About the College
Famous vocalist and violinist
Sangeetha Vidwan Late L.S.Narayanaswamy
Bhagavathar established the Vijaya College of Music in the year 1953 with
the help of his students and well-wishers in the Basavanagudi area of
Bangalore. From then onwards, numerous students have obtained training
in both the Lakshya and Lakshana aspects of music from this institution.
Many students have taken up music itself as a profession.
After Bhagavathar attained the Lotus Feet of the Lord, the college shifted
from Basavanagudi to the Jayanagar area of Bangalore. From then onwards,
the college has grown in leaps and bounds but has always retained Bhagavathar's
ideals . Recognizing hidden talent in the youth and channelizing it in
the right direction was one of Bhagavathar's many virtues. The college
has successfully maintained this goal of Bhagavathar.
Currently, the college is headed by Bhagavathar's nephew and renowned
violinist Prof. H.V.Krishnamurthy. Under his able hands many musicians
have flowered and have a cause of pride not only for Karnataka but also
for the country.
Along with Carnatic music theory, Carnatic vocal, violin,
veena, flute and mridngam training are provided by the college. The college
also has many other activities. All the students of the college are not only
excellent musicians but are also shining in other professions such as
engineering or medicine.
