Aria Music and Theatre Conservatory is the fruit of labour of Hitesh Madan (lead guitarist of Euphoria) and Payal Sharma Madan, who embarked on this journey with a vision to bring under one roof the teaching and learning of the performing arts. The school was initially started as a centre for formal learning in music, and then later expanded to include speech and drama.
Aria is the only one of its kind school in west Delhi and what sets it apart is that it is the only performing arts school to stage original musicals: right from designing a concept, scripting, writing lyrics, producing and composing music, to preparing performers to present a whole show in a true musical format.
The two primary focii at Aria are:
- To get students to take exams and thus get accreditation from universally recognized universities, Trinity, London and Rockschool, London.
- To provide ample scope for students to perform live in order to help apply what they learn and gain hands-on experience.
