'By nature, I would call myself a person with a musical bent of mind. I spent many lovely years in the presence of my grandmother and uncleswho are musically inclined and I suppose my association with these people has given me something that I believe is the greatest tool in the world of Music Faith!'
And it was by Faith alone that I took this leap into the world of Music. I completed myBachelors in Music from Madras University andhave been a trainer, teacher and mentor in this field for over a decade equipping around 6000 students. Along the way I also trained myself and completed four grades of plectrum guitar from Trinity College, London.
My greatest learning in this journey as a musician would be that I am under the tutelage of Smt.Sukanya Chandru, the daughter and disciple of DK Jayaraman. Journey as a musician and trainer, has been a delightful saga helping my students discover the true essence of music. Empowering them to their potential and contributing to the consciousness as a whole towhat I love. On a personal note, this journey of every student is a self-discovery and an opportunity to connect to Divine.
My teaching methodology has been my strength throughout this journey. I strongly believe that the attributes of a beautiful voice is something that is not part of oneself right from the time we are born but that it develops with practice and training, and that's where my ideology of "Anybody can sing" comes in picture. I am very glad to say that in my institute, music is fine tuned to suit one's need while maintaining the ethics and the philosophy of Indian Carnatic Music.
It is a blessing and my pleasure to have founded Madhu Maalika and be a part of it as a Musician and Trainer. I am very happy to beavailable to help, guide and assist an individual for his/her journey in Music.
The journey is ongoing and I currently pursue Masters in Music from Madras University and equipping myself to be a doctorate in the field of Music.
