I offer singing lessons for children and adults of all ages.
I teach from my songbook, which takes its inspiration primarily from Carnatic music. With these songs as vehicles, we explore elements of musicianship and expression.
My purpose is simple and broad-
to encourage singing that is sincere and skilled.
I have a decade of experience teaching individuals and groups, and I've conducted singing workshops at the Asian Art Museum (SF), Stanford Jazz Workshop, Freight & Salvage, and more, as well as having frequently guest-lectured on carnatic music for courses at UC Berkeley - Music Theory, Music of India, etc.
Lessons are at my studio and woodshed in Berkeley, very near BART. I have two lively, friendly dogs who usually want to listen.
