Addressing mediapersons here yesterday, Veena E Gayathri, Vice Chancellor of the university said 'the syllabus has been formulated in line with tradition and with lot of expertise. The vocal syllabus will apply to violin and veena also, so that their music is full of bhavam'.

'My aim is to impart full fledged training with high importance on practice. If time warrants, I plan to impart my research findings about the veena to students and make them realise its importance,' she said.

The university will function from the premises of the government college of music at R A Puram. The courses commence on 2 August. Application forms will be available from 2 to 21 July. The number of seats available for each course are from 25 - 30.
