Testimonials

I have had the pleasure of frequently providing Tabla saath to Hemant and his students for over a decade. Accompanying them is particularly joyful for me because of their extraordinary technical & artistic abilities, the diversity of taals they perform in, and the meticulous attention they pay to Laya and Taal. I wish him great luck.

It was my pleasure listening to all your students. They all were thoroughly prepared. This is the first time in last so many years in North America that I could ask all the questions. Otherwise there are always so many reasons by the teachers supporting their student's unprepared presentations. I enjoyed the exams. I would definitely like to come again in future.
Mrs. Rupali Vatve, Toronto, Canada
This is to express my sincere appreciation of your efforts to train youngsters in the art of Hindustani Classical Music and thereby promote it in U.S.A. As far as my knowledge goes, none other in New Jersey has been able to achieve this to the extend you have done it. Kudos to you indeed. Though I have dedicated myself to this art right from the age of 15.
