NGO Profile :
Kalkeri Sangeet Vidyalaya (KSV) is a residential educational institution imparting informal education to financially weak and socially deprived students. It guides students to learn the art of music with a host of learned musicians and instrument players. It imparts education upto Standard X and assists students financially for their college education.

KSV provides musical and academic education to two hundred children. They sponsor their food, accommodation, health care and clothing completely. KSV’s vision is to empower disadvantaged children by giving them the opportunity to obtain qualifications in academics and music. This will enable them to find meaningful and well-paid employment which will have a positive impact upon them and their families.

Established on three acres of land a short distance from Kalkeri Village, the school consists of simple buildings made from traditional materials. More than a school, Kalkeri Sangeet Vidyalaya is a living and working ideal, where the students can blossom and realise their full potential. KSV is both traditional and modern in its educational approach at all times. Tradition is taught through the ancient disciplines of Indian Classical Music. The modern educational programme is based on the syllabus in Karnataka State, and emphasis is put on teaching English as the main language of communication. Computer studies are also important to prepare the students to meet the demands of today’s rapidly evolving world.

Students follow a music studies programme inspired by the Indian gurukul tradition where students live with the master of a discipline to acquire traditional knowledge. At KSV, the students learn vocals, harmonium, sitar, tabla, violin or bansuri.

The main values underlining the entire ethos of the school are those of justice, non-violence, equality of every form, sharing, co-operation, excellence and respect for people and one’s environment.
