Being a passionate lover and student of music, I love to teach people how to explore themselves and their inherent musicality. I am comfortable with providing tuition individually as well as in groups. I thoroughly enjoy working with children and young people, like myself - be it an absolute beginner, or a more advanced musician.
I would be comfortable in working on any genre of music. The methodology of teaching would involve generating interest in the lessons to ensure sustained and correct individual practice - starting with the basics and gradually building on them, as permitted by the student's response rate.I
I have never had "students" in the conventional sense of the word, but I have had the opportunity to work with several students of my former music teacher wherein I have taught them pieces as well as technical work in preparation for ABRSM examinations (Grade 5 and below). I have also taught several of my friends to play musical instruments, and though they did not appear for formal examinations, most of them find it comfortable to perform for audiences.
I have completed Grade 6 in violin and Grade 5 in theory of music under the ABRSM, passing with distinction in every examination appeared for along with Indian Classical singing till 2nd year, passing with distinction in every exam under Pracheen Kala Kendra, Chandigarh.
I used to perform in the Kolkata Music Academy Chamber Orchestra, as a violinist and violist. I have played at events such as the opening ceremony of the annual Calcutta Book Fair, the opening ceremony for the Kolkata International Film Festival and so on, along with performances and recordings on national television and the All India Radio with the said orchestra. In 2015, I participated and placed first in the Edelweiss Festival in 2015 organised by the Austrian Embassy in India in the solo instrumental music category.
Although my main instruments are the violin and viola, I also play several other instruments like guitar, ukulele and mandolin to name a few.
I currently study Electronics with Music at the University of Glasgow, and train on the violin under Ms Gabi Maas. My main areas of focus are the Baroque and Classical eras.
I am a part of the Kelvin Ensemble as violist and the St Vincent’s Baroque Players as violinist and violist. I have also successfully applied and auditioned for the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland (viola) and the Universities of Scotland Symphony Orchestra (violin).
