Shanti Music Productions – History and Development,
Shanti Music was founded in Boston 1987 as Shanti Music Productions Inc. by Helen Savari and Fritz Renold. Upon their move to Switzerland in 1990, they registered Shanti Music Productions Renold & Co. in Olten, Switzerland.
The company’s field of work encompasses the following:
- music production,
- composition and music arrangement,
- event productions,
- music education.
The company has published over 500 original musical works over the past 25 years. These are now available as scores and parts for sale and leasing. Several of the productions are released in CD and SACD formats under Shanti Records and Sony Music. Recent productions will be soon released in CD and DVD formats under the Shanti Records label.
Shanti Music is the parent of the unique educational system ‘Bandstand Learning with Role Models™’ which had led to the founding of Jazzaar Festival in Aarau since 1998. In 2012 the company launched the Music Holidays program for hobby musicians. Meanwhile, the Jazzaar College For Contemporary Music – JC4CM, a private music college for international music students based on their unique ‘learning on the bandstand’ concept coupled with an e-Learning platform is the planning.
Shanti Music is also the subsidy for the newly founded Paul Gilmor Design company that branches into web design and online marketing for musicians and artists.
