Our Mission

In 1987, Pandit Sharda Sahai and Dr Frances Shepherd founded the Pandit Ram Sahai Sangit Vidyalaya (PRSSV), a charitable trust that seeks to give people of all walks of life a chance to experience and learn the performing arts of India. PRSSV along with its subsidiary trust Pandit Ram Sahai Foundation is a global organisation with branches in India, Canada and the USA.
PRSSV's Sangeet College was set up as a centre of learning where students from all backgrounds have the opportunity with the brightest and most talented teachers. It has a strong sense of community, which provides an inspiring environment for students to learn from teachers as well as each other. The college offers an interactive style of teaching, where equal emphasis is placed on learning to perform as well as the theory behind the particular art form.
At the heart of it all, PRSSV is a community of artists, parents, friends, students and music lovers.
