Hey,

I'm located in downtown toronto and looking to take sitar lessons (ideally RS style).

I've already tried contacting the sitar school of toronto without any response.. a few times actually.

Anyone on here from toronto?

thanks

Irshad Khan is based in Toronto but he is Imdadkhani style, so not exactly what you are looking for, unless you are willing to consider that style/gharana. Maybe ask the folks at Kala Kendar if they have any recommendations, too:

Here's an old thread on the subject:

And another alternative, though I know nothing about it:

There are a couple of Toronto sitar teachers advertising on kijiji.ca and craigslist.com. Anwar from the Toronto Sitar School is a super guy and is most likely on the road and will probably get back to you soon enough. He is also active on facebook. Anwar is from the Imdadkhani school though.

You can check..

The person who runs this school was learning earlier with my teacher Ustaad Shujaat Khan in New Delhi until a few years ago he relocated at Toronto.

Best of luck

I teach and perform sitar in toronto. Anyone interested may visit my website at christopherhalesitar.com I've been a student of sitar since 1985 when I first began studying in India. I currently study with my guru, Partha Chatterjee, who plays in the style of his guru Nikhil Banerjee.

I love Partha Chatterjee.
He is an amazing teacher.
I take lessons from him when he comes to California.
I am sad I wont be able to get to San Francisco while he is here this time.
