Monday, July 01, 2013 So you think you can be the next ‘voice’ of the country, but your skills need some honing? Now’s your chance to learn music from the maestro himself. With the new Shankar Mahadevan Academy (SMA) app on Windows 8 PCs, distances don’t matter anymore and you can up your skills from the comfort of your home. This app is free and available for download from the Windows Store.


The SMA app looks and feels much better thanks to the exclusive features available on Windows 8 PC devices. With this app, you not only get free courses, but also learning material in a digital format as well as a ‘Riyaaz Recorder’ that helps gauge the progress you have made. Windows 8 users also get unique privileges such as special compositions when you get the Shankar Mahadevan Academy app on your Windows 8 device which offers at least 40 per cent additional features.

So whether you want to pursue music seriously or just learn for fun, this app has options for everyone – from courses in Carnatic and Hindustani classical music to religious chanting and Indian folk music to Bollywood songs. A highly structured curriculum provides a clear path for progression in music learning for everyone from a young student to a working professional with one 45 min online class every week for 12 weeks. Students can choose ‘adult’ or ‘kid’ batches and each batch is limited to three students with an option to upgrade to a single student batch.

Talking about the app, Shankar Mahadevan said, “I am amazed at the clarity and convenience that I just experienced using this app on a Windows 8 device. The attractive user interface and clarity of sound would make any student want to learn music. The richness of my academy's app is superb that helps students take music learning from the desk to convenience of the couch or for that matter a bench in a park. I am extremely happy that we have partnered with Microsoft in bringing this to our current and potential students.

Speaking about the partnership with SMA, Amrish Goyal, Director – Windows Business Group, Microsoft Corporation India Pvt. Ltd. said, “We are proud to partner with Shankar Mahadevan Academy to create this engaging and interactive app. Windows 8 is all about delivering unique, differentiated experiences to users and this partnership underlines our commitment to providing world-class apps on the platform. We are sure that Windows 8 users will enjoy the app and it will give wings to many dreams.
