Apple Mac Labs in India

Apple Music is joining hands with A R Rahman to set up two Music Labs in India. The Music Labs will be set up at KM Music Conservatories (KMMC) based in Chennai and Mumbai. The KM Music Conservatory was founded by A.R. Rahman to teach and strengthen the art of Indian music. The institution also offers an education in Western music and music technology.

The Mac Labs will teach students how to create music using Logic Pro X, Apple’s professional music creation app for the Mac. Apple music is also contributing to fund 10 full time musical scholarships for students from underprivileged backgrounds.

Eddy Cue, senior vice president of Internet Software and Services said,

It’s an honour to be in Mumbai and I am humbled to be in the presence of the talented A.R. Rahman to make this announcement together. Apple Music and the KM Music Conservatory share a deep love in discovering, sharing and nurturing musical talent and we’re proud to be supporting such an institution that is investing in the future arts and music community.
A R Rahman said in a statement,
Music is a healer for today’s world and we share the same affinity and love of music with Apple Music. The labs and scholarships at KMMC make an invaluable contribution to helping to develop the talents of tomorrow’s musicians and composers. For over 20 years, I’ve been a loyal Logic Pro user and am excited to be on this journey together with Apple.
