I am an award winning professional musician and educator who has performed in more than 500 concerts. I play the mridangam which is a percussion instrument used in Indian classical music.

I learnt mridangam from Shri T.R. Dhandapany and the legendary Padma Vibhushan Sangeeta Kalanidhi Dr. Umayalpuram K. Sivaraman. I also trained in singing Hindustani Dhrupad classical music with the renowned Padma Shri Gundecha Brothers and Ustad Niloy Ahsan.

I teach music to students across the globe with ages ranging from 3 years to 65 years.

Please email me at if you are interested in a performance or in learning music.

  3. Glad to meet you here sir. I came across your blog while surfing the net for articles about Bhagavatar Sri Jon B Higgins.



  4. Dear Ram:

    I stumbled on your blog site while looking for today’s concerts. Hope to see/meet you in person on Sunday (14/10/2012) at the mini hall. I have had a very positive experience at the mini hall — the youngsters’ performances are wonderful.


  5. Dear Ram:

    I attended the concertand enjoyed it because I knew some of the ragas. I enjoyed your Thani as well. I could not wait longer after the end. Sure to meet you soon.


  6. Nice to know that you are “well employed” in music while earning a good position in a “regular” career. Wish there were more people like you who will not let their talent get submerged in the daily grind of life. Best wishes to you. May your tribe increase.
