Northern School of Music is a leading music school in Kolkata for Western Vocal Classes, and is the first and perhaps the only existing music school in North Kolkata to provide authentic western vocal training, thus enabling the students to learn Western Vocal near Dumdum Station area. Staff notation is used by our Western Vocal Teachers for teaching different genres of music to the students of the western singing class. Various vocal and body techniques are taught to the western singing students so that they can produce optimum sound with minimum effort.
The courses at Northern School of Music are structured in such a way that along with learning western singing, students also get to learn Scales, Sight Reading, Improvisation, Aural Tests, Technical Studies, Composition and Music Arranging. Students are also taught Theory of Music by our Western Vocal Teacher, to help them understand the subject better. Learning Theory of Music is optional, though highly recommended.
Regular concerts and competitions are held at NSM, in which the students participate. Singing in an orchestra, ensemble or band is taught to the students for getting them prepared for the concerts. The concept of singing solo and in a group is also taught by our Western Vocal Teachers, along with providing an individual learning experience to the students. Western vocal students practice and perform with other instruments like piano, guitar, and drums.
International Examination is available from Trinity College London (TCL) and Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM). As performance is always the primary focus at NSM, certification is not compulsory. However, if someone wishes to pursue a carrier in music, then the graded examination system is highly recommended for him/her, as it opens the door to numerous opportunities.
