Furtados School of Music (FSM), an enterprise that sowed its visionary seeds in the year 2011 has now blossomed into one of India’s leading and most trusted brands in imparting the gift of music to every musically inclined soul. As it thrives on creativity and innovative thinking, it has radicalized an entire era of music education by launching FSM-Buddy. An online learning platform, which is solely designed with the purpose of extending learning opportunities in a diverse range of creative avenues. As it continues to embrace a versatile approach towards academia, FSM Buddy seeks to revive the essence of passionate learning, which has been restrained by the pressures of our monotonous routines. By creating an enriching learning environment for every promising learner, FSM Buddy has restructured the ways in which learning is perceived by the masses. No longer are we drawn towards the mechanical ways of rote learning or education that encourage passivity and stunt our creative imagination. By redefining the previously held notions of academia, FSM Buddy aspires to create a collaborative learning environment where dreams seem closer to reality, and a place where opportunities are born.
As we progress into an era of digitization, the virtual world has evolved into our new normal, which continues to bridge geographical and spatial barriers. At Furtados School of Music, we refuse to be your stop along the way; rather we are the destination that positively influences different areas of your life. From our singing course, art and craft, speech and acting course, language course to dance class online we embrace every distinct aspect of your passions and aspirations, as we acclaim to diversify your interests within various creative domains.
Over the years, Furtados School of Music as an enterprise has created an identity for itself which is synonymous with music. We live and breathe music, in the most real sense as we strive to revolutionize the entire arts learning experience. Our music classes along with our singing classes have made progressive strides towards ensuring equal opportunities in a cost-effective manner. As students learn music online, they bask in their own creativity and grow into extraordinary performers. Truly a rewarding learning experience, which opens their eyes to the endless possibilities in the world of art.
As we connect our students with a community of experienced educators and performers, we not only foster a multicultural classroom environment, where students are presented with opportunities to forge meaningful relationships with their mentors and peers, but also bring their creative interests and passions to life, by offering them a wide repertoire of creativity development courses. By making learning fun and accessible to each and every student, we ignite a spark of creativity in their lives, as they embrace the joys of relentless learning. Along with our online music classes, we have diversified in different creative avenues like online acting classes and online dance classes that provide young impressionable minds with an outlet to engage in the art of creative expression. Creativity is truly an intrinsic part of a child’s formative years, which they are often deprived of due to the paucity of learning resources. FSM Buddy aims to remedy these pressing issues, by incorporating creative arts within the fabric of academia, thereby giving it a more versatile approach. By espousing modern ways of learning, we endeavour to reverse the ways in which individuals engage with their academics. We recognize their hidden talents and their potential to achieve excellence in all their learning endeavours, as we dedicate ourselves to their growth as artists and performers. By giving them an exceptional learning experience, we expand their creative horizons and diversify their experiences.
Our language courses are an integral part of our curriculum, which pave the way for career advancement and growth opportunities. We provide students with courses in English, French, Spanish, German, and Mandarin that welcome new perspectives and ways of thinking into their lives. As students learn languages, they grow into critical thinkers, with a knack for reinforcing their ideas and opinions to a larger audience. The grace and authenticity that comes with welcoming diverse cultures, allows students to expand their social circles along with forming meaningful relationships with like-minded individuals. It is an asset that will continue to nurture their creative abilities throughout their lives! Thus, by branching out in different creative avenues, FSM Buddy attempts to provide students with a well-rounded academic curriculum that gives every promising student a creative outlet to pursue their artistic aspirations....
