KIND WORDS FROM OUR STUDENTS...  :)

"This short course reminded us how versatile guruji’s knowledge is. Not only did we learn the scales and their names in Western and South Indian music, but the compositions he carefully selected from his own compositions and his gurus’, we could see the different styles of music while using the same scale. Having a fellow student who played different instrument than sitar was a new experience for me."

"Summer School has given students a fantastic opportunity to really absorb and engage with something that they love, something that is very much part of their soul. Dance has fantastic health benefits, from a physical and also a mental health and well-being perspective. There couldn't be a more apt time for people to be doing what makes them sane and what makes them happy in this quarantine world."

"The creativeness that you guys are coming out with to help your students, like they can practice in their square yard and do what they need to do is fantastic. Normally we are all practising together and we get to feel Guruji's groove. Being able to get that across online, from the student's point of view, to come from nothing and that emptiness to having that for our mental health and having that relationship of 'you can improve' is fantastic."
