Bridging the gap between the gurukul system and university education

Global Music Festival

The Lakshminarayana Global Centre of Excellence (LGCE)

LGCE was founded by violin icon Dr. L Subramaniam and legendary Bollywood playback singer Kavita Krishnamurti Subramaniam with a vision to bring a holistic approach to music by offering both practical and theoretical education.

The courses are designed to bridge the gap between the gurukul system, (which emphasizes on practical performances) and university education (which emphasizes on theoretical approach).

LGCE is collaborating with premier institutes like Jain University (Bangalore, Karnataka) & Vishwakarma University (Pune, Maharashtra) for offering University Grants Commission (UGC) approved degrees & certificates for its courses.
