Artium Academy, online music learning and community platform that powers tech-led, performance-based learning and engagement has raised $3 million from Chiratae Ventures, amongst the earliest tech-focused venture capital firms in the Indian ecosystem.

Co-founded by Ashish Joshi, Vivek Raicha and Nithya Sudhir, Artium Academy offers music education using modern pedagogy combined with technology to deliver elevated learning and performing experience to learners.
“Our vision is to make music learning more relevant, participative, and engaging where a user can take the journey of a learner to a performer to a potential influencer with our music tech platform. We are building AI based assessment and prescription tools to aide efficient learning and performing, thereby offering qualitative pedagogy to the learners globally, stated Ashish Joshi, founder and CEO, Artium Academy.
“Chiratae’s Consumer Tech report talks about passion creators, and we see a significant opportunity in the passion, extracurricular learning space. We believe that performance arts for Indians living here and abroad is a significant addressable market which has no age limits as well. Artium’s depth of pedagogy combined with tech-first approach to build a scalable learning and performance platform stands out from other extracurricular horizontal platforms,” commented, Anoop N Menon, Principal and Consumer Tech-lead of Chiratae Ventures.
“This capital will help us accelerate our plans to develop new offerings and expand into newer markets, especially to the diaspora population outside of India. It will also allow us to invest in product and content led organic channels for learner acquisition,” stated, Vivek Raicha, co-founder, Artium Academy.

These courses are designed and certified by Sonu Nigam, KS Chithra, Shubha Mudgal, Aruna Sairam, Louis Banks, Gino Banks, Raju Singh and Aneesh Pradhan who’ve joined Artium as faculty heads for various courses.
