The students and staff members of all institutions thanked Chairperson and Managing Trustee of Swami Dayananda Educational Trust and Smt. Bombay Jayashri Ramnath for her great and wonderful efforts.
Smt. Bombay Jayashri Ramanath is not new to the village. The famed music composer and her students are quite popular amongst the students of the Swami Dayananda Matric Higher Secondary School in Manjakkudi, Tamil Nadu.
For the last four years, every Friday, Smt. Ramnath and her students have been teaching music to the students of the Swami Dayananda Matric Higher Secondary School in Manjakkudi, Tamil Nadu.
In all, musical training has made a huge difference to the lives of rural children who come to Swami Dayananda Matric Higher Secondary School, Manjakkudi. Many of them have been able to develop a keen musical sense. Some of them have been able to overcome stage fear by giving performances on the dais. Our pupils have also been able to gain critical life skills such as confidence and performance in public. The exposure to classical music has led to marked changes in the overall personality of students at the Swami Dayananda Matric Higher Secondary School, Manjakkudi.
Not only do students regularly look forward to the Friday music class, the school teachers also do their bit by recording the songs that are played back on Saturday during the activity period. Students hear the recording and practice alongside.
