Taaqademy began with a small jam room, 4 instructors and a handful of students in 2010.
Taaqademy is now the largest ecosystem for music and musicians in the city of Bangalore. Our Online Music Programs are also taking the brand all over the country and the world.
Music is at the heart of everything we do. Including our name! The 'TAAQ' in TAAQADEMY comes from 'Thermal And A Quarter', one of India's foremost Independent English Rock Bands. With a 24-year career under its collective belt, TAAQ continues to break new ground while staying relevant.
The band's 2020 album 'A World Gone Mad' has just been awarded the #1 Spot on Rolling Stone Magazine's 'Best Albums of 2020' list, and has been featured on 'Best of the Year' lists from A Humming Heart, Indiegaga, (IND), Sounds from the Superhighway (USA), The Eppy Gibbon Show (UK) and more! Bruce & Rajeev from TAAQ are personally involved in TAAQADEMY to a large extent.
"Taaqademy is of, by and for musicians. As active performing musicians ourselves, we understand what it takes to get there - and how to do it right."
- Rajeev Rajagopal, Founder, Taaqademy

"Our whole approach, our philosophy, if you like, is about getting past information to inspiration. Information is free. Inspiration is where the magic is."
- Bruce Lee Mani, Founder, Taaqademy

Like our founders, Taaqademy Faculty are largely active performing musicians. Some have degrees and qualifications from prestigious, internationally recognized music institutions. Others are self-taught stalwarts.
This pragmatic understanding of music enables us to customize and structure courses, emphasize live performance and deliver a learning experience that inspires and motivates every student.
1:1 IS WHAT WE'RE ABOUT
We've believed that music is best taught 1:1 from the start. Our accountants are convinced this makes little business sense, but hey we're still here 10 years in, and still committed to this ideal. It's how we're able to tailor-make our courses for you.
BY MUSICIANS FOR MUSICIANS
From founders to management, we're an organization that plays, lives, breathes and works with music. There's love, passion, discipline (and a cheery bit of madness) in everything we do.
