Kerala Culture Minister K C Joseph on 22 January 2015 announced setting up of the International Institute of Music in Kerala. It will be the first international institute in India that is dedicated to music.

A Trust headed by Sarod Maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan has been entrusted with the responsibility to set up the Institute. The government will provide only land and all other infrastructure facilities will be built by a trust managed by Khan's family.

Moreover, Kerala Government also identified the land for setting up the school in Thiruvananthapuram or Kochi or Kozhikode. Now, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan will decide one location out of these.

The school will be under the Kerala Sangeetha Nataka Akademi but would have a separate body to govern it. All kinds of music, musical instruments and musical systems will be taught at the Institute.
