Dubai, United Arab
Emirates, 24th May 2022:
Famed Indian singer, music composer and
Mentor, Sheykhar Ravjiani recently visited the Global Indian International
School’s
(GIIS) Dubai campus. Sheykhar is an
award-winning Indian music composer, singer, mentor and a part of the
song-writing duo Vishal-Shekhar hailing from Mumbai. Known predominantly for
his work in Indian cinema, Sheykhar, as part of the Leadership Lecture Series
initiative by GIIS, interacted with the young minds at the school across all
ages who were delighted to meet him. This was followed by a Masterclass, an
interactive session with select students where they showcased their talent and
were mentored in person by Sheykhar.

Sheykhar has won many Indian and International awards for his music
compositions and being an icon in the music industry, he was welcomed with an
earnest performance by the students based on the duo’s famous songs.

Sheykhar Ravjiani has
been associated with GIIS for many years, since the GIIS – Sheykhar Ravjiani
School of Music began in 2020. This marks a first of its kind collaboration
between a global education institution and an Indian musician to launch a
focused program to nurture and mentor upcoming talent in the field of music
using state-of-the-art infrastructure and futuristic technology. Students
across GIIS’ 26 campuses world over have access to this school of music. In its
second successful year, we have over 30 students who are currently receiving
mentorship, with more being enrolled in the coming term. It’s an excellent
expansion in the innovative education offered by GIIS. The two parties have
joined forces through this initiative to offer mentorship to talented students
from a pool of 15,000 using the school’s cutting-edge infrastructure and
futuristic technology. 

GIIS has long been a supporter of education with real world examples.
By providing students with the appropriate exposure adds value to their
learning. Their 9 GEMS technology is a holistic approach to learning that
combines in-class and out-of-class experiences. Sheykhar Ravjiani’s visit is a
continuous effort to provide genuine instances of leadership so that the
students may absorb the values they represent. It’s not just Sheykhar’s talent
that students can learn from; it’s also his commitment, imagination and bravery
in attempting new things in the field of music.

Sheykhar Ravjiani
said, “I was thrilled to be a part of this event. The students were so engaged
and ardent to be taught the different techniques. It was admirable to see their
creative minds at work. I’m sure they’ll go a long way in their musical
careers. Music is an important part of education and I believe it helps develop
a creative mindset. It allows students to tap into their creativity and to
express themselves in new and unique ways. I am glad that GIIS is empowering
its students by giving them exceptional exposure to this valuable art.
Interacting with the students here was a lovely experience and I hope all schools
would inculcate innovative subjects like music in their academic curriculum.”

Amol Vaidya, Senior
Director Operations GIIS Dubai
said, “I am truly delighted to have a musical
genius like Sheykhar come and be a part of the GIIS campus. Our aim at GIIS has
always been to help our students develop these essential qualities of
leadership. As a result, an encounter with such figures helps them fully
comprehend the value of creative thinking and instils in them the desire to
dream big outside their usual disciplines
.”

GIIS strives to teach its students these
values through real interaction with people who are at the top of their fields
by holding such events. Such activities provide a rare opportunity for students
to learn about and interact with the inner workings of a leader.
