I always find it uncomfortable to wish new members in threads that might otherwise get derailed. So I am going to welcome new members here. Others may also use this thread.

First I welcome our most recent member - Gitapriya. A warm welcome to you.

Hello everybody!!!!!!!
Let me introduce myself first.....
I am a student of music and my quest since childhood has been music of a higher order......
Here i would like to say that i have been associated with Shri Akella Mallikarjuna Sharma(Akellagaru as we fondly call him) for the past five years........
Though i dare not say that i am his disciple,i can proudly say that i am learning under him, so people consider me as his disciple. Throughout my quest .....i wished i had an oppurtunity to meet him and learn for him,it took several years before i encountered him in one of his workshops. Contrary to his image and much to my surprise, i found him extremely nice and accommodating.Since then,every session of mine with him has been been so educative,thought provoking and motivating. And i must tell you that he is an extaordinary singer too and i have benefitted so much by his book on raga alaapana and swarakalpana.I always wish that i could come close to his renditions of ragas with all nuances which he produces exactly the way he plays on the violin.Its AMAZING and MINDBLOWING!!!!!!!!!!!!! The way he works is something that one cant imagine...........
I have also assisted him in one of his workshops(though in a very small way)too.......I have recently ventured into Talasprastara and am working on it..........and have found it extremely interesting though it is a complex and a vast subject........and i pray i will learn the subject as far as possible...........
Now,having known him quite well.........i have come to realise that he hasnt been able to put things across in English successfully which is quite normal........'cause most us may find it difficult at some stage or the other when it comes to explaining or interpreting things in a foriegn language.But as you might have seen for yourself, his knowledge as a violinist,vocalist,musicologist is amazing.Its is also a fact that he is the sole authority on Talaprasthara. My attempt here is only to tell you that it would be ideal if any of you can get associated with him personally so that you will get to see for yourselves,the treasure that he is and learning it directly would be better since the subject is vast and complex.(but very interesting).I am not too sure if reading the book will suffice in anyway, though it would mean a step forward. I have also been using the electronic tambura that he has designed for the past few years and since then i think it has redefined singing itself................
Hope many of you would avail the oppurtunity of listening to his demo at the Music Academy ,Chennai........
Having known him quite well, i consider myself extremely fortunate even to have met him.
and i wish those of you interested in meeting him all the best!!!!!!!!!
Just that i wanted to share my experiences with you all..........which include plenty of fruitful arguements with him,with due respects to him........( there were days when i dreaded even meeting him :)
I take every oppurtunity to argue with him which points out to the fact that he is extremely accommodating..........To me he is the best teacher ever!!!!!!!!! Its a pleasure to see how he trains his disciples especially the Violinists.........
Thank you all an All the Best!!!!!!!!!!

Dear all,

I have been here from some time.. I ardent listener of carnatic music ( and also hindustani but limited to vocal and only particular musicians like Bhimsen Joshi ji etc). I have learned classical vocal for about 4 years under the able guidance of Late Sri VVL Narasimha Rao, violinist and music college lecturer. I have learnt this only to become a good and soulful listener of CM.

I am cursing myself to have missed this forum for this long.. I have been following the discussions here and find them highly knowledgeable and informative.

I wish this forum goes on forever. I thank you all for having created such a great forum.

Regards,

Sarma
