Raunak Agarwal, Director, Roland Music School said, "The Concept of music in a new way for self entertainment cannot be brought without any improvisation in the society."

Agarwal said, "The crave for singing a song, playing V-Drums, creating Variations, tuning on guitars, synching with the tips of fingers on a Piano to Keyboard is still not felt by every individual, until the physical presence of such desires appear. They Vanish in thoughts, melt in dreams and our crave and soul remains incomplete."

He added, "To acquire the rhythm, sound of beats, strings of peace, we have begun the show 'Roland Music School'. We acknowledge the incorporation/association of best musical instrument brand in the world ROLAND. It is in itself an encouragement to develop a good business and give everyone an opportunity to carry with them 'the pride of ROLAND'."

"We assure loyalty to each and every person, who engages with us in learning and departing music. Thus, the wavelength of music brings peace and develops a sharp mind!" he said.

Jyoti Bansal, Chief Executive Officer (CEO)/Director, Roland Music School and Owner of Happy Hours said, "This is why we teach music at RMS... not because we expect you to major in music, not because we expect you to play or sing all your life, not so you can relax and have fun... But so you will be human, so you will recognize beauty, so you will be closer to an infinite beyond this world, so you will have something to cling to, more love, more compassion, more gentleness... In short, more LIFE!!!"
