"An year back I was desperate to find a Hindustani teacher in Chennai.I have searched for many gurus online and also in person, but I was not satisfied. Fortunately,A friend of mine gave me Ballesh sir phone num and asked me to go learn from him.The moment I saw ballesh sir I knew he is the guru I am looking for.He is the finest,knowledgeable and most committed teachers I have ever seen in my life.His energy in the class just infectious.The mood he brings to the class is beyond words.Above all,he is most selfless and loving teacher.The way he takes a class is just amazing .Never a single moment in a 3 hr class I Feel bored listening and singing.I consider his class as a Hindustani classical concert because the way he renders and improvises in class is similar to Ustad Rashid khan saab performing in a concert.More than a teacher he is a true performer.Performance is one aspect I always look for in a teacher because with out performing one cant be a complete artist.I am fortunate to have found a teacher like him.I am very much thankful and always be thankful for the profound knowledge he is imparting in me .With out a passionate guru like I will reach no where as a musician.
