Furtados name is synonymous with music in India. Furtados School of Music (FSM) was founded in July, 2011, with a vision to make quality music education accessible to children and individuals, young and old, making the entire learning process fun-filled, joyous and memorable. Its award winning website www.furtadosonline.com provides support to teachers, musicians and students across genres and geographies.
Today, FSM spans 45 points of presence across schools and centres, imparting music education to over 25,000 students. The diverse ages of our students as young as 4 years old to septuagenarians are testimony to the ability, dedication and passion of our teachers. Their educators and instructors, the beating heart of FSM, are a diverse mix of experienced youth from across India and the globe. They are highly motivated and passionate about teaching. Apart from being qualified musicians, they are extensively trained to impart an enjoyable and exhilarating musical experience on a consistent basis.
The roster of instruments and programmes are constantly expanding and currently extend to Piano, Electronic Keyboard, Guitar, Drums, Violin and Vocal. Special emphasis is also given to Music Theory and Musical knowledge to ensure the comprehensive development of a student and eventual musician.
Integral to FSM’s success has been its uncompromising philosophy of a world-class curriculum. Courses and programmes have been specifically designed by leading educators from across the world. Emphasis has been given to include modern and effective methods of teaching using the latest techniques and technologies but not forgetting the important and essential elements of traditional music learning.
