Being an Audio Engineer and Music Producer for 6 years I feel that every musician should know how to record themselves flawlessly. So I provide classes on Audio Engineering (from scratch to final mix and master) on these DAWs - Pro Tools, Cubase, and Reaper. Classes include using various plugins (like Wave plugins and Slate Digital plugins) for mixing and mastering. Contact me on +919874276765 for any inquiry.

Sayak Das

He has a great knowledge of guitar. I am felling lucky that i get a teacher like him.He solves any query you have about guitar or about music theory. Now,i can say that i am on the right path of learning guitar. Thank you urbanpro.


Arup Chakraborty

Since I was a child I wanted to play the guitar and now that dream is coming true for me. And I am fortunate that I found someone like Mr. Roy as my guitar tutor. He is the best.


Somnath Dey

He is a great teacher. Punctual, dedicated and always ready to help me out whenever it's necessary. I am glad I am taking classes from him.



He is my fourth guitar teacher and I don't think that I will need a fifth one! He is superb when explaining what to play and when to play. Recommended.



I wanted to learn to read and write music notations while learning the guitar. He has been teaching exactly what I needed, he gives me his lessons in staff notations and my sight reading ability is better than before.



I saw Mainak sir in a live concert and he totally blew my mind. I have been attending classes at his home now and my guitar playing is improving very quickly



Great musician, great teacher. I am appearing in the Grade 3 exam from Trinity College within next year.



I have been taking lessons from him for about a year now. And all along this time he has been a wonderful guide to me.



I am a student of class 10 and guitar was one of the things I have been fascinated by for years. MainakDa is my first guitar tutor and to be honest he is more than I could ever imagine. He is very talented musician and a nice person. I am happy that I decided to join his classes that made me a decent guitarist within 8-10 months.



Thanks for teaching and motivating me all along. You are one of the understanding and good guitar tutors I have met.



Very good mentor. Helpful and sincere to what he does. Always makes sure I know the proper way to read manuscript music.



I think I've found the best kind of guitar instructor I was looking for. From scratch to higher levels he can make me comprehend any kinds of techniques, theories & all. Highly recommendable as per my opinion.



I am a professional guitarist now, I play in a local band, and all I can say is be is that I owe him so much. I never had to take a lesson from someone else ever. very helpful guitar instructor.



He's been very helpful.



He is very talented musician and a superb teacher. He is very friendly and innovative. I've learnt a lot of effective techniques (both in solos & rhythm strumming) which cannot be found on any books or over the internet.



I used to learn guitar from a local amateur guitarist, but then I shifted to Mr. Roy and from the very beginning he was very helpful and he really can teach the fundamentals of guitar. He also helped me buying my first acoustic guitar and has guided me all along. 10 out of 10 stars.

Mina Roy

I hired him for my son & it turned out he was perfect for him. My son had a few guitar teachers before I recruited Mr. Roy & the only problem with them was communication & high professionalism. Mr. Roy then took the wheel & I am astonished to see the result. He emphasises on both theory & practical of guitar classes. He makes very clear what to play, where to play them, & most importantly why he should play them there. Mr. Roy is very punctual, disciplined, well-mannered & strict (when needed). I think he is exactly whom I was looking for as a guitar teacher.

Aatreyee Dutta

Apart from being a great musician, he really is the best guitar teacher I've met. His teaching methods are highly authentic, he focuses on the grammatical concept of playing acoustic/electric guitar as well as free-style. I can assure anyone that if he/she doesn't know anything about music at all will be able to understand & play his/her own music on guitar in a few months with his help. I would recommend him to anyone who's willing to really understand & play his/her guitar.
