For more than 40 years, Payelia has been a leading school of Indian Classical Music and Dance in Kolkata, the cultural capital of India. This leadership is not based on the numeric strength of the students of this esteemed institution but is based on the quality of musical education that it imparts and the healthy teacher-student relationship that it maintains.

For the past 40yers this school has arranged for number of shows dedicated to Indian Classical Music, both by eminent personalities of this field and by the student of this institute. The aim was to spread the beauty and essence of Indian Classical Music amongst the masses.

To evaluate the education imparted of its students, the institute has affiliated itself with the Prayag Sangit Samity, Allahabad for an examination system which the students undertake every year with full zest.

The tireless effort of the principal and other teacher of the school to impart the best musical education amongst the students makes his institution an exception in this business minded world.
