The mission of the Ali Akbar College
of Music is to teach, perform and preserve the classical
music of North India—specifically the Seni Baba Allauddin
Gharana (tradition)—and to offer this great musical legacy
to all who wish to learn. All of our classes are offered in person at AACM and online worldwide.
Welcome to the AACM
ALI AKBAR KHAN LIBRARY
We are very excited to present the new Ali Akbar Khan Library free to both the general public and students of AACM. When the library is utilized in conjunction with our teacher's instruction, students can draw from the extensive archives of Maestro Ali Akbar Khan's recorded classes/concerts, creating the ultimate learning experience. We encourage both students and non-students of AACM to enjoy and benefit from this rich musical treasure. For more info on the AAK Library, as well as listen to audio examples of archived classes, please visit www.aliakbarkhanlibrary.com
