Department of Gurmat Sangeet and Music Vocal

Our college is one of the leading institutions, affiliated to Punjabi University, Patiala. It came into existence in 1968 through the collective efforts of certain well know personalities of the area, prominent among the being Sant Mohinder Singh “Harkhowal wale”, The establishment of the college in fact, was the realization of a long cherished dream.

Music is a beautiful form of expression. It is that form of art that evolves continuously. Everyone has some form of passion towards Music within them, either in the form of a desire to learn or listening for relaxation. Gurmat Sangeet as a Subject was introduced in the year 2008. Gurmat Sangeet as an independent academic discipline has been introduced to create awareness and spread the knowledge and essence of Sikh Sacred Music among people of diverse cultures. Since then the Department is doing all out efforts to Promote and preserve the Gurmat Sangeet tradition. 

Music vocal as a subject was introduced in the year 2014. The Department of Music Vocal & Gurmat Sangeet is doing all out efforts to excel not only in the field of Indian Classical Music and Gurbani Kirtan but also in the other forms of Indian Music i.e. Light,  Folk Music and as well as Western Music. The department of vocal music is truly an unmatched, unparalleled, remarkable and outstanding component of this prestigious institution. The experience of learning for the students in the department is truly very unique as they pursue their academic carrier with music as a subject on one hand and they learn classical vocal music on the other. Through this way the students get benefited from both the experiences; studying in a regular manner; acquiring knowledge through the modern teaching aids and learning a subject like music vocal through the traditional way of learning i.e. “Guru-Shishye Parampara”.
The department has shown a remarkable progress since it came into existence; it’s with the blessings of almighty, that the management has started Master of Arts (Hindustani Classical Music) from session 2022-2023.

The P.G. Department of Music Vocal & Gurmat Sangeet , Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College Sri Anandpur Sahib has set up a Music studio  in the college. This initiative taken by the management is going to be a milestone for students and will be very helpful for a better and practical understanding of Music. Also, students can now be trained in a more vocational manner and this will raise the bar of the already excellent Department of Music Vocal & Gurmat Sangeet. Under the keen supervision of our worthy Principal and with his ever encouraging support, the faculty is committed to use this facility. The studio will be a great initiative to restore the forgotten legacy of Sikh Traditional and Cultural values by recording the forgotten Vaars, Kawishris, Devotional songs and Shabad Kirtan.

The department has well-furnished Three rooms with modern facilities like wifi internet, modern musical electronic gadgets etc. Presently my students are pursuing their carrier in Indian Classical Music Vocal, light Music and Gurmat Sangeet and the Department is working and progressing under the supervision of Prof. Jagpinderpal Singh (01-07-2009 to till the date) and the able guidance of Principal Dr. Jasvir Singh. Thus the department provides a platform to students at under graduate level to understand music and gives the post graduate students an opportunity to learn Indian Classical Music with specialization in composition, stage performance, and musicology and music technology.
