We recently visited the International Music Centre with a group of students and all were impressed by the music demonstration and the kindness extended by the center in general.

Tucked away in the winding streets of Bengali Tola near Dashashwamedh Road, the International Music Centre Ashram is run by a family of musicians and is a well-known cultural centre in the city of Kashi. Is a place you must visit with prior appointment

This was a very nice experience. I don't know enough about classical Indian music to give any sort of real review. The building is around 500 years old and the setting is perfect for sitar, tabla and vocals! Plan to return on my next trip there.
