In 1926, with a view to provide standardized music education and to maintain the high traditions of Indian music, an institution was established by the great efforts of Pandit Vishnu Narain Bhatkhande and Rai Uma Nath Bali at Lucknow. The Bathkhande University of Indian Music Society was registered under Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 in 1939. In 1948 at the time Birth Anniversary celebrations of Bhatkhande the name of the university was changed and it became known as Bhatkhande Sangit Vidyapith.The Vidyapith is an affiliating and examining body. It prescribes text books and confers certificates of Prathama, Madhyama, Visharad, Nipun and Acharya in all the three disciplines viz. Vocal, Instrumental and Dance.
It has eight years course and examinations are held every year in December. After two years of study and practice a certificate of Prathma is granted. One year after the Prathama a diploma of Madhyama is granted. After further two years of study and practice Visharad is granted. Three years after Visharad, Nipun is conferred. Nipun holders get the Sangit Acharya on at least two years research work and submission of a Thesis.The Marris College of Hindustani Music, Lucknow was established in July 1926. Originally, it was knows as the All India College of Hindustani Music and the name of Hindustani Music and the name of Sir William Marris was associated with it about six months later.Efforts for the establishment of the College date back to the year 1917 when the scheme of establishing a school of Indian Music at Lucknow was presented by Rai Uma nath bali to the 2nd All-India Music Conference held at Delhi under the president ship of late His Highness the Nawab of Rampur, who supported the scheme, but unfortunately it did not find the favour of late Pandit Vishnu Narain Bhatkhande and late Raja Nawab Ali Khan, the two veteran leaders of Music in Northern India, as they were then busy establishing an All-India Academy of Hindustani Music at Delhi, the capital city of India.
Efforts were made again by Rai Uma Nath Bali at the 3rd All-India Music Conference at Banaras in 1918 to gain the favour of the two leaders but in vain as they were even then hopeful of establishing the Central Academy of Music at Delhi. Not only could the Academy not be established at Delhi, the All-India Music Conference could also not be held till 1924, though efforts were made to hold the conference at Bhagalpur, Patna, Calcutta and Indore. Rai Uma Nath Bali extended the invitation to hold the fourth All-India Music Conference at Lucknow in 1919 at the Banaras Conference but it was not accepted and the invitation of Bhagalpur was accepted. Aggrieved and disappointed Rai Uma Nath Bali ventured to edit and publish a monthly magazine of Indian Music to popularize classical music and push through his scheme of establishing a school and started one in Hindi in 1919 by the name of Sangit Sudha which toiled for its existence for about a year with only 5 issues being published. This magazine also did not get the support of the two veteran leaders and its publication had to be stopped. Pandit Bhatkhande visited Rai Uma Nath Bali in November, 1922, and stayed for full one month with him. He revised his scheme and drew up the curriculum of the College of Music. He agreed with Rai Uma nath Bali’s suggestion to hold the 4th All-India Music Conference at Lucknow and to pass a resolution establishing a music college. He invited Rai Uma Nath Bali to attend a meeting to the standing committee of the All-India Music Conference at Delhi on December 18, 1922 and there secured the permission to hold the 4th All-India Music Conference at Lucknow. The 4th All-India Music conference was, therefore held at Lucknow in December 1924 with great pomp and grandeur in which the representatives of almost all the Gharanas of musicians of Northern India participated. The conference that the resolution establishing an All-India College of Music was passed and secondly Bhatkhandeji was able to get the agreed consent of the assembled musicians for standardizing his theory of ‘thats’ and notes used in the rags of Northern India.
