○ Can't figure out Chords or Arrange songs on your own? ○ Looks like Music still plays you. :( ○ Learn how YOU can play and OWN the MUSIC ✓ ○ University of West London Music Degree Verified Teacher.

Methodology

My teaching method is Flexible!
‣ In 3-4 weeks I get a clear Idea of a Student's weakness and based on that I effectively give them exercises to overcome them!
‣ I frequently push the limits of my students with counselling and Practical examples!
‣ I also focus on simplifying music theories and teach their application which helps my students to figure out new musical ideas on their own!
[ especially in the time of lmisleading commercial beckonings like 'learn everything quick' or 'play 30 songs with 2 chords'- where students are becoming divergent from learning the fundamentals and after few months they are stuck and cannot progress anymore; I try to give them a guide to learning to figure out things on their own in the future. ]

‣ When it comes to Fingerstyle students get a proper idea from me on how to arrange their own song rather than strictly sticking to a piece of paper.

‣ I keep a balance between students requested stuffs and the stuffs which are actually necessary for their improvement.

‣ Most importantly students who are impatient with developing something properly then progressing to the next level- I teach them the Value of two elements-
•Melody (Notes)
•Rhythm (Tempo)
without which basic music is incomplete or non-musical. So I teach them the value of both the elements and how to keep up with them slowly.

Super Teacher

Saikat is one of our best teachers. A high quality profile, verified qualifications, quick response rate and loved by students!

Background

○ I'm a Modern Experimental Percussive Fingerstyle Guitarist and a Music Composer with the Knowledge of many other Musical Instruments!
○ Been Teaching Guitar and some other Instruments from 2018.
Striking fact about me is that I started learning at 2016. So I have all the secret and tricky hacks to master the instruments quicker but in exchange of tremendous dedication and Patience.
○ I'm a certified guitar Teacher with a Distinction in Grade 8 from London College of Music under The University of West London. I didn't appear for the previous Grades and confidently cracked Grade 8.
○ I'm from Bengal and I specialize in Rabindrasangeet and I've published the First ever Fingerstyle Musical Notations Book of Rabindrasangeet currently available throughout the world online on Platforms like Amazon! It's shocking that no one tried to do this before.
○ So many students have performed live fingerstyle events already.

Review from Saikat

QUESTION 01 | 06
Tell us more about your subject. How did you develop an interest in this field?
Saikat — Music was a minor part of my grown ups but somehow it had an indirect effect on my mind and towards my passion in arts. I used to play football (Soccer) when I was young and used to find art in the style of playing. I found rhythm in playing, passing, juggling and even while walking. I had to discontinue playing football and that's when I realized I had a growing passion for Music and musical instruments. So I started with a Guitar and found out all the transcendental influences from my childhood when my family members used to culture music and art. Since then I never looked back. I embraced music and art as a part of my life.
QUESTION 02 | 06
What or who is the motivation behind you choosing to teach & why?
Saikat — Teaching was my hobby from the very childhood and the reason is obvious- My father is a teacher himself. He was also a teacher's trainer. My fundamental psychology and character was influenced by his teachings greatly. He has taught me all the teaching methods from a very young age and I have grasped everything on how friendly behaviour and patience is the key to teaching everything. I am thankful to have learnt all this from him.
QUESTION 03 | 06
How does your work help society?
Saikat — I teach music in an unusual manner. I talk, I give real life examples that not only improve the musical sense of a student but it also improves the mental health and the positive views of my students. I always try to influence everybody to make a positive change in the world either through music or some other way.
QUESTION 04 | 06
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of & why?
Saikat — I'll never be able to think of one single role model. I'm a product of all the lessons and influence I have taken from everybody and everything around me up to the current day of my life and I will keep doing so. I learn from my students too.
QUESTION 05 | 06
Tell us about your hobbies outside teaching.
Saikat — I am a seeker. To simplify my thousands of hobbies in one word would be Learning and Executing. I love to learn new things, skills I love to gather new knowledge on everything around me and use everything I have taken to produce a positive result. Obviously music oriented matters are prioritized. But I am also learning things outside music too to spend my pastimes and I enjoy that a lot.
QUESTION 06 | 06
Do you have an anecdote to tell us about your student or professional life?
Saikat — In my 11th Grade of High School I was introduced properly to the guitar by one of my friends. I was so obsessed with this instrument that I decided to make a six stringed instrument on my own. So I took my badminton racket and restrung it's six strings like a guitar and attached a horn at the end of it. I remember I would play open string exercises and strum my racket-guitar all day long. That's when my father thought of getting me an actual guitar. To learn more about me visit my website www.saikatde.com
