The cultivation of any art is a journey involving passion and hard work. One of the most important factors determining a person's ability to be a successful artist, or even a connoisseur, is how he or she gets introduced to the art form. The ability of the teacher or the guide to cultivate interest and passion for the art therefore plays a pivotal role.

Nithya fervently believes that appreciation and ability for music should be cultivated in everybody. Since music has enormous powers that can please the heart, heal the body and enrich the mind, it should be available to one and all. Indian classical music is unique, rich and complex. Understanding the structure and norm of Indian classical music goes a long way in helping develop its appreciation.

Through her initiative 'The Music Tree' TM, Nithya aspires to create knowledge and appreciation of Indian Classical music in the young and old alike. 'The Music Tree' TM is an umbrella of learning through which Nithya reaches people using two methods:
  • Workshops and Lecture/Concert Demonstrations
  • Teaching
