But, what is special about Vijayadashami? Let’s learn a little about this day, the mythologies associated with it, and why it is a good omen to start music classes on this day.
What is Vijayadashami?
In the South of India, after the festival of Navratri (nine nights) concludes with the Saraswathi Puja (on the 9th day), the 10th day is called Vijayadashami. Vijayadashami means victory on the 10th day. In 2021, Vijayadashami falls on October 15.
In the true Indian tradition of diversity, there are several different stories about this day because of which it got its name.

This time-honored tradition of beginning classes on this day helps bring an element of seriousness and commitment into practice. As you begin to learn at this sacred time, you experience a unique resolve to take your pursuit towards excellence. Don’t miss out on the chance of making music one of those skills you carry with you all your life.
Indian classical music – Carnatic and Hindustani are closely associated with Indian history, culture, and traditions. Music can be the vital link that goes beyond the different ages, generations, and genders, and connects people to their roots. Children, in particular, feel a sense of bonding with Indian heritage when they learn music. What better time than during one of the most festive periods of the year?
Vijayadashami follows Navratri, which is filled with festivities and celebrations. Song and dance are an integral part of this season. It is the most natural progression to learn music in some form at this time. While children as young as 2 are initiated into music on this day, it is also a great time for adults to revisit their passion for musical instruments or test their vocal cords, not to mention start afresh with rhythm and melody in their lives.
