Music has always been a lifelong passion. Music has fascinated me in the numerous ways it links with our life – its relaxing and therapeutic to the mind, songs associated with festivals and occasions, the seven notes bringing different styles and integrates people beyond boundaries.
I was more attracted to the rich melody of Carnatic ragas that evokes various emotions. The beautiful techniques in singing and voice culture give great scope for imagination and presentation. This motivated me to learn the art in depth and teach others.
In Bristol I sang for the Bharathanatyam Dance recital of Mathangi Ramakrishnan at SGAP Mela in 2004.
I performed a vocal concert and a veena recital at the Bath Music Festival in 2004 held in Theatre Royal.
I have also participated in the Thyagaraja Aradhana held at the Balaji Temple in Birmingham at 2008.
I volunteered as a voluntary play worker and organized cross cultural activities including music, fashion, cooking and dance at Brislington Neighbourhood Center in 2008 and 2009.
I teach Carnatic Vocal & Instrumental Veena for all age groups from kids to adults from Basics to Advanced Lessons. I also teach small devotional songs, Bhajans and melodic Indian classics.
I teach Tamil Music - Thevaram & Thiruppugazh for those interested to learn the rich cultural poetry of Ancient Tamils.
I'm keen in doing classes and workshops for Indian Traditional Group Dance for kids and young adults who are interested in thematic presentations for cultural events or shows.
