As a first step he is launching the KM Music Conservatory to ‘bridge the gap between music, technology and culture’. It is an institution for the training of musicians for professional careers in the field. The KM Music Conservatory in collaboration with Audio Media Education headed by T. Selva Kumar and the first Apple-authorised training centre in the country, opens this June and will concentrate on instrumental and vocal music both Indian and Western music and technology. Initially divided into Preparatory, Foundation and Diploma courses, there will be place for any student to learn and to perfect their skills. Students who complete the music technology course will be equipped to handle advanced studio equipment, with long-term professional prospects.

At a more advanced level of training the conservatory will be offering a Foundation Course and a Diploma course for those students with sufficient training and ability to perfect their skills. The Diploma course is a two-year programme. The KM Conservatory will function for the present at a place opposite Rahman’s studios in Kodambakkam and later will be shifted to a Greenfield area in the suburbs. Initially the Conservatory expects training for about 150 students. Together with this conservatory, Rahman is founding a symphony orchestra in the Western mode,
