She shares appropriate resources, including notes and videos for practice. Timings and frequency of classes are also flexible and can easily fit in your schedule. Overall, I would say that I enjoy learning from her. "

Our heartiest congratulations to Alkesh Varshney!

Q. When and how did you start working as a Tutor?

I started teaching in 1996 when I was learning music for my Visharad degree in vocal music. I used to assist my guru in conducting classes for her music centre. Noticing my interest in teaching, she asked me to teach her students. In 2003 I joined R.C.A. girls degree college and started teaching vocal music to undergraduate students. This was the start of my journey as a music trainer.

Q. What skills are required to become a Music Tutor?

To become a music teacher, one needs to understand the fundamentals of music and have the patience to make sure the students understand the core lessons.

A teacher should have the ability to notice and pinpoint the students' mistakes and effectively communicate them to correct them.

Specifically, as a vocal music trainer, they must understand the student's natural singing scale and vocal. They must not force students to sing in the trainer's scale.

Q. What, according to you, helps you stand out from other Music Tutors on

My approach to teaching is very student-centric. I give particular focus to fundamentals to build a strong base for the students.

Q. How did you come across

I wanted to expand my teaching outside of my hometown. I found online education to be the best option for that. I found a few online platforms. UrbanPro stood out to me because of it's the streamlined onboarding process.

Q. What was the turning point in your career?

Finding my guru who strengthened my knowledge of music fundamentals and helped me understand music rather than just knowing it.

Q. How has helped you so far as a Tutor?

I used to teach students from my hometown. UrbanPro helped me reach students without the physical distance being a barrier. It's only because of UrbanPro that I even have a student from the U.K. It proved to be especially useful during this time of the pandemic.

Q. What percentage of your work comes from

Around 50 percent of my work comes from UrbanPro.
