The year 2000 marks the 23'rd Anniversary of the existence of the Smt. Siddheshwari Devi Academy of Indian Music. The Academy came into being in 1977, the year Siddheshwari Devi, the eminent 'Thumri

Queen', mother of Vidushi Savita Devi, passed away.

The Academy started taking students to train them in Indian Music with special emphasis on the Banaras Gharana style of rendition of thumris, dadras, chaitis, etc. Initially, the Academy started with only five pupils. Today, it has many students of all age groups, from all walks of life, and from diverse
religious backgrounds.

The primary aim of the Academy is to under take education, training, research, propagation and all related activities, programmes and projects for the promotion of Hindustani style of Indian classical and light classical music. The other paramount objective is to preserve the musical heritage left behind
by the eminent musical giants like Badi Motibai, Rasoolanbai, Begum Akhtar, and, above all, Smt. Siddheshwari Devi.

Classes are now held at Gurgaon (Contact Nos. +919312223946 , +919313323946 , 0124-4083396).. Students come from far away regions of India as also from abroad. Through the Academy they are given training in Indian classical and semi-classical music.

Each year the Academy organizes annual functions. Through these functions, the Academy provides, on the one hand, a platform for its students to exhibit their musical talents; on the other hand, it organizes performances of great musicians and conducts seminars. The past twenty-three years of the Academy
have been marked with glorious performances of artists like Smt. Girja Devi, Late Naina Devi, Late Nirmala Arun, Pt Mani Prasad, Shovna Narayan, Shubha Mudgal, Dr Prabha Atre, Neena and Rajendra Mehta, Sharan Rani, Lav Kush Bandhu and many more.

In 1997, the Academy introduced the 'Swar Siddhi Award', which is given to artists who have greatly
contributed to the enrichment of Indian Music. In 1997, the 'Swar Siddhi Award' was given to Smt Sharan Rani, the sarod maestro, for her tremendous contribution in the field of music. For 1998
 and 1999, this award was given to Pandit Ganesh Prasad Mishra, and Pandit Mani Prasad respectively, both eminent vocalists.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that the Academy, committed to a cause, is flourishing and contributing greatly to the enrichment of the cultural life of our country.
