scenario?
Infact we were researching to launch this program for last 3 years but it came at the right time at 2013 considering our immediate centres launch at Dehradun, Ludhiana, and Chandigarh this year.
We are facing a great scarcity of quality music teachers for last more than half decade. We started expansion of centres 5 years ago in 2007-2008 but couldn’t expand any more due to quality concern and absence/scarcity of professional, competent teachers. Every local territory and student deserves a quality treatment, which can only be possible via an organized teacher training system. We realized that it’s indispensable to appoint teachers for our students when they have gone through the stringent training and system of teaching of guitarmonk.
Many music education institutions keep no policy for their teachers and this is very dangerous for musical success, musical experience and growth of student.
What else you want to highlight about this program?
We are enjoying another benchmark and pioneer attempt of guitarmonk in specialty guitar education. This is for the 1st time in the history of India that a job oriented music program of such level and competence has launched. This program can be seen on the same lines of PGT and TGT teachers as in other academic subjects. This program will bring two musical success of life time -
1. Guitarmonk will bring affiliation and accreditations for enrolled members, help them achieve stability in the music sector.
2. Guitarmonk will also bring a predominant change in the social thinking, perception of masses, Indians towards music as a stable and career-oriented subject.
