Workshops

Every year Chhandayan offers a series of workshops for the enhancement of studies of Indian music. These workshops are intensive in nature, including supervised practice time. They also cover many areas which are not always possible to be addressed in regular classroom situations. All of these workshops are intended for students of all levels and backgrounds. Students, who are studying with other teachers are also welcome to join.

Testimonials

Dear Guruji
The thing I wanted to share with you, and if you feel like sharing with your other students / disciples please do, is this :
Since my initiation into tabla I have not, to this extent yet, experienced such a feeling of brotherhood / kinship / love with my gurubhais. A lot of these revelations or feelings have come to me with your blessings and with your example of riyaz. The times when I feel most alive are the times after I’ve pushed myself in your physical presence or spiritual presence. I have come to believe from personal experience that riyaz ( the type of riyaz where you START pushing yourself when it feels impossible to go any further) offer glimpses into spiritual awakenings. I just wanted to share this e mail As a testament to brotherhood and discipline. Everyone in that room these past few days has the capacity for self and world transformation. Our path is clear. Thank you for lighting it up for us to see.
Much love.
