The Inimitable Guru

No other single individual has accomplished as much as TVG in the area of creating new generations of achievers in music. He has been unique in having spotted so many prodigies and talents in Music, and has successfully brought them into lime light in the past 25 years. During the last 4 decades, he has introduced the largest number of performing young artistes to the world of music. TVG’s disciples include many celebrities in India and abroad, who are maestros and great performers, much sought after in their respective fields.

Dr.TVG is today the most acknowledged specialist in the singing Voice and Voice therapy. The many phenomenal successes that he has produced vouch for the authenticity of Dr. TVG’s corrective techniques in Voice Culture. He has spent considerable time unraveling the intricate material on Voice-training, encompassing both ancient Vedic literature and modern scientific study of the singing voice, for bringing out a manual on the art of Indian classical vocal music.

Most Prominent Disciples




Western Music


Indian heritage and fine arts have endured the impact of myriad cultures, customs and faiths, over the centuries, and has withstood the test of time and soared high in the horizon of universal cultural ethos. Today, the need to produce good professional singers and instrumentalists in various traditional disciplines, as also scholars and technicians has become imperative. Attention to the Art of performance and the Art of Teaching in music has been side lined. An Integrated and unique Gurukula system of specialized musical education with absolute focus on the above is essential and it is the only answer to check the declining interest in Classical and Indian Music Culture. With the above objectives and others incidental to these in mind, A.I.M.A. (Academy of Indian Music & Arts, Regd) better known as Dr TVG’s AIMA was founded in 1984 by the legendary musician Guruji Dr.T.V.Gopalakrishnan and registered as a Charitable trust.
