Totally enjoyed and had a great time doing the course. The simple melody with just Sa Pa gave so much satisfaction of playing the violin. Indeed blessed to have got the opportunity to learn from a great great Vidwan maestro from a foundation level. Thank you.
Its great to have proper structure to learning the instrument directly from a Master.
This is the best course to start with as a beginner.
It was a wonderful experience learning the Carnatic Violin from the maestro himself. The kind of attention to detail that has been given in the course is great and very easy to understand and we also get to interact with sir to understand better and clear all our queries on a regular basis. He gives us detailed feedback after every lesson which is very helpful.
