Sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan wants to see schools across the world, especially in India, devote one period exclusively for discussions on culture, music and tradition so that the younger generations respect their rich heritage.

“I appeal to schools that one period should be set aside where children sit without their books and listen to their teachers talk about traditions, music and culture...

“Where children talk about their feelings. About their parents and grandparents and get to realise the contributions parents make in bringing them up,” Khan said.

“The seven musical notes, be it western or Indian, are connected to tuning our minds and should be taught to children.

Music will help the growth of a child, they must learn and feel each musical note,” the maestro said.
