  4. Salim Merchant, well known Bollywood music composer.

The Courses & Curriculum

Talent banner of Indian Idol AcademyThere are 3 courses for completing the academy's learning festival as it is called. Prior to starting the courses, you go through the primary stage known as the Jaagran stage. During this phase, the very essence of you your soul is awakened to discover your vocal spirit so to say.

The 3 courses and the learning features of each are:
  1. Course 1: Basic Music Education Course
    Duration: 3 months

    Features: There are 3 sections:
  • Gyan: This section is centered on knowledge. The knowledge you gain during this learning module includes the basics of music & how to combine the technical aspects of singing with emotional modulations. You will get a good grasp of how the voice works & the correct duration for practicing. What's more, you will even gain knowledge about how to perform on a stage in terms of movement & how to dress up for such performances.
  • Kaushal: This section is centered on skills. The skills you will learn will include how to listen and how to connect with your audience. You will learn too how to develop your self-confidence and think of unique ways to present yourself during a performance.
  • Shadhana: This section is centered on practice. First and foremost during this learning module you will get to understand the correct techniques to breathe so that you are able to get the correct control over & understand the strength of your vocals. Useful tips will be given on the type of nutrition and food you should eat & what to avoid. A physical fitness regime will also be recommended. Then you will learn about how to write & compose your own lyrics and gain an understanding of the right songs to suit your own individual voice. You will also learn and practice both individually and also as part of a group.

  1. Course 2: Talent Development Course

    Duration: 6 months.

Features: Here, too, are 3 different learning modules similar to Course 1, but incorporates more advanced training, specially designed for those who are greatly inspired to develop their talents to the fullest.
  • Gyan: The knowledge you gain during this session will debunk the typical myths which surround singing. You will become more aware of the functioning of the physical parts of your throat, mouth and ear – how these all work together towards creating your voice. This awareness will further lead you to understand better breathing techniques. Finally you will gain knowledge about presenting yourself in front of the camera (which type of garments & colours are better for the camera?) & how to relax while facing it.
  • Kaushal: During this session you will be educated on how to present yourself while standing in front of a microphone on a stage. A stage performance involves a large audience so you will need to be able to get your voice to reach the last row with as much clarity as the first row of the audience. Thus you will learn about resonance, pronunciations & emotive expressions. All this will combine to make you a forceful presence on the stage, nimbly being able to not just connect but also interact with the audience. You will even get tutelage on performing when the chips are down, namely when you are suffering from a sore throat.
  • Shadhana: Not familiar with advanced scales? Not to worry. The academy will give an indepth workout of the various scales & will enhance your rhythm and harmony skills. In fact, you will discover your very own different vocal registers and understand the nuances of pitching them in the right way. Even the correct placement of the tongue & lip formation is essential to good singing.

  1. Course 3: Learning from the Legends
    On successful completion of the Talent Development Course, you will reach the best level of all: direct access to legendary people in the field of vocals & learning first-hand from them. Wow!
