In a country where status and wealth are the keys to unlocking educational and creative opportunities for children, the Mathieson Music School is breaking the mould. We seek to offer educational places to gifted and talented children whatever their background. Each child learns Bengali cultural studies alongside English, mathematics, and science. In addition to the regular timetable the children have Tabla lessons, Tagore singing lessons and learn Indian and Western classical music. School leavers with this breadth of education have the possibility of employment in the Indian film industry, military establishments, and the tourist industry. Mathieson Music school is a christian institution imparting Roman Catholic values in everyday life and teaching.
