"I consider myself to be what you'd call a 'hardcase newbie'. Prior to joining Mr. Gupta's classes, I had tried a lot of sessions where and there to get the ball rolling. I'd diligently work on whatever I'd come across. But unfortunately, I'd get nowhere. And then I came across him in December of 2019, and that is when my journey in guitar truly began in true sense. When you come to Shovik sir's classes, you don't just learn the instrument. He teaches you more. Essentially, he makes you sink into the art of philosophy of music. He doesn't want none of his students to just be okay with playing the instrument. No, he wants you to ingrain every little detail in your bones. There is a lot that I could say but unless you decide to come to try out the classes first handedly, you'd only be listening to somebody else's experience. And that could only tell so much about all that you could potentially unravel in your journey over here. Joining his classes has made me a better human being in the process. The instrument has helped me deal with my mental health issues. The environment over here pushes you to be a better version of yourself. But like I said, you'd not know untill you try. So try. First handedly. Come down for a class whenever time serves you and it'd never be a waste of your time. "

"For building up a strong base of music he is the best teacher you can get. The in-depth teaching of how and why instead of just superficial teaching. "

"The one i learn guitar from really teaches very well and he also improvises each student individually. Gives strong emphasis on basic theory and makes us practice. Then comes to process and introduction. The thing i like most is his emphasization on basics. Because the more i understand the basics the better i can practice. He is also very motivational and ideal as a teacher. He teaches how to be professional and make new improvisation on our owns. He teaches different kind of playing than the way all play. Shares new equipments for practice which is very helpful. In the current situation he is taking classes. He throws many new ideas and also helps to compose music on our own. He himself is a great guitarist. And while he plays he also presents his skills in such a way that inspires us a lot. "

"I have been a self taught guitarist and was not confident in what I was doing. The best thing that happened when I enrolled myself to learn the guitar was to request Shovik Sir to help me in learning the guitar thoroughly. In a couple of months, not only have I gained confidence, but it started making sense in what I was playing on the guitar. Shovik sir, is a Guru for music lovers and those who want to develop their knowledge in music. He has the right way of learning with proper guidance and professionalism. ability to structure lessons his in-depth knowledge and theory of music. He gave me the confidence and knowledge I needed to enjoy what i was doing for my personal needs and goals it has surpassed my expectations. Shovik Sir is really amazing person and skilled guitar teacher I ever found. With his way of guitar lesson, he has helped me to be a good musician. Thank you Shovik Sir. God bless. "

Only for intermediate and advanced players but not for beginners, since lots of vital physical aspects like finger alignments, hand positions and most importantly , the organic inspiration to listen to your guru play in front of you can never be achieved online
