Some words about United Lyra Music School - Savitha Gautam, parent of Amithav Gautam, Grade 6 piano student 2019

About five years ago,  we  were  looking  for  somebody who could teach our son Amithav to play the piano. A friend suggested Lyra school of Music, which

My kids, along with their cousins, attend the “United Lyra Music school” and our experience with the school and teachers is simply phenomenal. I was impressed right from the time William Sir asked the kids first, to explore the music that they would want to travel into, before they made their choice on an instrument to learn. 


The school’s teaching style to give the kids their own space, room to build their passion, and rightfully investing in their strengths, is truly commendable.


Thank you Lyra, and wish William Sir and his team the very best to kindle much more passionate musicians.
