How much training do I need to have before joining? 

We’ve found over the years that students with at least 3-4 years of continuous formal training in any form of Indian classical music (and who are still in training currently) are able to keep up with the pace of learning and development within the orchestra most comfortably. 

Do I need to know either Hindustani or Carnatic? 

– Formal training in either one of the Indian classical musical formats (Hindustani/Carnatic) is mandatory

We look forward to discovering the incredible talent and potential that you bring to Samyo. Good luck with your application!
