a slight tangent....do any players of this calibre come to the UK? I'm sure they must do but I've never heard of it and wouldn't know where to look.

So excited.. I just signed up for 4 lessons with him while he's in town.... And yes.. they are one on one lessons. But I have to admit for some reason I'm a little nervous sitting in front of the man himself!!

Well, according to USP's website he has a concert in New York sometime next month...I have to believe that soul1newyorkcity has his lessons then, unless he has a time machine 8)

Good for you! I do not know him personally, but looks like he is an earnest and down-to-earth teacher. Let us know of your experience afterwards. But, I am a little skeptic about the usefulness of such short term tuitions, unless you have specific questions to ask. So my opinion would be: do your homework, do not be dazzled by the aura and know what you want.

I will definatly keep you posted on my experience...

To my understanding he is actually in NYC about 4times a year and does 3-7 day retreats... I'm sure whatever I learn will be very useful in my long term goals as a sitarist. Even if I don't learn much because of the short time span... his influence will last a lifetime and the experience to be working one on one with such an amazing musician is priceless!

I completely disagree with the thought that these short sessions are of no use.
I have taken small groups of lessons with some really great teachers and learned a great deal.
I have had lessons with Partha Chatterjee, Rajeev Taranath, and Partho Sarathy.
Each time I learned something new and different.
I gained from another perspective.
My teacher suggested all of these sessions so I could gain from the experience that these teachers provide.

I do believe that to excel in sitar you HAVE to have a regular lesson schedule with a good teacher.
But the occasional master class never hurt anyone.
It is a standard in all Classical forms.
