It depends how Ambitious you are n Your Desire to Reach Wth Sitar !? If you take it as just past - time matter( or like old - school people as "marriage qualifications as Girls/Parents feel) for them learning casually frm Socalled Music School or from any Sitar Trainer wth 1Hour of Practice n 2yrs of Time Can Reach to Your Goal!..But if you Love d Instrument n Like to Live wth wth a Reputation..Then Needs a Sincere (!?) Gd Experienced Guru n to learn wth Him wth Your Dedications Efforts ( in terms of 5yrs to 7 hours Daily for 6 to 7 Years, to get Successes), Also Needs to Listen to Renowned Sitarist -Live n Records. BUT IF Your Sky is d Limit n Your Thirsts to Be d One n Only ...You Must Choose/Earn a Topmost Composer Maestro Sitarist-Musician wth Versatilities aft Learning 3 to 4 yrs of Gd Foundation - Training frm an Experienced Sitarist n a Tabalist too to make You Ready to Coping up fast n Perfectly frm Your Mentor /Guru, wth d Dedications n Efforts of 12 to 15hrs of Daily Reaz/Practices like Meditations n 6 to 7 Years ...and then Own Research Wrks n Listen to all Maestros including Top Vocalists n Instrumentalists Live Concerts n Records to Enrich Your Soul Ideas for making you An Unique Grt Maestro!!? Think 100 then only Might Reach 80 or 90 !!? BestWishes God Bless.

Depends On Your Inborn Coping up Capacities, How much time Dedication You Can Devote, In Wch Leven You W'd like to Reach and How much Your Mentor/Guru Experienced Knowledgeable- Teaching wth Scientific Method Both In Practicals n Theories - histories wth Sincerities !! But Minimum time @ 1.5 to 20hrs a Day to @4hrs is very Gd for Hobby Standard to Medium Standerd; To be a Gd Professional Sitarist One Need to Practice @ 8hrs to 15hrs a Day!! BestWishes for Your Muzikal Journey. TOI TOi toi.
