Professional Sitarist with 30+ years of experience gives private lessons online/in Austin, Texas

Methodology

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.

Background

Sitarist Indrajit Banerjee is one of the leading exponents of the Maihar Gharana. He was born in a musical family, including his guru, Pandit Kartick Kumar (Sitar), Pandit Barun Kumar Pal (Hamsa Veena), Niladri Kumar (Sitar), Partho Das (Sitar), Aparna Roy (Surbahar). Later on, he took intensive training from his uncle, Pandit Kartick Kumar, a senior disciple of Pandit Ravi Shankar. All of this training developed a strong foundation for Indrajit’s music, and creative individuality. Indrajit has a special touch on Sitar combined with technical virtuosity and sensitivity. He is an A grade artist of All India Radio and National Television, Panel Artist for Indian Council Of Cultural Relations, has served as Judge for A.I.R (Kolkata).
