The Music Gurukul

The summer of 2001 saw the birth of The Music Gurukul from the suburb of Chembur in Mumbai. Having started from a single room to share guitar lessons with a bunch of enthusiastic local kids, The Music Gurukul (TMG) is now a full-fledged Music School that has trained more than 5000 students in various disciplines. TMG – the parent Institute that brings together under its wing :

  • Pro Guitar Academy (PGA)
  • The Drum School (TDS)
  • Violin & Strings Academy (VSA) 
  • Piano Circle (Keyboards & Piano)
  • Hindustani Vocal Technique
  • Western Vocal Approach
  • Music Production Course
  • PGA Music Store &
  • TMM Studios


As per ancient India, the Gurukul system of learning is the most sacred form of imparting knowledge from a Guru (teacher) to a Shishya (student). As we see our students put in long hours of practice and maintain a high level of dedication to music, we are confident that our teachers and students are definitely upholding the age-old traditions.

Tutors and students interact to understand music in great depth. All aspects of music theory and practicals are covered in these sessions. Students are given exposure to quality video and audio material in order to understand and learn from the music of the greatest artists of the world.

Younger students need parents to support and encourage them and be involved at every step of the way. Older students are required to ask questions, perform and take initiative. The Music Gurukul’s trained and passionate teachers will ensure that all students have a fun and power packed learning experience!

We are the only professional music school offering lessons for children, adults and seniors.


The Music Gurukul has been founded by guitarist, singer and music producer/composer – Hitesh Rupani.

A resident of Mumbai, Hitesh started by learning Guitars in 1998 from the finest teachers in Mumbai. He went ahead to learn Music at University of Limerick, Ireland. On his return, he got actively into live performances, composing and music production.
