Who are we?IMG-20130918-WA004

Music is a great form of art and for those passionate about it, it is a way to transform oneself to another world. IE Music Club understands that all students at IE work hard throughout and need time to unwind and follow their interests. Music is a one of the best forms of stress buster and we have a mission to help students pursue their passion and meet likeminded people to explore, listen, and create music.

Current Coordinators

Nikhil Aggarwal (President) – he is studying IMBA prior to which he was a finance professional. He is a singer (oh yes, he always wanted someone to call him that), not by profession but by interest and also likes exploring new music. He is the sole club coordinator of the Music Club and performed at the IE India Club’s Diwali event in 2012. He is from India and a few of his favorite English songs are – Iris from Goo Goo Dolls and With or Without You from U2.

The club holds weekly music practice sessions on Wednesday’s from 7pm – 9pm at studio BoxInBox (c/ Sanchez Pacheco 82). This has been possible due to full support and effort from Giedre and the Music Club would like to say a special thanks to her for getting this through. Everyone who is interested in music such as singing or playing instruments can drop in and jam with us. Apart from that the music club is open for other suggestions regarding the activities that members are interested in.

Our Vision

The main project that IE Music Club is working towards is to get likeminded people having an interest in music together and form an IE Band. Once that is formed and they have rehearsed together,  IE Music Club also plans to create an official IE slogan to be used in the years to come.

Get in touch and participate!

The club has a Facebook Page that can be liked to receive the latest updates from IE Music Club. There is a IE Music Club group as well on Facebook. Any student can become a member of the music club by going to IE communities and selecting the box in front of IE Music Club on the clubs page. The music club coordinator can also be contacted separately at his email.
