SYLLABUS HIGHLIGHTS

Vineeth .Vinod

"When it comes to music especially Guitar- Aarabhy and Varun are two very passionate and grounded individuals, and I speak from experience when I say that they're able to instill the same passion into their students. As a student of music, I'd say I'm happy to be under their tutelage- I've picked up quite a bit from them and look forward to keep this going and make good progress! Of course- this is me, sharing MY thoughts. I'd suggest anyone reading this to visit and interact with them- have your own experience. :)"
