OSM’s philosophy on music learning and performance supports an end to end approach. We strongly believe that a musician’s journey is not limited to learning music theory and building performance skill . OSM is consolidating a holistic approach for music sojourners with a focus on a 4 step programme.

1.Prepare: At the outset, learning is linked as closely as possible to one’s own natural ability which is then nurtured to achieve highest possible execution skills. Execution skill is developed utilizing appropriate curriculum taught by the highly-skilled Team OSM

2.Practice: OSM offers engaging practice sessions with the team utilizing unique techniques and exercises. The highly individualized classes will offer the student the attention they truly need.

3.Perform: We believe performance sessions among peer musicians offer an unparalleled opportunity for students to learn lessons which cannot be taught in solitude. Concerts and recitals are curated at regular intervals to exhibit developed skill. Focus is, to enable communication of a message through music in a manner that engages audience.

4.Publish: For serious music career-oriented learners, OSM maintains an acoustically engineered jampad and recording facilities that support development in music arena.

Team OSM

P Adarsh

Gifted with immense talent, Adarsh belongs to a clan of naturally gifted musicians who can pick up any instrument and start communicating with notes and rhythm. Adarsh had no problem, however, in choosing his primary instrument when he found himself fixated on the biggest and baddest sounding instrument usually at the centre of any contemporary rock performance. His love for the drums, was an affair his parents gladly supported from an early age even when his foot could barely reach the kick drum pedal. Growing up, Adarsh was a constant fixture in school, college and city bands and completed all grades with Rockschool while finishing a college degree. Anytime of the day (and some nights as well!) you will find Adarsh passionately drumming away, instructing wards, performing gigs with the OSM team and city bands. He is one of the founding musicians at OSM.

Deborah Trott

Deborah is possibly from a planet that breeds intellectual musicians. Rather different from artists who generally don’t enjoy formal music education, Deborah has always been top tier in her curriculum. Lassoing high grades, she obtained admission to premier institutions with ease, while playing and singing all along like she is meant to be doing nothing else. Younger sibling to another distinguished OSM teacher, Amanda Trott, both of them often perform as a duo with audiences pining for encores. While her journey in music began with the acoustic guitar, Deborah is especially fond of bass guitar and wide-ranged vocals. Deborah has been an integral part of OSM’s founding team with Adarsh.

Amanda Trott

Fondly known as Mandy ma’am, her students take an instant liking to her jovial and chirpy personality. Amanda jumped at playing keyboards during middle school. At home, wisely mentored by her guitar and bass-playing dad, she got busy working on piano and vocals with her versatile sibling and co-mentor, Deborah. On completing her degree, this passion drew her to choosing work commitments that gave her opportunities to exercise her music skills as well as spend time with early learners since she was equally passionate about teaching. Amanda supports students interested in learning piano and vocals.

Ben Toshi

Ben’s drive to perfection with his drumming skills goes back to the influence music had during his early years. Being brought up by parents who would sing in church choirs often and frequently participating in shows during his youth, Ben was always surrounded by music. In fact, he still is surrounded by music as he sits on his drum throne and plays skillfully. Ben’s background with music might be strongly familial but he is of the belief that music isn’t solely something that runs in your genes as long as it runs in your blood. That’s why he is constantly honing his skills alongside becoming a better mentor for his students.


Wati Lemdor

Wati first picked up the guitar at the age of 11-12 being the youngest in a family of musicians. Swept by the beauty of the music around him, Wati decided to pursue formal music education in school back during 9th grade itself. Right after his schooling, he did a BA with Music as a subject, followed by a Bachelor’s of Music from Margaret Shishak School of Music, majoring in Classical Guitar. Wati currently teaches Classical and Contemporary Guitar and hopes to hone his skills and grow as a performer and teacher.

Richard Kath

From a very young age, Richard was drawn to music, keenly observing his mother play the guitar at home. Later, he himself picked up the acoustic guitar and tried to figure out the chords the songs on his dad’s cassettes. The passion Richard had grew over time as he played in a gospel band and got a teacher for classical guitar.
Continuing his journey, he started a four year Bachelor’s of Music degree from Margaret Shishak School of Music back in 2015. Richard found a platform to pass on his learnings at OSM as he now teaches Electric and Acoustic Guitar as well as the Violin. He plans to study music further and teach underprivileged students in the future.

Dethpuh Narzary

Dethpuh’s passion for music started at a very young age, taking piano lessons from his local church organ player. He went on to enroll himself in a Bachelor’s of Music (Piano) program at Patkai Christian College. He teaches Piano at OSM but enjoys playing Guitar and Singing as well. He loves to perform and see people happy. He looks forward to writing music for movies someday because he believes music plays a huge role in conveying a person’s emotions. He also wants to work on records of his own and impart his love for music to people. 

Neelima Jacob

OSM’s first lady is gifted with gladness to spread within OSM community. Neelima was thrown into a whirlpool of musicians after marrying a music maniac, naturally she started learning piano herself. Now, she teaches the new, fresh-off-the-boat batch of students and guides them in their journey, enriching their passion for music. Being a partner in the core vision, she is fiercely protective of OSMW’s mission.

Swarnaraj Jacob

Swarnaraj Jacob is a firm believer that every soul sings a unique song. He claims, “Music can be heard from every human being if one just pays attention” . Born into a family accomplished in western classical instruments back in the mid 70s, it was no surprise when a four year old Swarnaraj picked up a mouth organ and started to play songs, much to the delight of his parents and family. Eventually, he was drawn to the guitar and learnt to play the instrument on his own before completing high school.
He went on to play regularly with college bands at fests and led music at church.

Swarnaraj currently pursues a highly engaging career at Organon, an International Pharmaceutical. While his career keeps him busy, his passion for music never wanes. He mentors OSM team in his spare time and is always available to guide anyone wishing to pursue musical skills for personal or professional goals.


Am one of the lucky ones to be at OSM learning vocals. It has been a very fulfilling and enriching experience. Its a time to unwind and enjoy. Top class faculty that set up me and my son (on piano). We look forward to each session and always wish OSM family the very best...

OSM brings the performer out of everyone. Its the stage, the inspiration, the honesty. Reminds me of the movie " The School of Rock". With a rock star team that's so real, it shines like a crazy diamond amidst fakeness so abundant in this latitude!
