I tailor my teaching to the expertise of each student. For beginners, I teach systematically from the very basics, such as how to hold the instrument, how to sit, how to wear the mizrab, beginning exercises, how to listen to Indian classical music, etc.
For more advanced students the lessons are tailored to their interests in specific ragas and I work to build on the knowledge they have acquired.
