Sitar:
A plucked stringed instrument used mainly in Hindustani music and Indian classical music. The instrument is believed to have been derived from the Vena, an ancient Indian instrument. Besides learning how the instrument is held and plucked the student will learn how to tune, play and read notes, rhythms, songs and the basics of music.

My son had a great first lesson with Karen and is excited to learn to tune his hammered dulcimer and begin playing. Karen has a natural gift as a teacher and great demeanor. Our family is looking forward to working with her in the future.

After taking lessons in Varanasi with Aarvind Singh and in Kolkatta with Mita Nag, I have played sitar for 7 years in a variety of professional settings. I have recorded with a variety of bands and perform regularly with yoga classes around Austin. I know some traditional ragas and some western fusion approaches

Michael is doing a great job getting me started on my piano journey. The exercises and drills he is teaching me have helped me feel comfortable at the keyboard. I've even learned a song already, after just 2 lessons!

Highly recommended.

My 8 year old daughter took piano lessons from Michael and she really enjoyed learning the basics in fun ways. He was VERY patient and able to meet her where she was at, but still knew how to challenge her. I would recommend Michael to any beginner level piano player!

Really good teacher. I had never played piano before and Michael was great at instantly giving me things to work on and gave off the impression that lessons were tailored to what I was interested in and the direction I personally wanted to go with the piano. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone else looking for a good instructor in piano or any other musical instrument he works with.
