Overview

Have taught Carnatic classical music ,both vocal and Veena to a handful of students in Oman during a stint of 6 years in Muscat as well as in Chennai and Bangalore .
Play and teach in the Tanjore style which is noted for the Bhava as well as being closest to vocal rendering. I have learnt for over 10 years from a very reputed teacher in Chennai.

Have won prizes in Music competitions at various stages and now looking forward to propagate the art of Veena playing in the younger generation. Can be a very dedicated and interesting teacher to the really passionate-to-learn student. Would love to start with various playing techniques and exercises for the beginners. can handle teaching for higher levels also. I have had students aged between 5 and 70 in the past .Have the privilege of tutelage under a leading Guru in the Muthuswamy Deekshithar lineage for 10 years and also under a leading artist from the Lalgudi school for sometime. (both Tanjore style of playing ).

I have completed Higher Grade (equivalent to Senior Grade)
in Instrumental music in Veena.

"I have been learning veena online from Sujatha mami for more than 6 months and it has been a wonderful learning experience. She is a very patient teacher and encourages you to develop your own style of playing by demonstrating multiple ways of playing Veena to achieve the same sound effect. I would definitely recommend online lessons from mami for anyone who has a basic knowledge of how to play a Veena and in person classes for absolute beginners. "

"I checked out her demo lesson and got hooked. She has been very regular (even when I had to miss class on my engagements, she figured out a slot in her busy schedule to make up that class). Her lessons are very interactive, I don't feel like I am doing it remotely. And most important of all, she is an excellent and patient teacher. "

"My husband and I study with Ma'am. And wish our kids in the future study under her. She is so amazing I wish she lives 120 years. We rarely find such prideless teachers. She is so attentive and so expert in Karnatic vocals that will notice a slight mistake and won't allow to skip it not correcting it. Not only that, she is very friendly and doesn't laugh at a student if student does silly mistakes on the contrary inspires me saying that song is actually difficult that many people do mistake here. When we are sick she is adjustable with timings. We are from the USA and find her as the best teacher in the world. Thank you so much. "

Yes I do handle online classes... Although you have basic understanding there are specific Gamaka Phrases in the Sangathis of Songs in Carnatic which are unique to every Ragam and have to be practiced well to attain a certain level of excellence in playing that number.
