    Congratulations and all the best. It is great to know that budding young musicians from Mangalore can now get instruments of their choice to pursue their interests in Mangalore itself.

    In the past one had to look up to relatives and friends in bigger cities and overseas to bring them what they wanted. Now they can visit Symphony and choose instruments of their liking.

    Today we have many kinds who would love to learn music, but are not able to find the right teachers. I therefore hope that Symphony will also work towards bringing music teachers and aspiring learners together in the city.
