All our gurus are descendants of St. Thyagaraja – the most prolific of the historic Trinity of Carnatic music.
Based on the pedagogical methods handed down from the auspicious composer, the academy offers the spotless banner of classical values of yesteryear Carnatic legends like Patnam Subramanya Iyer, Poochi Srinivasa Iyengar, Ariyakudi Ramanuja Iyengar and Palghat K.V. Narayanaswamy imparted to Prakash via his guru Smt. Padma Veeraraghavan – a vocal and veena vidushi and exemplary mentor. The academy also incorporates modern instrument-specific innovations of visionaries like Mandolin U. Srinivas and other artists like U.P. Raju – Prakash’s first tutor.
While basing itself on the methods of Carnatic’s stalwart forefathers and foundational innovators, the academy understands that learning must be tailored and customized for 21st century students. The needs, cognitive development and pace of learning differs for adults and children, and the goals may be completely different.
Combining traditional roots with cutting-edge technology, the school provides a breakthrough for Carnatic music.
