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.

Recently, TIKM has also begun organizing music seminars where visiting music academics can deliver lectures and workshops. In the summer of 2005, Gayatri Sankaran conducted a seminar on the “History of Tamil Music”. Increasing student participation in these seminars is one of the major goals of TIKM.
