What is Music Meléti?

Music Meléti is your go to place if you want to study Music and Performing Arts. Meléti is a Greek word which means “Study” and hence the name Music Meléti.

Why we happened?

In the search for music colleges for our own son we were foxed. There was so much and then there was so little and we had no one to turn to. No, single place had all the data of such schools, no one person could help us understand the process, no one to tell us how to choose one over the other, no one to tell you how to manage the finances, basically no 1 person could  guide us ahead. The regular career counsellors or coaches only brought us to a point, sometimes post a Psychometric test, that our son should study or be in the Music space. As a skill based profession or course, we needed more than just website information from hundreds of schools spread all over the world.

So what are we going to provide you with?

Music Meléti team has brought all the possible channels of learning, studying and growing in the Music and Performing Arts field under one roof. As Beethoven said “Music can change the world.”

We have a place where you can see and understand what all is available if you want to study music or performing arts  ahead and make a profession of it. We bring to you the biggest and the best Music and Performing Arts Schools/ Colleges/Conservatories and provide a platform for you to search and find what you need.

As the famous Keith Richards said “Music is a language that doesn’t speak in particular words. It speaks in emotions, and if it is in the bones, it is in the bones.”

See the music, hear the dance.” – George Balanchine and we wish you the best in your  journey ahead!
