In this endeavor, the academy has roped in some eminent musicians into its advisory panel, like Dr. Mangalampalli Balamurali Krishna, Dr. Nookala Chinna Satyanarayana and Nedunuri Krishna Murthy. The academy organises and conducts various music festivals every year, and plans to soon organise these every month.

Every year, the prestigious awards of Sangeeta Vidyanidhi and Natya Vidyanidhi are conferred upon music and dancing legends.
