Indian IDOL Academy Overview

Music training in India is as old as the race itself. Indian parents love to enrich their children culturally through music and dance. Indian Idol Academy is a mix of the traditional with contemporary. It goes beyond the normal brick and mortar structure of any other academy. The instruction is multimedia-based. It exploits the best possibilities of technology in developing a courseware that is thoroughly interactive and intensely engaging. It reinforces the free spirit of music. You can be a part of its immensely engaging music courses from anywhere, anytime.

Any training is incomplete until progress is scaled under defined standards. We at IIA offer you the power to track your progress while you enrich yourself musically through our precisely scalable courses.

At IIA, we start truly from the beginning. We help the individual discover his/her core talent and groom him/her to develop it. IIA is the first of its kind singing academy which focuses not only on polishing talent but also on discovering it. So whether you are a singer or a non singer, with a love for music, the doors of the academy are open for you.


The approach to curriculum is divided into 3 sections, gyan- focused on knowledge, kaushal- focused on skills, sadhana- focused on practice. Its focus reflects the training that contestants of the Idol show receive. A quick review of the curriculum makes it clear: Indian Idol Academy is not an ordinary program, but takes the student several leaps forward so they can learn what an aspiring professional singer learns in the very best training.

"Gyan" helps you understand Music orientation & basics. It includes Core technical ability combined with emotion; Pronunciation & articulation; Stage movement; Clothes and make-up, how the voice works; and how to practice to improve

"Kaushal" focuses on specific skills a singer and performer needs to perform their best: Art of performance; Stage presence; Connecting with an audience; Communication & presentation skills; Personal grooming & confidence; Thinking outside-the-box to surprise an audience; Emotional intelligence and its impact in singing and performing; and Listening skills – how to hear music more keenly

"Sadhana" focuses on the specific practices that develop a singer’s talent: Breathing techniques for vocal strength and control; Individual stylization; Selecting songs that best suit your voice; Breaking down and working through a song; Physical workout regime to enhance voice and body language; Team performance; Mock-band; Individual performance –Karaoke; Microphone techniques; Lyrics writing & composition; Following a prescribed diet – what to eat/drink – not eat/drink



Indian Idol Academy uses the OmniDEL™ system of learning. This path-breaking approach—developed by visionary educationist shri sourabh J. sarkar—engages the learner in ways that no other system of education does, and ensures an unprecedented level of effectiveness and impact.

We can talk about how this works and the unique approach of OmniDEL™ that engages the physical, pranic, mental and spiritual aspects of a learner in the act of deep learning, and creates the kind of learning experiences that a gifted teacher inspires - but the truth is, you have to experience it to really see why brand idol has chosen this approach. Our Festival of Music provides you an easy and inexpensive way to see how this works. We are betting your child leaves this Learning Festival even more in love with singing, and has a dozen things to tell you he/ she they learned.

She was born in New Delhi, in a Tamil Iyer family, and trained in Rabindra Sangeet even before beginning her education in classical Indian music. Initially, she used to work as a dubbing artiste, but gradually she gained prominence with a string of hits from 1942: A Love Story, Yaraana, Agni Sakshi, Bhairavi, and Khamoshi. By mid-1990s, Kavita established herself as a leading female singer. She has bagged a lot of awards in music including the Filmfare; and has also been awarded the Padma Shri in 2005. 


In his illustrious career spanning almost four decades, Hariharan has established himself as one of the most versatile and powerful singers in India. Born in Thiruvananthapuram, his musician’s genes were showcased through songs in Bollywood films like Roja, Border, Bombay and Rangeela, and various Tamil and Marathi films, which also won him several regional and two national awards. Ghazals are also a big part of his career. His collaboration with Leslie Lewis to form a fusion band Colonial Cousins was a major music event in 1996. In 2004, Hariharan was honoured with the Padma Shri by the Government of India.

Alka Yagnik

When famous actresses such as Hema Malini, Rekha, Kajol, and Preity Zinta are seen singing on screen, it is often actually Alka Yagnik’s voice.
