An Appeal

Numerous well-known scholars and stalwarts, who have made a mark in the field of literature and music have originated from here.

    With the noble intention of making music available to public and encouraged by the co-operation of kind-hearted music lovers of Shivamogga, it was decided to start a music school in this town.
