The Pichumani School of Carnatic Music was founded by Iyer Brothers in Melbourne in 1990, named after their Guru, veena maestro Sri R. Pichumani. The school serves the educational needs of the Australian Carnatic Music (South Indian Classical Music) community, and is also one of the key cultural ambassadors of India in Australia. It promotes Indian music through teaching, concerts, lecture-demonstrations, and presentations. Voice as well as instrument (veena) are taught. The school celebrated its silver jubilee in 2015 with a series of concerts by the senior students of the school ably supported by Melbourne’s resident musicians and their students.
