"Piyush as a Kathak teacher is a perfect blend of traditional and modern sensibilities. He handles students of varied age groups from 7+ to 50+ with utmost care and ease. He is very supportive and well aware of his students weaknesses and strengths and encourages them to overcome their fears and inhibitions with regular guidance and workshops. His dedication, passion and love for Indian classical art is captivating and infectious. His studio in Goregaon is a go to place for students and parents who are serious and passionate about learning any classical dance form or music. He also organises regular baithaks there for students and general public as well to promote and create awareness about classical art forms. "

"I rejoined kathak classes after 5 years. Found about sir's classes and attended a trial class. I was like riding a bicycle. Somethings one never forgets and kathak is one of those things. Sir is the most supportive teacher and always encourages. His dedication towards the art form and teaching methods ,are the whole reason that despite being busy with work I take out time for this every Sunday. "

"The best thing which i like about his work is his choreography for the annual performance we had this year. Every class there is something to look forward to in terms of learning something new. Being a highly trained guru helps us in understanding the art form better. "

For any singing which is to be done on a professional level, Hindustani classical is a must to learn because it not only develops your musicality but also develops your other senses and your vocal cords, your voice quality, your throw of voice and your breath control. I hope this helps. Thanks
