Student Corner Testimonial

Mahalakshmi Iyer

Mahalakshmi says, “I feel very privileged to be a part of this class. Sir ensures we enjoy the process of learning as much as we gain knowledge. Even though I don’t have much background in Hindustani music (as am Carnatic trained) he will explain in simple terms so that I can relate and grasp as much as possible. He is appreciative of small wins when we succeed. Also he has so many life experiences and memories to share that makes the journey very enjoyable for all of us. Based on the students skill sets he will ensure he makes them feel comfortable. I thoroughly enjoy this class and it’s great to meet so many people across India who are coming together with Sir on this learning journey. Hopefully we can make a sincere effort that we all will carry some part of the ghazal learning legacy with us and spread happiness through the great learnings that we have from Talat Sir.
Living far away from India, music brings us together.”

Arun says, “Every Dark Cloud does have a silver lining! Amidst all gloom and doom of covid and the negative stories throughout the world, the 90+ mins spent every Saturday evening remains a treasure chest that keeps growing ! The opportunity to experience a true legend in the world of Ghazal gayaki has been truly amazing- every minute being one greater than the other! Talat sir, apart from being an exemplary musician comes across as a wonderful human being who deserves all and more of accolades for the respect he shows towards his craft as well as his seniors! Thanks a lot to Rithwik foundation for the commitment to the cause of spreading musical joys! Looking forward to learn lot more.”

Sauradeep Kar

Sauradeep says, “It was always my pleasant dream to learn the vocal style of playing the violin under the guidance of the violin maestro Vidushi Kala Ramnath. It’s entirely because of the RPFA that I could get an opportunity to get my dream fulfilled. Kala Ramnath Ma’am along with Dr. Sarada Das Sir teaches all of us individually with utmost care and focusses on bringing the correct intonation and clarity to play all vocal phrases on the violin. It’s really an honor to learn from such stalwarts of music and also to remain a part of such a wonderful batch where all my batchmates are themselves wonderful players of the instrument.”

Aprajita Sapra

Aprajita says, “Like yin and yang, everything has something positive and negative in it. The pandemic brought about a never dreamt of possibility into my life in the form of online ghazal classes with Shree Talat Aziz. Getting back to musical training in this way still feels surreal. It’s not just that he’s a legend (which is of course a pinch-me moment), his amazing patience and tremendous passion to impart this heritage to all who seek is overwhelming. I’m mostly challenging myself to be worthy of this knowledge and consider it my greatest fortune to have got this opportunity. Thank you, Talat Sir for your patience, time and positive energy. The classes with you are inspirational. I can’t thank you enough for this opportunity. Thank you so much RFPA for making this possible. The technology and coordination are seamless, making the learning process an amazing experience.”
