About

Violin Maestro Kumaresh is a limitless phenomenon whose musical career spanning 48 years has created a paradigm shift in the way the world looks at Indian Violin.
An out of box thinker and a philosopher, Kumaresh, fondly known as the Fiddling Monk , has redefined the teaching methods and repertoire for the students of violin.

A Child Prodigy who played his first concert when he was just 5 years, he was a sensation in the field of Carnatic music by completing his 100th stage performance even before he was 10. There are many firsts in his career, like being one of the youngest to perform a full-fledged concert on stage, one of the youngest artists to be honoured as "The State Artist" , by the Tamil Nadu Government, to getting an "A Top" Grade by the All India Radio, and the list goes on! He is also a proud recipient of "Sangeeta Natak Academy" award, the highest award given to an artist by the Government of India (GoI)

A must do to set the basics right!
This course proves that small small things can make big difference! Even though I started learning Violin sometime back, this course really helped me to identify what I wasn’t doing right and correct those easily. For the first time (I never had a hope I could), I started using my pinky fingers to play high notes, by continuously practicing the small exercises in this course. This is giving so much relief and motivates to learn more! I would highly recommend this to anyone who has learned Indian Violin before and wants to advance with Maestro, Kumaresh Sir! Thank you!

ABHYASA - Crashcourse Review by Shibi Maniyeri

“Respected Anna ,its indeed a pleasure to go through these wonderful lessons .At one point of time I was so addicted to the tunes I forgot the time and used to play till 12 30 in the night...it gave me an opening for the higher octave playing which is a very challenging thing on violin. I immensely thank you for giving the music field such a treasure of exploration. Regards Charu”

ABHYASA - Chaturthi Review by Charulatha Ramanujam

My Journey with Thritheeya
This course has helped me explore the different facets of playing the Violin. Though this is just a beginning ,it has introduced me to playing the violin on all the octaves. The course materials are curated specifically for playing the violin and getting the techniques right. The videos are Learner friendly with the cameras focusing on different dimensions viz. Bowing, fingering techniques and off course practice tips from Kumaresh Anna. I have personally experienced a good learning curve at the end of this Course(even though a bit steep one :) ) Thanks Kumaresh anna for Curating such a nice course content and the whole team behind the scenes for creating such a wonderful platform! Looking forward to Chathurthi :)”

A very challenging course!
This is definitely a challenging course and a great exercise for playing with the fingers and learning how to play any note with any finger. The courses were fun, the videos were very well made and the feedback was very actionable and helped me improve!”
