About TIKM

Music and dance Exams

Since 1992, the principal activity of TIKM is to organize standardized Carnatic music and Bharathanatyam dance examinations for Canadian students. These annual exams are held in Toronto during the autumn months.

Two main projects, which have been initiated by the current administrative cycle, are a series of music competitions and scholarships for Carnatic students in Canada.

The scholarship program was intended to address the common complaint by Carnatic students that their musical achievements were not being recognized by postsecondary academic institutions.

Carnatic Music and Dance Concerts

Besides examinations, TIKM’s main objective is to provide concert venues for both seasoned professionals and elementary students of Carnatic music. To this effect, they frequently hold general music recitals in addition to themed programs (such as the Papanasam Sivan festivals) where students of all skill levels perform.
