Tara Kini : Music and Learning at TEDxDomlurChange

Tara Kini is an explorer of creative combinations and permutations, integrating art and music, consulting with reputed educational institutions in India in the areas of curriculum development and teachers' professional development. She was Head, Teacher Education, at the Centre of Education, Research, Training and Development, Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology. She taught physics and music at Mallya Aditi International School for twenty years, the exactness of science and the fluid, meandering, improvisatory nature of music hand in hand.For her, this is a journey without end, the destinations along the way often serendipitous places of adventitious discovery. In music there are no hard and fast rules, no fixed outcomes; it is a kind of footloose medium. Music, a seeking, a striving for finite goals with a form that has infinite capacity, learning happening as it unspools. She had discovered a new creative tool to convey new ideas and concepts, and children probed deep, embellishing them with their own creativity. "As an educator, my quest is to look for what we need most in the world today. Peace seems to be the obvious answer. Crossing religious boundaries through music appears to be the way forward." In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
