GMI is India’s leading contemporary music institute offering innovative programs that enable young musicians to shape their future in the global music industry. The institute was founded in 2011 by Aditya and Tarun Balani with the mission of bringing a distinctive and modern approach to music education to India.
GMI works to promote cross-cultural musical dialogue and exchange, especially between contemporary and more traditional styles of music through its diverse international faculty. We believe in the power of music to transcend linguistic, economic, cultural and intellectual barriers and envision a local-to-global music community in which all people, genres, cultures, instruments and sounds are in a state of dynamic collaboration and learning.
Music education at GMI is viewed as a holistic learning experience. We believe in developing all-rounded students with a deep awareness and understanding of musical diversity and a strong sense of professionalism.
