The GJA Experience

Joining GJA is the best academy you will find in Goa to gear U up with all the necessary Musical Skills whether be it Theoretically or Practically in order to be a very efficient and effective musician. The classes are very goal-oriented and the Saturday Jams are the best part of the place. The thing with Jazz music is if u learn it, u can go out there and play any music and communicate with any type of musician there is. 100 percent recommend

Siddharth Chettiar

This is a great place for exposure! AND learning music at the same time as a musician, amongst the musical environment that the school has to offer! Was wonderful! Being a part of it and learning a lot from not just the educational POV but also the musical vibe! the place offers! A must recommend for musicians to experience and learn😊😃
