The SPAARK Launched By Mizmaar
Mizmaar’s guitarist Kashan Admani, drummer Alfred D’mello and renowned guitar instructor Jeremy Kenneth Vas’ latest venture The SPAARK (School of Performing Arts And Recording Karachi) was recently officially launched with an intimate gig at the Base Rock Café, Karachi. Over a 100 guests showed up to watch the young but very talented students of The SPAARK perform for the very first time.
The SPAARK students performed a live set of over an hour, with songs ranging from the 80’s, a few current pop, rock and some Pakistani songs. Their track list included covers of songs such as Girl On Fire (Alicia Keys), Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana) and Nishaan (Noorie). Even though the students were mostly teenagers who had no prior experience in live performances, guests were thoroughly entertained by their raw talent and towards the end of the show, everyone went up to congratulate them for their brilliant performance.
Located in Karachi, The SPAARK teaches guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums, recording, production and combines weekly private music instruction and group band rehearsals to prepare students to take the studio and stage in front of producers and live audiences in an authentic concert setting. The school, located at M 1, Plot 29 C, 6th Commercial Street, Bader Commercial, DHA, Phase 5, Karachi, is now officially open for students to sign up via facebook: www.facebook.com/thespaarkofficial – timings at 3 PM to 7 PM.
At The SPAARK, instructors believe the best way to learn music is to play music. They take students from the lesson room to the stage, developing both their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels.
Commenting about the idea behind The SPAARK, and future plans of the school, Kashan Admani says, “SPAARK is not a commercial venture but a labor of love to promote music and impart music education at a level never done before in Pakistan. Our approach to teaching music is practical where students actually get to learn how to play instruments in a real world situation like playing in a band or solo and performing live. The SPAARK faculty comprises of working, famous professional musicians, producers and engineers to ensure that people learn from music industry professionals and learn from their experiences”.
