About i-genius young singing stars

Music is an integral part of not only our culture but also our day to day lives. Your little one has been surrounded with music from the time he was born. The lullabies that you sung to him were his initiation into the world of music. The beauty of music is such that it brings joy to the singers as well as the people around them.

Children have different ways of not only adapting but also expressing music. From enjoying the morning rituals to remembering math tables to breaking good news to having fun with friends, the children find their owns ways of making music integral to their daily lives.

In the last decade we have seen extraordinary brilliance in young children in this field and we believe that through guidance and support such talented young ones can be identified and encouraged and set upon a path that could change their lives.
