Teaching Philosophy

Tania wants to convey quality education in music through lucid approaches while having a great deal of fun. She believes that music is like “Sadhana” (In Sanskrit, disciplined and dedicated practice) and you have to adore it, love it, appreciate it from the depth .She can assure that the wonderful journey through “Raagas” and “Taans” would be a memorable enjoyment and rewarding experience. She thinks that it’s very important to have the basics right and if that happens, the students can master any songs and notations. Tania is very patient, caring and encouraging. She tries to understand the student’s strengths and weaknesses, and plans the lessons accordingly. She has taught students from age of 5 to 55 and is comfortable with every stage of teaching. She cannot agree more that “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination…”(Plato).
