In ancient India, the concept of ‘Gurukul’ was prevalent and most popular. Poor or rich; educated or not, parents sent their kids to renowned gurus for "Shiksha". The kids stayed in the residence of their guru and learnt valuable life lessons along with much needed education. After a span of a few years, the kids emerge meritorious, ready to spread their knowledge in their chosen profession and bring laurels to their guru.
ICIMP (International Certification for Indian Music Practitioner) is a modern way of online music certification levels embraces this concept and has a carefully structured format that is formulated by eminent music gurus who are all doctorate degree holders in their respective music fields and authorized by renowned established Musicians in the fields. When students are learning from various music schools or individual teacher, there is no significant presence of quality accredited body to ascertain the students skills and motivate them to pursue more in the music.
