My Music

Music is what I'd rather be doing.. Music fills in, a big part of my life, in a big way. I've always been fond of anything to do with music, be it listening, singing my favourite songs, or playing my guitar.

My parents were my initiators to music, as they enrolled me for Carnatic Vocal classes. I did not particularly love all the 'structured' practice I had to go through as part of the training, but I am thankful I practised. Today, if I were not able to sing, I'd lose it.. The vocal coaching, under many gurus, helped me train my voice and also exposed me to the rich heritage of Indian Classical Music and culture.

Soon, I started singing in my church and school choirs under some of the city's finest choir conductors. You learn well from good teachers; and I learnt a lot, fast, from my first guitar teacher, who made it so easy for me to pick up the basics of guitar playing. From that point on I knew there was no way music could be just something I do in my free time. For formal training in Western Classical Music, I enrolled in The Bangalore School of Music.

Somewhere along the line, I started writing songs and dabbling in amateur recording. I was lucky to find a set of like minded friends, a few years back, and together we formed an a'capella group, THIS (Thanking Him in Song). We did a lot of music; concerts, events and album recordings, some of which are listed under the Concerts and Albums tabs to your right.
