If you're on the lookout for a DJ/Production course, I would recommend FTR hands down. The faculty is well connected to the industry and that is a big plus for newbies. You also get to practice on industry standard equipment so you're familiar with actual club gear. Definitely one of the top music schools in India. Oh, and the ambiance just tops it off! No other place has a view like that!
