Overview

I belong to a HINDUSTANI musical family, Well-versed in Kirana Gharana and Gwalior Gharana Vocal and Instrumental Music, Also inspired by tough music style (Patiala Gharana) and learning from father and Guruji Pandit S. Ballesh Sahab and I have been trained in HINDUSTANI VOCALS for 25 years and have an experience of teaching for more than 15 years in Chennai city Around.

Son and Disciple of Hindustani Vocalist and Shehnai Maestro Pandit S. Ballesh,I am the General Secretary of Tansen Academy of Music Chennai (R) (Tam Institute). I have done my Sangit Alankar from Akhila Bharatha Gandharava Mahavidyalaya and has finished my Vidwath Anthim from Karnataka State Govt Music Exam and B. Music and M.

I started my initial Hindustani Classical Music training from my grandfather Pandit Sanna Bharamanna at the age of 7 years, learning Hindustani vocal Kirana gharana from the Late Pandit Dr. DP. Hiremath of M.K Hubli for nearly 10yrs.
I was one of the early disciples of Pandit M. Venkatesh Kumar of Dharwad (Gwalior-Kirana Gharana Style ), Later, I learnt Patiala Gharana Khayal Gayaki from my father Pandit S. Ballesh. Currently I am guru of nearly 150 students in chennai teaching Hindustani music. I learnt the nuances of Tabla from Table Nawaz Ustad Nazim Hussain, son of Bharat Ratna Ustad Bismillah Khan.

Sarath kumar T attended Hindustani Music

"I am very glad to share few words about my future prakash sir. He is the one who plays a vital role in moulding a student's voice to his/her best. His talent in Hindustani music is just unbelievable. He is a knowledgeable & fabulous teacher at the same time a very good human being, down to earth and very affectionate to students. His patience level while teaching is always adorable. I am really blessed to learn music from such a talented and great human being. I would like to be associated with tansen academy for so many years.. I would also want to add few points about shiva Sir. Both shiva Sir and prakash sir wanted their students to achieve big in their life and their efforts is just mind-boggling.. Both of them are very passionated towards music and the time which they are investing for the students development can't be just be explained in words. One can really feel that once they become a student of Tansen academy. This is the best music academy in Chennai and I strongly recommend music lovers to choose tansen academy to attain their goal in music. Thank you "

Yogesh attended Hindustani Music

"I am glad to share few words about my Guruji Prakash Ballesh sir. A guru plays the most important role in their students lives to mould his / her voice , to bring out the student's capability, to give a positive support throughout. .I feel blessed and fortunate to have Legendry Pandit Shri Prakash Guruji as my guru who has not only been a great teacher, He is renowned great Hindustani Classical singer and Great Musician. Beyond the objective of teaching music, he is a good human being, down to earth very kind and affectionate to students. He is one of the best music teacher in chennai. An Outstanding talented person we could never see. He is master in playing many instruments. We have been given ample time to talk to him and learn more. Apart from singing classes he teaches me harmonium, gives tips on how to improve voice. He is best voice culture expert. Teacher isn't a person who teaches us , but is one who leads us to the path of light. A person who is stuck in the sea of music,with no place to go can approach a teacher like Prakash sir who can take us to the land of fame and glory,an Overall all-rounder like him should be in the life of all students who pursue music as their carrier. I am vivid enough to state this tansen academy is the best place to learn Hindustani music in Chennai. No words are sufficient to express the unconditional love and support I have received from Prakash ji and I wish to learn more music under his guidance. Thank you sir. "
