Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue. Keeping this perspective in mind, students of Vivekananda Paathshaala, were given an opportunity to attend music class on Friday ( 07April,2017). The purpose of this class was to make them understand the essence of music better and to expand and evolve their inner world. Students were taught the song

Each stanza was rehearsed repeatedly with them. Students of different age groups coordinated beautifully and were able to memorize the song too. After a session of continuous practice, students were also encouraged to sing the same song individually with confidence. They showed keen interest in the class and participated with full zeal and vigor. After all, music is the universal language of mankind and it did prove to be a platform for the students to express themselves freely and evolve as confident singers.
