Instructor Biography

Sree Akaveeti, Music Trainer

Hi Everyone,

I am basically an IT Professional but in my free time and as a hobby, I had chosen Music as my destination. I have been teaching kids and students for more than 6 years by now both online as well as private classes. I love teaching music as I enjoy sharing the knowledge to the interested ones. And as music is my life, I dedicate most of the time in teaching & practicing music.

Not only Carnatic music but I also teach devotional songs & prayers for kids. My other hobbies include painting, singing movie songs, hanging out with friends etc.
