Karthik is a wonderful guitar teacher. He is very patient and encouraging during lessons with our 11 year old Daughter - who really likes Karthik too. I am so happy to see her progress, he is great teacher.
I as a student of Kartik sir is very satisfied with his teachings . I found playing ukulele very interesting and I am enjoying learning about music with him . I am very excited to learn to play more songs on Ukulele . Thank you .
Excellent tutor. Do not leave till you succeed.
I have been playing guitar for quite sometime now but I had reached a plateau and wasn't able to move forward. So I started taking classes from Kartik Sir and he helped me in moving forward and cleared a lot of basics I had no idea about. He's a very talented and great guitar teacher. Highly recommended him.
Amazing guitar experience ... Kartik sir is dedicated and honest in his teaching.. it was a wonderful experience to learn from Kartik Sir .. would recommend guitar enthusiast to learn from sir
He is Very good and also very humble person . He teaches in very simple way ,so that anyone could learn guitar very easily
It's been almost a month since I've started learning from Kartik and I'm enjoying my classes, his behavior and way of teaching is so great. Learning with Kartik is more of fun classes with too much knowledge than just any other class. Thanks Kartik hope we will do much better with time.
I have been learning guitar from Kartik for quite some time and it has been a great experience. He has a great guitar skills and the way he imparts his knowledge to his student is also commendable. Very good experience being associated with him.
“Kartik's expertise in teaching has put our minds at ease ".
He walked me through music theory, as well as the details of the guitar. As a beginner, I was nervous about picking up an instrument but I am now pretty confident I can learn how to play the guitar. Thanks for the great lesson and I look forward to many more....!!
Friendly yet professional and teaches guitar in an easy way, He is realistic about goals and insists on practice to be regular and concise.
I have been Kartik's student for a month now. He is an excellent teacher with great passion for music. I really like his teaching methods, right from the beginning he focuses on music theory and teaching students concepts of music rather than songs. He is a very patient teacher(which I think is important for a beginner like me) and answers all my queries doesn't matter how trivial they are. I would highly recommend Kartik as a teacher to anyone who wants to learn music.
I am happy with every week improvement my kid is showing....Happy to say Kartik sir is a great teacher...teaches very well...
Because he knows that how to motivate his students and how to teach them.
It’s an amazing experience for me to learn guitar from this place. Kartik is very talented musician and a great mentor. He is not only teaching you the guitar but he is actually providing the right education of music which you may miss at other music centres.
I already tried to learn guitar from 2 different mentors but finally, I like the approach of Kartik and you’ll get learning under his wonderful professional studio.
I am extremely glad that I found this place for learning guitar. Right education allows one to learn any thing on a right pace and direction.
I am pretty sure that I am in right direction while learning from Kartik Sir.
Kartik is a very passionate musician. With the mix of theory and practical he pays heed to the technicalities and make learning fun. Even though sometimes you want to give up but as soon as you are practicing with him you are motivated and energized.
I am so lucky to found Kartik as a mentor. He teaches so well and every session is so managed and aligned that your learning becomes so smooth with him.
Kartik is an amazing guitar player and knows multiple instruments and multiple aspects of music as well.
Highly appreciated for his classes.
I do stay in USA and it very tough to find someone who can teach Indian as well as western stuffs and luckily I found Kartik. He is an amazing teacher to learn guitar/ukulele from scratch. My son is taking ukulele lessons from him and he is enjoying the sessions, also he is able to play stuffs perfectly.
I am very impressed and comfortable with the teaching style and methodology of Kartik.
He teaches with the proper modules and always improvise the learning according to the need.
Loved the atmosphere of 7th chord Music Academy️️
Kartik is an amazing guitarist and can play guitar in multiple styles. He has good command on Indian and western songs on guitar.
Surely recommend him for people!!
It is fun to learn a guitar from Kartik. He knows the aspects of teaching guitar very well. He is capable to teach you since scratch and will take you the next level with the time.
Thank you so much for teaching me.
Great experience in learning guitar from Kartik.
Online sessions were very effective and high quality audio, video and content were delivered by Kartik
My son is taking guitar classes from Kartik from last two months and he is doing a wonderful training of him. He started playing basic melodies on guitar and because of small in age my son in having difficulty in holding guitar but still he is managing to play stuffs.
It’s nice to connect with Kartik.
was a completely beginning when I had started learning ukulele from him and what I really like about classes is that he started the things completely from the beginning and started to take you on different level when you understood the basics first.
What I have observed with the music is that, it’s a life long process you don’t have to rush with the things. Give time to yourself and to the craft things will automatically settled down with the time and practice.
Thank you so much Kartik, to have such patience and agreed to teach me from scratch.
One can surely go for his sessions. He knows what he is doing and at the end I really love the environment of his studio, so beautiful and musically ambient
Kartik is very professional in terms of delivering the Lecture on Guitar/Music. His teaching style is mixed with the technical and artistic approach which you finds very rarely nowadays.
Also, he is having an amazing studio setup which makes you feel in the different world in case if you are taking offline sessions from him. I have never seen people teaching from such ambient studio vibe. As a plus, you’ll get the exposure of Recording aspects too while learning guitar from him.
The teachings I am getting are really amazing the teacher understands you and know what the next step should be. Love kartik sir playing style. He is the best at teaching fundamentals and exploring music with you. And what's the most important thing is that he develops your ears as you learn with him
Again thanks for teaching me
As a teacher what he promised to us was well delivered by him and can see really improvement in my son's performance. Overall i can recommend Kartik Sir to any aspiring guitar learners.
They are a very good teacher they assist me aal the time I need and when i was looking to learn guitar in lockdown I found this class and was very good.
I have been learning Guitar from Kartik for the past month now. And it all comes so easily with him.
His is not just focused on helping you play a few songs, but to develop an ear for music which will help you create your own music in time.
The sessions are super interactive and fun. He maps the content to your pace and takes everything from the basics. By the virtue of his methods and techniques i have learnt so much more than what I expected in the past one month.
This is my second attempt trying to learn guitar which I am very passionate about. Experience with Kartik has been quite different as he makes you imbibe on fundamentals of music and right playing techniques that makes your learning experience more fun, easy and satisfying. Me being a novice in this field, he takes time and patience to explain and answer my endless questions. Overall experience has been really good so far and he generates that intrest and passion regularly in me to achieve the goal of learning guitar. Would definately recommend Kartik for all the music lovers who wants to learn an instrument but feel clueless about how and where to start (atleast that's how I felt before but not anymore)......
Kartik has a crisp teaching technique and is very professional. He has deep domain knowledge and has keen interest in music. One can look forward to enhance their skills with his guidance and mentorship.
Kartik is a thorough professional not only from knowing guitar point of view but also the way he trains a total beginner like me. He teaches you the music theories and technology along with practicals so that you actually become well versed with the knowledge of music, not only being able to play some songs but any song because your foundation would be strong.
I have been lucky to find a Music Teacher who is passionate about teaching Music. Kartik has in depth knowledge and has helped me start learning from scratch, something which is very important for someone who does not come from a musical background. I am learning Ukulele from him, and totally loving this journey
My 9 year old son has been learning from Kartik for more than a year now. Kartika is a great teacher and has the patience to teach the notes and bring out the best. I recommend him.
I liked Kartik's approach. He focuses on not just mechanically learning the guitar, but also touches on music theory, aiming to develop an ear for music and finally a goal to create music. His sessions are very educational and fun & interactive.
I've just had about 8-9 sessions, but picked up a lot on the guitar.
As he first see what is the learning style of the student And then start teaching.
I am learning guitar from kartik sir. He is very knowledgeable musician himself and providing the right path by exploring my vision not only on guitar but also towards overall music understanding.
He explain things in deep, provides his perpective and also relate it with his early guitar learning stage which helps me to understand how to practice and what to practice.
Fundamental exercises provided by him are very good which will make you confident and fluent gradually.
His approach is to make fundamentals bricks very strong and then creating artistic structures out of those bricks.
Awsm musician and teacher
As a beginner, I am thoroughly enjoying this course. It is really challenging me, but the instructor is doing a phenomenal job explaining everything. By joining this course I've got many technical knowledge I didn't have and I am very impressed in particular with the pace and technical depth of Kartik, that has taught me how and why the scales and chords are constructed, rather than just having us memorise them.
Highly recommended. His classes are super worthy. One should definitely go for him.
Very Patient and systematic style of teaching. I have been taking classes for the last 2 months and have gained in-depth knowledge of music! Anyone can teach guitar chords, but developing music sense to compose, the logic behind sound harmony, and using off notes to enhance the richness of a song only a few can. It's been an incredible journey! :D
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness
Kartik has very good technical knowledge of music which helps you to understand not just one instrument but many, his teaching methods are simple and very good
Kartik is the best guitar teacher i can imagine, he teaches with patience and clears all the doubt regarding the instrument. He gives good insight of the music and help me to understand it in better way
I think Kartik is one of the best suitable Guitar teacher. He believes to teach the basics and fundamentals of the guitar. His way of teaching is always practical and easy to catch. He is very patient and knowledgeable.
He is very professional musician and the way of his teaching is amazing ️ he has excellent knowledge of many instruments . You can learn easily from kartik because he is friendly and dedicated towards his work. He is very passionate and excellent teacher .
The way sir teaches guitar to his students is awesome. And students develop interest to learn more from this teacher.
He doesn't only focus on How to do but also on Why to do which helps to build a strong base in overall knowledge while learning playing guitar. Having a friendly nature, its quite easy to ask any query. Overall i found him as a great teacher.
I recommend him because he is professionally in the field of music and he is very professional about the quality and skills he is giving to students. Additionally, he is an Audio Engineer and Music Producer which will be a plus experience for any student to learn guitar under him.

Tell us more about your subject. How did you develop an interest in this field?
For me, playing guitar is a way to express yourself in whatever way you want to expose yourself to the world, even it's a Happy Birthday melody but the concept behind is to play any piece of Music with your full expressions behind it, which will make you in love with the guitar and it adds uniqueness in your playing. I have grown myself as a Lead Guitarist and I keep learning and growing in Jazz and improvisation.
I started playing guitar when I was doing Job in It industry as a Software Developer but, in a very amount of time, I had developed a keen interest in learning guitar/music. In the early days, I used to practice 20 to 25 hours a week with the job. As I kept exploring the music and different instruments and genres then finally in 2019 I quit my IT job and gone for a full-time diploma in Audio Engineering and Music Production from Sri Aurobindo Centre for Arts and Communication(SACAC), New Delhi. This decision was a game-changing decision for me and after my diploma, I had set up my own studio and started working as an Audio Engineer, Music Producer, Session Guitarist, Live Guitarist Performer, Live Sound Engineer, and Guitar Instructor.
What or who is the motivation behind you choosing to teach & why?
Initially in 2018, I was approached by one of my neighbors and he insisted me to teach him a guitar, at that time I was busy playing and practicing my own stuff. On request, I started teaching him and slowly people started to get connected with me because of this art. I found immense joy to connect with them and when I get genuine feedback from my students regarding my teaching methodologies a that's the moment for me and this feedbacks motivated me to keep teaching people with love and passion.
This becomes my motivation because by teaching guitar I am bringing value to the life of others. I am bringing a change in the life of others through teaching Music.
How does your work help society?
I think this is self-explanatory because teaching allows you to give your values, art, imagination, thoughts, information directly to the people. I believe nothing is bigger than thoughts because thoughts have the capability to innovate something, to change something for the better. So, I do not have any doubt that my work is not bringing any value to society.
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of & why?
For me, the role model of my work are a couple of people like Ehsan Noorani, George Benson, Guthrie Govan, Wayne Krantz, Warren Mendonsa, Cory Wong, Plini e.t.c. Personally, I love the paying of all the mentioned artists above and I am able to connect with Softful Jazz, Neo Soul, Blues, R&B type of genre in a better way.
Tell us about your hobbies outside teaching.
Other than teaching, I am running my own studio where I am recording, composing, producing, editing, mixing, and mastering projects. Also, I am a multi-instrumentalist and I used to practice Guitar, Bass, Drums, keys, and many more. I am working as a Live Sound Engineer too, where I do an onstage live mix of bands/artists. In my free time, I do read books, watch some spiritual content and play Table Tennis or Walk.
Do you have an anecdote to tell us about your student or professional life?
Well, I do have an anecdote to tell about my professional life. Professionally, I was working as a Software Engineer in an IT firm and my interest in music leads me to switch my career from It industry to Music Industry. Interesting thing is that I do not have such musical background or knowledge before switching my career and I started learning Music as part of an experiment because I was bored in my life and started to take guitar classes to invest my time in some productive hobby. At that time I was unaware that my life would be turned in such a direction because of this experiment.
