A musician who just loves to sing.

I have been singing since I was 3 years old. I was fortunate enough to receive formal music training since I was 5 years of age. I enjoyed singing and performing at various platforms like TV shows, All India Radio etc. I won the State Level Award conducted by Uttar Pradesh Sangeet Natak Academy and National Scholarship conferred by CCRT, New Delhi and many other. I passed Visharad – 1st Division from Bhatkhande Sangeet Natak Academy, India.

I continue to perform and research further in music. At the same time, I even teach music at Isha Home School, Coimbatore.
