About Us

Rhapsody Music Education is an initiative to take music to children through an integrated approach within and outside the school curriculum. Our methodology helps a child become a better learner at school across disciplines using music as a tool. It places tremendous emphasis on musical intelligence and a scientific approach to music education towards a child’s holistic growth and development.

Rhapsody children get exposed to multiple genres of music in multimodal learning styles thanks to our specialized trainers and critically acclaimed syllabus. With a mission of staying true to the spirit of “Education Through Music”, we currently reach nearly 4,00,000 children through our various initiatives in South India.

Music can help make a child more aware, express himself more clearly and help him in numerous ways in making sense of the world. Music is interdisciplinary by design, and fosters a multilayered approach to perceiving, understanding and functioning.
