Berklee College of Music graduate, B.A in Performance, Advanced Guitar Training

Methodology

I base my teaching on the ideology of having a beautiful blend of good ear training, harmonic knowledge (music theory), instrumental technique, a LOT of playing and some philosophy of music. I try encourage all my students to have their own unique style of playing as well as try to expose them to music of all styles from jazz to metal to EDM etc. so they can appreciate all the different ways to express yourself through music. Usually during class I tend to ask the student what they would want to work on, next I come up with some practice material for the student and have them play it and practice it so they can get a hang of it and once the student is ready I have them play either with me or a backing track or a loop so they can learn how to use these lessons in a real world scenario.

Background

6 years private teaching experience and associate faculty at Global Music Institute in Greater Noida which is the only Berklee Global Partner in India. B.A in Performance from Berklee College of Music. Learnt from teachers who define mastery on their instruments such as Tim Miller, David Fiuczynski, Tomo Fujita, Scott Taruli, Joe Stump, Victor Wooten, Fernando Mitchelin, Neal Itzler, and more. Played numerous studio sessions at Berklee College of Music for various different artists, producers and ensembles such as Mira Cho, SATVA, Varsha Vinn, Katyani, Emma Kern, Brenna Larsen, Small Jazz band ensemble, Rhythm section ensemble, mixed styles ensemble, Luca Zadra, Ourumo etc. Played commercial gigs such as weddings and office parties as well as bar gigs with various GB bands in Vermont, Nantucket, Boston and Cambridge. Recorded guitars as well as performed live for Virender Singh, Dhruv Bhan and Muheet Bharti. Debut EP "Familiar Feelings" under the name Abstract Raj which is a concept of making relaxing music using only guitars and effects. I have also had the privilege of having my name appear on Rolling Stone India magazine 3 times for my involvement with SATVA, and The Great Indian Jams - An Initiative by Utsav Manga. I have also made numerous improv videos for a backing track company named Coffee Break Grooves.

He has a very effective methodology of teaching. He simplifies the toughest topics and explains it with so much dedication. He's never tired for a question or a doubt and he makes sure u understand it from every angle.

Fazal

He is an amazing guitarist and an even better teacher, I was lucky to be tutored by him at GMI, and I've never learnt so much in such a short span of time.

Samanvay

Subharaj taught me at GMI for three months and it was honestly my best experience with a teacher. I was a person who was intimidated by music theory and he made it so much fun that I actually started looking forward to his classes. He's also a fantastic guitarist with command over the instrument and his knowledge of music is impeccable!

Subharaj has been my PI teacher for 3 months and I've learnt soo much advance guitar techniques and also got so many useful playing tips and tricks...
I would definitely recommend him to all intermediate and advanced players who is thinking of taking their playing to the next level. Cheers!

Steven

Raj is an impeccable player, teacher, and all around human being. Very thoughtful and attentive to students and their respective needs. Easy 5 stars!

Brady

Subharaj is the best and most musical guitarist I’ve encountered at Berklee with a wealth of knowledge. A great friend, whose easy to talk to and great at sharing his knowledge and explaining his ideas, Raj will be an amazing teacher for any student.

Sayan

He stands out to me because of his organic feel in his playing. I learned a lot from his occasional Facebook videos and some from his YouTube channel. People who are struggling to put their playing with feel and want to attain ease must learn as much as possible from him..

Nilesh

Subharaj is one of the best guitar players i have known personally. I have taken lessons from him, and I can vouch that he is a very good teacher! The student would take away lots of melodic ideas, compositional tools and most importantly, would develop his/her ear.

Nayantara

Subharaj is one of the most passionate, knowledgeable, and skilled musicians I have ever come across. His willingnesss to share his love for music and his instrument is his greatest asset and serves him well as a teacher. His technical knowledge and strong improvisation skills craft his very unique signature sound, and his pure, unbridled passion for music is unparalleled by anyone else I have ever seen, and he makes difficult concepts easy to understand. I also happen to know him personally, and he is a warm, friendly, funny man who cares about the success of others. I highly recommend Subharaj to any prospective students looking to learn/ learn more about guitar!
