Hello everyone, myself Monalisa Banerji,someone who is passionate about taking you along on the path of music – the most subtle form of artistic expression. I am a trained Hindustani Vocal Classical musician with a Sangeet Prabhakar degree from the prestigious Prayag Sangeet Samity, Allahabad. Having learnt the art from Sri Prabir Kumar Dutta of Kirana gharana, I am well versed in the classical & semi-classical forms like khayal and bhajans. I love to teach music and humbly pass on the basics as well as the finer nuances of the sur, taal and laya to my students.I also have completed my courses in Bhav Sangeet from Prayag Sangeet Samity, Allahabad and Sangeet Bivakar from Bangiya Sangeet Parishad,West Bengal. I have performed on stages like in SPICMACAY,Pilani and many others and have several awards to my credit .
The duration of a course will also depend on my initial assessment of the capacity of a student that may vary with age, maturity level or an innate ability to pick-up music.
This unique experience of these classes finds its roots in Guru-Shishya Parampara,which is the only way to learn Indian Music.These classes are designed not only for the purpose of acquiring knowledge only ,but specially to help one become a performer of Indian Music.If your basics are correct you can achieve your greatest goal.
