Swar Vigyan Program
Following an interdisciplinary approach in teaching, our school, has taken a novel step of integrating science and music through ‘Swar Vigyan’, a programme aimed at explaining the science behind various musical instruments. Swar Vigyan, held at Shakuntala Jagannath Shetty auditorium, on 20th of Dec’2017. illuminated the students of Std. 1 to Std. 4 with well-known artists explaining and demonstrating how various instruments produced sound and what effected the change in the musical notes. Tabla artist Mr. Mohan Parasnis, violinist Mrs. Anjali Singde Rao, Pakhawaj artist Mr. Babasaheb Shinde and sarod artist Mr. Sarang Kulkarni engaged the students in joyful interactive sessions. An added treat was the audio- visual journey informing about the various other aspects of the instruments. Our science teachers explained science aspect of each instrument along with slide show. The finale was an enthralling jugalbandi by all the four artists! Surely, learning Science couldn’t have been more fun! Sitarist Ruqiya Khan Deshmukh, who is an international artist, graced the occasion as the Chief Guest.
