I have also been awarded the ARTIST’S CERTIFICATE by the Government of Maharashtra for serving in the field of music for more than 15 years.
Perfect! Haroon is still finding a singer in me, i never believed myself… he is so big in his career but he has so much love and respect to the newcomers.. i believe i am a difficult student because i dont take appreciation in the way it should actually be taken because of the past experience i have had ..but haroon has made me believe that i am a good singer too … to learn anything u have to enjoy and i enjoy my classes with haroon .. he has methodical way of teaching where he crafts the classes according to my requirements and my voice type … i always have a problem when teachers expect sachin tendulkar to sing and lataji to do batting… luckily haroon has intellectually placed my voice and the songs that are suited for my voice type than me being someone else … i can go on forever but long story short he crafts and focus on all areas of vocal training and i would highly recommend him ..especially to those girls who find having a bass voice is manly and not pretty in india… this mentor will make u feel special …
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Ashwini is one of my bests singers, her voice is super powerful and beauty is her voice’s second name. I love working on her voice. She is fun to teach and luckily she believes her teacher and working hard and in just few sessions she has show the best of her voice already :) Ashwini you are awesome
Perfect! It has been few months since I started taking online classes from Haroon. He is such a kind human being I have ever met, so down to earth, friendly and what an amazing voice he has.
I thought to give up few times in the beginning but he always brings in new ideas of practice to keep me motivated and really encourages me. I am based in UK and I have never faced time zone difference issues. He always adjust the class timings as per my convenience if and when required.
I would highly recommend Haroon for Online and in person Music classes.
Perfect! Haroon is a great singing teacher and I would highly recommend him. His teaching style is holistic and he places great emphasis on posture and breathing, on top of getting the notes right, which truly makes the vocals sound smooth and effortless once you get the hang of it. Haroon always explains why things are done the way they are instead of just asking me to do them and helps me really understand the fundamentals at a deeper level- it might seem like it should be standard practice but I'm always surprised by the number of teachers who don't do this. He is also flexible with the timings and the pace of his classes which is great for working professionals who need to balance office with singing classes!
Perfect! Haroon is an incredible teacher and vocalist. His vocal range is HUGE. He helped me relax jaw tension and hit notes I never thought I could. Of all the vocal coaches I've worked with on Superprof, he is the most competent. Thank you!!
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Chandrakant is a very beautiful singer. I love the color of his voice and the way his voice moves softly is amazing. Looking forward to work more with you Chandrakant.
Perfect! Haroon really focuses on making you feel comfortable in your own skin. Techniques are obviously well explained, but it's the comfort that is so important to help bring out the confidence in students!
Perfect! Haroon is a fantastic teacher. One of his key strength as a teacher is his ability to combine the new methods of voice coaching with the old to help get the same output as you would from a traditional classical ustad.
Perfect! Haroon is a wonderful teacher and mentor! He not only helps you understand how to improve your singing and vocal techniques but also makes you feel comfortable and confident in your singing. He believes everyone can sing :)
Over the weeks we've practiced many songs and Haroon has identified the different areas that need practice and provided the relevant breath and vocal exercises to improve those areas. I can definitely feel an improvement in my singing and confidence.
Would highly recommend him for your classes!
Perfect! Haroon Sir is a natural when it comes to understanding a person's capabilities and bringing out the best in their vocal abilities. In just four classes, I was able to achieve something I never thought was possible given my voice. I am so excited for my future lessons with Haroon Sir and see all the exciting things we could possibly achieve.
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Prajnya is very beautiful and humble human being who owns a beautiful shining voice like her smile. A passionate artist, I am sure she will be a charming vocal light soon. I am really happy working with you my lady :)
Perfect! Haroon is an exceptional teacher. He really cares about the progress of his students and makes sure the student is learning in each lesson. I am already noticing improvements in my voice since starting lessons with him couple of weeks ago. We focus on vowel shapes, breath support and healthy voice habits so that I leave every session with something new to practice, and every session is recorded for my use.
After years of talking about it, I finally started taking voice lessons a few weeks ago. I researched many different teachers and decided to go with Haroon because his reviews described him as being experienced and patient. Now that I've been working with him for a few weeks, I can vouch for both of these characteristics.
I can't recommend him enough! Not to mention he is very funny & friendly as well. :-)
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Preethi has a beautiful mezzo voice and like her charming smile her voice will charm your ears as she begins to sing. A focused and passionate singer. I love singing with you Preethi and your growth is a gift to your teachers. Loads of love
Perfect! I had 4 classes with Anirudh Iyer now (an associate teacher in Haroon Akhtar Music Entertainment). Anirudh is very friendly and encouraging and his explanations are easy for me to understand. He taught me vocal warmups that helps my voice a lot and he also helps me check if I'm doing it correctly through WhatsApp outside of classes whenever I feel unsure. Every classes is recorded so I can refer to it anytime. I had a fatigue voice for few years due to the unhealthy way of me using my voice even when talking. There's not a week where my voice don't feel the need to have complete vocal rest and it's overall an unreliable voice. After our 1st lesson and doing the warm ups for a week, I noticed that the fatigue problem was gone. I didn't expect it to be solved that quickly. I understand a lot more about the heathy ways of using my voice now and I feel hopeful for my voice progress. It is a lot stronger and reliable now and I am very happy that I made the decision to invest in taking lessons here. The classes is what I'm looking forward to every week and I'm excited for the future lessons. If you are serious with improving your voice and singing, definitely give it a try.
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Yong Khin is one of the most focused and versatile artists I have seen by far, His humility and punctuality makes him best in his way. Me and Anirudh, we are really happy to work with you.
Perfect! I have worked with Haroon for a little over a month now and can say without a doubt that I am a better singer for it. Haroon's instruction is concise, informative and he clearly cares about his students. I plan to continue working with him for as long as I am able and would recommend his instruction to anyone who wishes to find their unique voice and gain confidence in singing.
- Haroon Akhtar's response : John owns a great colourful baritone voice, I would say a premium voice which can make you feel all the emotions. Working with him has been a great experience and with his improvement in just a month it shows how passionate he is about singing. I can clearly see in sometime doing great in music field. I am happy and proud of you John.
Perfect! Haroon has been such an amazing guide to me !! A technical mind with a scientific approach towards voice and singing. His teaching methods are very practical and I’ve learn how to support my voice with my body after all! Being professionally singing for last 4 years Haroon has really offered me something I lacked for a long time in my singing technique !! And I continue to explore the same journey with him further …..
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Gurashish is one of my celebrity Singers, He is a humble, focussed, disciplined and curious soul. Student like him helps the teacher to grow with their genuine questions and with their passionate approach to this beautiful art of singing. He is already a star and in few years you will see a Superstar in Bollywood Name THE GURASHISH SINGH. I am proud to be your teacher Gurashish
Perfect! Awesome personality, able to connect with the student very well assessing the weaknesses and strengths aptly.
- Haroon Akhtar's response : What a voice, Eshna is a very beautiful singer and performer, I love working with her, she is full of energy and class with Eshna is full of entertainment. I love your voice my dear.
Perfect! I am very lucky to have Haroon sir as my singing coach. He is very loveable. I was not that confident before. But after joining his classes, I have seen that big difference in my singing. I would love to learn more from him as much I can learn. His style to teach music is very different and unique. Thankyou sir for giving me that confidence that I can sing beautifully . I would highly recommend to learn music from him :)
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Shivani is a charming singer, who can lite your mood with just one line of her singing, she owns such a beautiful voice. Seeing her hard work and love for music I am so certain that she is gonna be a great musician in future. Loads of love to you Shivani.
Perfect! I came to Haroon with the purpose of expanding my vocal range as an actor. However, he has been working on both my vocal and singing voice with great results. He has a vast knowledge and experience for the vocal instrument and always has a solution to tackle each and every problem you may encounter. Ive been seeing great results with only a few classes and most of all, the sessions make you feel alive. A feeling which you carry through the week and more. Its true, singing opens the gateway to a lot of feelings and emotions and Haroon guides you through it passionately. I’m also starting Piano lessons with Haroon and am super excited about it.
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Shiven is an amazing Singer & actor with a beautiful baritone voice. His passion for music and acting makes him the perfect all rounder superstar material. We growing together and more to go.
Perfect! Very friendly and helpful teacher .

- Haroon Akhtar's response : Veer sir, A man with never ending charm on his face and in his voice. I am enjoying every session with you. Its fun to see someone enjoying the learning so passionately and taking out time to practice out of his very busy schedule. You are amazing sir.

Perfect! I am manjunath from Netherlands, started taking professional singing classes from Harron.Haroon is excellent teacher, he conducts the classes in a way it is very easy to understand and digest. This way it will be very easy to practically apply the technique to the songs and get more beautiful sound. I definately recommend Harron, he will make your dreams come true. Good luck.
Perfect! I have come to enjoy my sessions with Haroon. He is a people’s person and his teaching methodologies are gold.
Perfect! My 1st session with Sir was full of fun, laughter, and some light on how he intends to go about the singing classes. Sir has a rear quality of giving confidence to the student that yes you can do it. Right from the beginning, he made me feel comfortable and I could easily sing along with him without being conscious about it. I am now enrolled with him and it's super fun doing all the breathing techniques and enjoying the various challenges given by him on the spot. Already looking forward to my next class with him.
Perfect! In my opinion , He has extensive knowledge on various aspects of voice training from breath exercise (which most aspirants don't focus on) to vocal exercise .
The best part is that he will be your buddy with whom you can share literally anything .
Perfect! Haroon is very friendly, encouraging and knowledgeable. I look forward to classes with him as I know they will help me become the best singer I can be.
Perfect! Haroon sir has been a fantastic teacher so far. All our sessions have been fun. The best part is he understands what his students need to work on and focusses on those aspects. Also, he has answers to all questions that a person has on singing and teaches all his techniques amazingly.
Can’t wait to learn more from him!
Perfect! Haroon is an amazing teacher. He is positive, nurturing and genuinely cares about his art and sharing it with others.
He responded to my request really quickly, helped me set up a demo class, and get me started on the road to becoming a better singer.
He teaches you the right techniques, the importance of them and helps you understand how it plays a smaller part in the big picture. I loved my class and can’t wait to learn more!
Thank you Haroon!!
Perfect! Haroon had segmented the lessons to be engaging and fun to learn in, no task was made to feel too difficult and he is very supportive and has a incredible attitude and passion towards singing and teaching others!
Perfect! I’m Sriram Ravishankar, a singer-music producer and a media professional.
If you are a hobbyist wanting to sing at a party or a serious working professional looking for advanced insights to up your game, Haroon has enough and more for you! His solid years of training (under our dearest teacher, the inimitable Gilles Denizot, of Operalab India) and experience as a singer, will leave you wanting more from each of your class with him! Haroon’s unique ability to be your friend and a teacher simultaneously, makes the learning almost effortless! Your each session with him will inspire you as much as it will comfort you!
He breaks down complex concepts to its simplest morsel, making everything you learn immediately digestible, thereby nourishes the artist in you! Of all the passerby I’ve come across who claim to claim to teach singing in Mumbai, Haroon is undoubtedly one of the best, dedicated, reliable, and highly qualified professional.
As this website rightly describes him, he’s a rare find indeed!
Perfect! Methodology and identifying your strengths
Perfect! Haroon thoroughly knows his subjects and the best part is he knows how to customise it as per individual’s requirements. Very patient and meticulous with his techniques and ensuring proper evaluation of students understanding of the same makes him a teacher who is a class apart. His years of training, experience and insight will definitely leave you with an absolute understanding of your (voice)instrument and make you inculcate the teaching as a part of your living and not just singing. Right from his punctuality, to lesson preparation he will leave you feeling inspired and train you to sing better. Undoubtedly One the best vocal teachers in Mumbai who actually knows his stuff
Perfect! I couldn't have asked for anything more. He delivered the best of the best in giving me a glimpse of western style of singing. To put my abilities into perspective, he took the initiative to know about my on-going learnings in Western Classical Violin. I was made aware of the breathing technique, posture and the category of vocal range I belonged to. Time flew so fast that I never wanted the session to end.
Perfect! Very knowledgeable.
Understands music Very well.
Perfect! Haroon sir has been kind enough to accept me as his student into music 3.5 years ago . Life changed and I haven’t looked back . He is the most unique teacher . and while I could go on and one , there are 4 attributes that I would like to share . The first is that he truly believes everyone can sing . with this strong conviction backing him ,he understands his students goals and makes it his own . and the funny part is somewhere along the way the student moves far ahead of his goals and doesn’t realise how far she/she has come and when one looks back one realises he has moved way past and then sets newer goals . The second attribute is his commitment and dedication – in the time he teaches – there is complete focus and concentration – no distraction not for a second ,not for anything . his focus is only that one student . The third is his ability to switch between adapting to a number exactly the way its been delivered (perfection there ) or making that song your own , so no one but the singer owns it . Sir moves beautifully between these 2 elements and teaches his students how to do this too . The last one and the most important one is his differentiated Riyaz . and its tough .. but if one persists – music just flows . This is really the backbone and in the last 3.5 years , his Riyaz too has grown with him as a person and he experiments till he figures out which one works best with voice type .
This is Haroon sir as a teacher .
Haroon sir as a person is family – to every student who has been his student – every single student will write this . He is 100% pure emotion .
True to his ART , True to his passion and True to his loves – My Haroon sir is a GEM .
To sir with Love – Rupa
Perfect! It was beautiful how my young teacher Haroon put me at ease from the very first class. His methodology is different, and he helps one find and define one’s own space in the world of music. I was diffident because of my age and voice. He repeatedly stressed the need for me to accept my voice and enjoy the act of singing and everything else would fall into place. It most certainly did, and it proved that age is just a number.
The first thing he told me was not to copy another singer’s style. Just be myself, and sing from my heart in my original voice. That helped me overcome my inhibitions. Understanding his students, accepting their strengths and helping them use the full potential of their voice and talent, are definitely among his strengths. His cheerful and positive attitude made even the first class interesting. The exercises, explanations, and adapting the class to teach in a manner that suits the student makes learning a joyful experience. Here’s wishing my dear teacher all success and happiness in his musical journey.
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Kalpana ma’am is a power house of positivity and inspiration for me, I love the tone quality of her voice. A very dedicated and passinate singer and a very beautiful human being. I love our singing sessions.
Perfect! Had my first lesson with Haroon and loved it ! I really appreciate the fact that he started the lesson with assessing my goals and also asking about what i expected from these sessions! He keeps the session very practical with his modern techniques and implementation. The lesson was a perfect mixture of learning and fun. He makes sure that lessons are engaging and interesting. In just the first lesson, I gained a whole lot of information about my voice, my strengths and weaknesses and also strategies to improve. I think I already know a lot more about my voice and am already a better singer by just attending! I don't think I could have asked for any more concentrated information from one lesson. Thanks Haroon !
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Daman sir is a dedicated and a beautiful singer. He understands the value of techniques. The focus on everything we do and gives hi 100% attention to what we do. I love working with him.

Perfect! I am what I am musically because of Haroon sir. I will be forever grateful for the way he has taught me and guided me in every stage of my life. He has played a major role in shaping my life and my musical career right from my early 20s. I think I was just lucky to find him at the right time. I got to learn so many techniques, vocal exercises and life lessons which have been extremely helpful in my life. He’s not only an amazing singer but also an amazing teacher and this combination is pretty rare. I found the confidence and courage to pursue singing professionally after joining his classes and now I can proudly say that I am doing very well in this field. All credit goes to his dedication towards teaching. I highly recommend his classes to all you guys who want to learn singing and eventually become a pro in it.
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Akash is one of my most promising and dedicated students. Along with his beautiful voice, he is very intelligent, responsible, hard-working & always wanting to face new challenges. I am most certain that in coming few years, he is going to be the next big name in the Indian Music industry. I am proud of him.
Perfect! One session with Haroon Akhtar sir is enough to have a whole new perspective to singing. Due to his expertise in Indian Classical, Western Music and songs of so many other genres and languages, I never felt limited in any of his session. I got to know so many interesting Techniques and exercises related to Posture, Breathing, Diaphragmatic support, Vocal warm-ups, that has helped me tremendously to improve aspects of my singing that I never even thought of. Before joining him, I never felt I could sing so high, I could never appreciate my voice for its uniqueness. His teaching methodology literally hypes up my motivation in every class. He provides us with everything that he has and it feels like it wont perish anytime soon. He has at least 10 immediate solutions for every vocal issue we face and that's his wisdom in this field which always inspires me. Its been 4 years since I started training under Haroon Sir, and even now I learn something new in every class. I have experienced the big phase of improvement and I can literally spot the places where I have improved as a singer and all credit goes to him. I'll never find the need of joining someone else, because I feel completely secure about my voice and singing when being trained under him. To sum it up, under Haroon Sir, you are getting trained to be a versatile star performer.
- Haroon Akhtar's response : Anirudh is an amazing singer and he is one of my star students with a great musical sense. He is humble, punctual, passionate and a very beautiful human being who inspires you to learn more. I am really happy and proud of him. I can certainly see a star rising in him and leading the music world by making a great name in few years.

Haroon is the must have super singing teacher that you can find on Google. Having already worked several times with him, I recommend him 1000%. In addition to mastering the art of the Singing brilliantly, he also knows how to transmit his passion with benevolence and pedagogy. And icing on the cake, he is super nice!
So, if you're looking for a great singing teacher, go to Haroon Akhtar Music Academy.
Haroon is a competent Vocal tutor. He was able, in a short time, to make our 8-year-old daughter love the Singing. Thanks to Haroon akhtar’s playful method of learning Vocals and music theory, his patience, his empathy and his seriousness. My daughter Anaya started singing in July 2021, and not only does she take pleasure from one session to another, but she also evolves. We have seen many teachers but the way Haroon handles his student is very rare in today’s teachers.Thank you so much Haroon!! A professor that we highly recommend!!
Haroon Akhtar sir is simply awesome! I think he is the best singing teacher in the world because of his affectionate and motivating personality. His exercises are so easy and fun which you enjoy while doing. He and his associate teachers at Haroon Akhtar music academy knows how to build confidence and above all makes a lot of progress at the technical level. The lessons spent with him were extremely beneficial to me and allowed me to take more control of my voice and the different methods to be comfortable while singing. This is the year when I made the best progress in singing. It also allowed me to be more confident and to have a good time. There is no doubt about it: he is a top vocal tutor on google and everywhere. I would blindly recommend haroon Akhtar sir to any musician who wants to fall in love with their singing. All the best haroon sir :)
It's been a few months since I started training under Haroon. He is a very inspiring teacher, always reminding us to believe in the strength of our own unique voice and our capabilities. He is funny, friendly, articulate and has an astute sense of observation to bring out the right corrections needed while singing. Having been trained in western classical as well as Indian he not only incorporates all the basics needed in singing but also makes us prepare in performing those pieces. I can see so many positive changes in the way I sing now and I'm immensely grateful to Haroon. I completely trust him in my journey to reach a professional level. Very highly recommend him.
Haroon Sir is one of the best teachers I have been blessed to have. He exactly knows how to bring the best out of a person. I have personally struggled to understand what the right vocal techniques would be for my voice but after starting to learn from Haroon Sir, I feel more confident about my vocal abilities and feel comfortable in trying out different genres. He has a unique teaching style compared to any other vocal teachers I have had, more so in the sense that he'll teach what the student wants to learn rather than what the teacher is willing to teach. That itself shows how knowledgeable he would be.
I would strongly recommend Haroon Sir to anyone who wants to know the true strengths of their voice and to anyone who would wish to improve as a musician.
For context, I have no experience in singing or any musical instrument. I just love listening to songs.
I signed up for the intro class with Haroon sir out of curiosity to see if there is any scope of me singing. Today, about a month later, I am able to sing an entire song at a level that I could never aspire to be at before.
The best part about Haroon sir is how comfortable he makes you feel irrespective of where you are in your journey with music. He is really good at calibrating and adjusting himself to what would work best for you and help you grow. I love the fact that my sessions with him are not only insightful and full of learning, but are a lot of fun!
Amazing experience! I've been taking online classes with Haroon sir and he's the most fun singing teacher I've ever had. He's been focusing on my weaknesses and has given me a plethora of exercises to work on. Learning a lot of technical terminology too!
I have been learning singing from Haroon sir and it has been a great experience. He always tries to help me to get rid of my nervousness. Classes are super engaging too!
Haroon sir is a very friendly teacher.
He has a unique way of teaching.
Each of his class was very interesting and worth every minute.
He is a very trustworthy teacher because he knows how to explain each and every concept regarding music..
As a rating, I would give him 6 stars out of 5.
In my honest opinion, he is one of the best vocal trainers I have come across. With my 4th session coming ahead, I've learnt so much from him in this short course of time. He is definitely an amazing teacher as he makes sure that he knows what the student needs and plans his lessons accordingly. The sessions with him have been so motivating and helpful. I've started adapting the techniques and exercises and it's proving to be really helpful. He is very articulate and his lessons are quite lucid and thus can be beneficial to all. I would definitely recommend him to whoever aspires to be a musician.
Haroon Akhtar Sir is a great teacher. He is so friendly and his way of teaching is awesome. He taught a lot of fundamentals in music and singing I was unaware of. I can easily recommend sir to anyone who wants to learn music, singing and important concepts related to it.
I have been learning music from the past 10years. And I have learned from multiple teachers but I find haroon sir very very different from all because of many many reasons first of all being very friendly which really comforts the student and enables them to talk to him freely and ask him anything without hesitation. He has a very unique techniques and exercises which has already improved my singing alot. After his classes I feel so so positive and my throat feels so happy and I really feel that I can go to great heights and everything is because of haroon sir's encouragement. I have only attended 3sessions till now but the wisdom I gained in these three lessons is equivalent to the wisdom I can gain in 3 years. Thank u very much for everything sir. U are the best:)
Haroon Sir was just fantastic. He is an amazing singer and teacher and would recommend you to join his music classes. I'm sure that you'll never get dissapointed.
I am having time if my life learning voice lessons from Haroon. He knows his stuff well! I’ll recommend him highly.
Haroon is very patient and a kind teacher to learn music from.! He’s extremely technical and very knowledgable individual.
Haroon is an amazing teacher, a perfect vocal coach my son ever needed. He makes the session very interesting and enjoyable. He pays attention to every single detail such as posture, breathing techniques and warm up exercises.
I don’t know where to begin. Haroon sir isn’t just a vocal coach, he is a life coach for me. His methods of teaching are tailored to every student. He deciphers the personality of a student and perfectly matches the lessons to that. For me personally, I was very introverted and that reflected in my singing as well. We worked just a few classes and I could see substantial improvement in myself. He took a video of me on the first day and asked me to see myself on the last. To be honest, I didn’t believe him. I promise you, in just a few classes I couldn’t fathom what I saw. For the first time in my life I felt like ‘hey, maybe I don’t sound that bad after all’. He really does believe in the phrase anyone can sing. Each lesson of his is full of energy, passion, compassion and imagination. Also, the singing techniques and terminologies which are difficult to understand, he explains it like he would explain it to a 5 year old. His knowledge and passion for singing is unmatched and I’m glad he’s decided to impart his vast knowledge to the world in the most elegant and effortless manner. I’m so glad I decided to go for Haroon sir. Anything else would be substandard.
I have been working with Haroon for the past 2.5 years. He is a great vocal coach. As a Carnatic singer, I wasn’t adapting easily to other genres of music. I learnt to navigate scales easily and gain mastery over vocal production. He has a phenomenal eye to spot out your issues and strengths and sing different languages and genres without inhibitions. He gives undivided attention to you in class. A remarkable and superb person to work with - highly recommend
Haroon sir very knowledgeable in his field .I can say he is a perfect teacher to train a student as well as he will give us lots n lots of confidence. His way of teaching is excellent nd student is able to understand quickly. Haroon sir is not only a good teacher but also a good friend. He's fantastic, dedicated, hard working and anyone would be lucky to have him as their teacher!
Haroon is a brilliant teacher. His concepts are clear and he makes sure that he gives his 100% to students. His methods are simply perfect
Haroon - A singer, composer, teacher and trainer of music, a multifaceted personality, Haroon is a self made professional who stood the test of time to pursue his cherished goal of making it in the huge world of music. A perfect combination of a fine sensitive caring nature and sharp intellect which help create soul toching and superb music. Music flows out of him, since he worships music, lives and breathes music. As a gurdian and teacher of music he becomes a very responsible person who who has to carry forward the torch of love, kindness and peace. With his unique teaching skills Haroon has given a never before dimension to learning and imbibing music.
The dedication with which he teaches along with the techniques is just perfect and worth your time and money. If you found him searching for a vocalist teacher, just stop surfing and begin your learning, i'm sure it'll be a wonderful experience for you too.
He is an awesome vocalist and an excellent guru for any student who wishes to learn music. Haroon sir has helped me a lot to understand about vocal techniques, breathing exercises & vocal control. 1 session is enough for a person to understand how good he is
Haroon has the ability to build a safe space in his 1:1 sessions which encourages even new students to take risks. I think this is critical to the learning process for students to challenge themselves and come out of the comfort zone. He is very knowledgeable and continuously tailors his approach to suit the student.
Also, Haroon focuses on the combination of techniques followed by singing practice in his sessions which ensures helps me absorb and apply the concepts, and also keeps me very engaged.
I have had 3 sessions so far and already feel more confident as a singer and positive about my learning path ahead.

I'm Prajith Nair, a professional percussionist from Mumbai. I got to be a part of an event, where I met Haroon sir. Having heard that he has worked with great artists, I was astonished with the fact that he turned out to be super humble and a bunch of joy. He carries a wonderful heart of a guru and wisdom of a supreme teacher. In that very concert, I saw him teaching some great new vocal exercises & techniques which immediately led people realise how great they can sound while singing. I got a chance to understand, how we can connect our mind and body to our instrument. Haroon Sir will definitely open your eyes and introduce you to the reality behind using techniques to be a better singer or instrumentalist. I have experienced how Haroon Sir's mentoring has helped many of my friends to choose music and singing as their career. I can guarantee that he is one of the most knowledgeable person in this field.
Haroon Sir is a really loving person and hence a loving coach too. He teaches with utmost patience and clarity. Haroon Sir has always been there to boost up the confidence of any student who feels low. Thankyou Haroon Sir for always being there for us.
The vocal lab of Haroon is a deeply transformative experience,
1) You will learn the framework anatomy of the human voice.
2) Haroon’s expertise to observe, analyse, experiment and come out with personalised techniques for every individual is an exclusive factor.
3) The collaborative sessions where we get together and sing, have us explore multiple ways.
4) Each and every session is soulful, you
learn to sing and learn much more about yourself through the guru, Haroon Akhtar.
Haroon is a very passionate and talented singer and teacher. I have known him for 6 years now and have known only a few people as passionate, talented & hardworking as he is. A thorough professional & very knowledgeable singing coach.
He is very well trained in Indian as well as western classical systems of music, and that shows in his own singing as well as teaching.
I would highly recommend him to anyone who's genuinely interested in learning to significantly improve their singing voice, in Indian singing style or western.
Haroon master has taught my three children and myself for a long time. He’s been patient with our progress and also pushes us to do our best. The classes are interesting and interactive which keeps us at ease. He is knowledgable and his teaching helps us understand concepts easily.
Haroon sir is great at what he does. He teaches really well and brought out the best in me and my voice. He knows all the techniques well and taught me how I can apply them onto my singing thus helping me improve. My singing improved a lot after I started his classes and I recommend him to anyone wanting to up their vocals game!
Probably my basics of light music got an edge just because of Haroon sir! His teaching definitely helped me a lot to improve my vocal techniques and style of singing. Though the period I learnt under him was about just 3 months yet the lessons I learnt is worth more! Apart from just teaching he has always inspired us to do better through his way of singing and always made sure we stick to our originality and not copy or imitate anyone's style of singing. Also stage etiquettes and how to present yourself on stage were certain add-ons to my learnings! I would like to extend my earnest gratitude for having given me an opportunity to learn and explore my musical journey so far!
He is one of the best teachers .. each student is different & he understands each one of them and trains them to take maximum use of ones sterngths and works to eliminate or overcome their weakness ..a superb teacher all in all
A very dedicative and humble by nature its a sign of good Teacher.
Ur voice is so melodious. Excellent work Haroon.
I’m Mathew , a singer from London. Haroon sir is one of the few people who really wants his students to grow and he is an inspiration. After his classes I’ve really seen myself improve alot and the way he teaches the techniques and shares his knowledge is amazing. I’m Happy to have been mentored by him and I hope to see you as his student ! Good luck.
When you decide to learn a skill, you first think about from whom you would want to get trained. We all look for an environment where we can get comfortable and also learn the skills with fun and ease. Hence we search for a tutor who posses all the skill sets with tactful discipline and essentially in whom we can also find a friend. The first name I would suggest with my eyes closed and with no second thought, would be the one and only 'Haroon Akhtar'. Sir is one such a brilliant musician who teaches all the technical aspects that an aspiring musician must acquire in their musical journey.
I was fortunate and humble enough to meet such an inspiring and mesmerizing musician. These words are not mere ones, this is written out of my experience.
#Get trained from the best.
Haroon is a dedicated, experienced and passionate professional. His vocal skills have got many accolades and appreciation for the college. He has a unique voice is and a perfect playback singer texture.
Haroon is best and trustworthy teacher because he is passionate for music and would help his students achieve the same and he treats his students like his family.

Haroon sir not only has indepth knowledge of vocals but also knows how to bring out the best out of each and every student. His techniques and teaching style are excellent and that's a quality which very hard to find in many other tutors .
Haroon sir is one of the best teachers I have ever met. He understands the strengths and weaknesses of his students and guides them in a way they require. He ensures that each person gets the training they deserve and reach great heights. He's a great instrumentalist too. He is inspiring, motivating, talented, energetic and passionate about music teaching and learning. I would definitely recommend him to learn music from.
Haroon has always been passionate about his music and has worked very hard towards his goals. I hope (and am sure) his students will benefit a lot with his love, dedication and commitment towards music

Haroon sir is a very unique teacher who understands each student’s ability and enhances it to the best. He is very patient and goes at the student’s pace to help them fully understand the concepts and techniques. The classes are enjoyable and fun rather than strict and serious which is a stress buster and gives a boost of confidence. I absolutely enjoyed learning from him and I would definitely recommend joining his classes.
Amazingly talented musician, I have been fortunate to see him perform live many a times and still can’t get enough of it.

Mr. Haroon is so downo to earth, and best teacher. He gives the personal attention to students. And he the best music teacher.
Any art form has a text book technique and for me personally, music was of natural interest and I just used to sing away leisurely! My cousin first went to Haroon Sir and I saw the amount of changes within weeks! I immediately joined him to learn vocal and singing techniques and it has been an amazing journey! He becomes not just your Guru but also your friend and that gives me a huge sense of comfort! Today around 4 people in my family go to Haroon Sir to learn music! He knows he he's doing, his techniques are well researched, implemented and work really well!
In your voice there is a magic, excellent
Keep it up..all the best
He is an extremely talented singer and musician, Having studied from AR Rahman's music conservatory, his understanding of music is unmatched. Also, he is very friendly and patient with his students. Highly recommended if you really want to learn music.
Haroon Sir is a Wonderful tutor who can demonstrate vocal technical very practically to enhance your range in Singing.. I have personally witnessed it and its really amazing.
Also, during my interaction with Sir... He has suggested some out of the box ideas in my violin playing which has helped me during my performances...
One can definitely trust his ways and will see the difference in your range...
To put in Haroon sir's own words, "any body can sing".
All the best to you Haroun! You have always been dedicated both as a student and a teacher! You will definitely succeed. Stay blessed.
This is Soumyadeep, a professional singer from Mumbai. I have known Haroon sir for more than 4 years now. His teachings are extremely technical and super-effective for the voice. Most of his USPs consist of Breath control, Vocal range extension and stage presence. It's been great working with him and look forward to work more.
The knowledge that he holds and the control over every note makes him a worthy teacher.
If a trainer like him trains you, your range changes, your confidence changes and your emotion improves.
Worth having him as a teacher...
I'm Sainiranjan, a professional guitarist, singer-songwriter and composer from Mumbai. I met Haroon Sir when I was auditioning for a concert that he was conducting and having heard that he had worked with great artists, I was quite nervous. To my surprise, what a humble person he is and with so much of knowledge! Just by speaking to him for a few minutes you get to learn so much. There is so much more to music as well as singing that you cannot usually see. I have seen him transform people's singing drastically with the help of his vocal techniques and exercises. He showed us how important it is to use our whole body support to sing rather than just yell from our throats. Haroon Sir teaches you what is necessary to be your best self as a vocalist and an overall musician. He gives you the tools and techniques to improve your musicianship regardless of the style or genre of music. It has been 4 years since I have been learning different things about music from sir. Every conversation about music with him is a masterclass and introduces you to a completely new perspective. I would recommend you to learn from him because I'm sure it will be one of the best decisions you'll make for yourself. Haroon Sir will show you how to be the star that you already are, but don't know yet!
Haroon Sir is one the most versatile teachers that one can ever come across.
His method of teaching and conversing with his students is his best quality. His friendly nature makes it comfortable for the student to express their desires and concerns to which Haroon Sir provides a solution instantly! He's a caring and loving professor who takes more than a cent percent to uplift his students in the field of music. A true leader!
Hi, I am Sahil Iyer, a guitarist from Mumbai. I met Haroon sir during a social event where I got to work under his guidance and it was literally one of the best experiences of my life. The level of confidence and the command he possesses on the audience is unsurpassed. I got introduced to music ranging from classical to rock to opera and he guided me throughout. I am really grateful to have met him 4 years ago and continue under his guidance and strive to improve.
Haroon is an amazing vocal teacher I ever met, his techniques and methods of teaching are so fabulous. Learning under the guidance of legendary AR Rahman sir makes him unique.
Apart from being a good teacher he has good soul too.

He has tons of ways to help you out in making you understand if one doesn’t work. So if you are looking for a teacher then just go for him with no other thoughts. Thankyou for guiding me the best way possible
Hi, I am Shankar, Mridangist and a vocalist. I am Fortunate to have met Haroon Sir, and to have shared stage with him as a part of a Band Hymn Humanity. During the rehearsals, I observed how he made singing so high seem so effortless. He taught us some really great vocal exercises and warmups which thoroughly enhanced my singing. I am able to overcome majority of my vocal issues because of his guidance and by using the techniques he taught us. I discovered some really interesting aspects of my vocals that i never thought of. I understood the importance of beautifying the range in which we sing, and also enhance my ability to sing high without shouting. Another big thing I learnt from Sir is the emotion and right interpretation of a song. My preconceived notions and mental blockage were cleared completely when i started learning from him
Its been 4 years since i have known him and i am planning a lifetime of learning with Haroon Sir, and only Him!!!! Because Haroon Sir, more than a Vocal Coach for me, has become an Elder Brother to me, that's the bond I share with Him.
He is more than just a teacher, a reliable friend with whom learning will seem just easier everyday. I've learnt so many tips and tricks from him in vocals, however simple they may seem but the results are remarkable. The musical journey will be enjoyable and one can grow into a really polished professional under his guidance.
I know Haroon Akhtar for the past four years. I requested him to conduct online music classes for my seven year old grand daughter who lives in UK. She has improved remarkably and looks forward to his teaching sessions.. I think he is a very talented, patient and sincere teacher. I wish him all the best.
I was very much excited to meet haroon when I learnt about him and yes within few minutes of interaction he was all aware of me and my singing style and where I need to Focus to be the best. Mentioning this because I always wanted a teacher and a mentor like him. He highlights your best part and he works where you lack.
Haroon sir is one of the very few teachers with whom students feel like home. He is very friendly and has unique ways to teach music. It’s always fun jamming with him. One should definitely learn under him for best guidance in music.
I'm Adithya Sriram , a Singer / Composer. To be short about what he does is , he makes DIAMONDS from coal, and that's the way he makes you to sing even if you had NO TALENT . He is a great teacher who does , care about all his students.
I think Mr. Haroon is a very well accomplished teacher as well as a performer and I personally know him for quite while now. I consider myself very lucky to have performed by his side a couple of times and have learned from him alot. I would say that, he is a person who knows what he is doing and understands his craft very well. He is well versed in Indian as well as Western styles of vocal techniques. But the reason I really admire his teaching is because he makes you understand complex music theory topics from a lay man's perspective which I personally value the most. At the end of the day its going to be an entertaining ride rather than a boring lecture. ;)
With an array of teachers who bank on their exposure and knowledge, one often tends to limit their experience with it. Haroon sir is definitely someone beyond it. He's all about giving more than he possibly can with skill, knowledge and most importantly believing in you, which we often tend to lack in ourselves. Although he's worked with the Oscar winner AR Rahman, and made it big so early in life when you meet him in person he's a funny bone, humble man who will bring out the best in you with basic to intense vocal techniques. I'd definitely recommend him to everyone who's search of a wholesome vocal coach and mentor.
Hi, I am Aakriti Pathak, Singer & Performer. I got to meet Haroon sir for the first time, 4 years back when I auditioned to be part of a charity show directed by Haroon sir. Right from that day till now, I admire him for the artist that he is and his teaching techniques!
He is an exceptional Performer & an inspirational teacher who uses practical instances and imparts a lot of wisdom and motivation in his students. One session with him is enough for anyone to understand aspects of singing that one would have never thought of. Any one who enrolls with him will get to learn so much about Posture, Breath, and its influence in singing, Increasing Range, Performance aspects, and many more. By learning under him, you'll experience a whole new perspective towards music and life!
He motivates his students to get the best out of themselves. He is well qualified and has a lot of experience
Haroon sir is an extremely talented musician and an excellent teacher. He has always been our mentor and has taught us how to mould ourselves into being a better musician.
Music is a very subjective field. It is imperative for the teacher to find the balance best suited for the Student and to connect with the Student to bring out their best. Haroon sir does this very dexterously. He also possess an extensive erudition in the musical field. His business acumen, colossal knowledge in music and amiable personality makes him an amazing teacher. Any student would be fortunate to have him as a music coach.
Every teacher requires some sort of skills to impart knowledge but more than that empathy plays an important role in understanding his/her students for pulling them out of shyness, invoke confidence, pushing them beyond their limits thus helping them discover their true talent. Mr. Haroon Akhtar is a qualified musician who has helped many uncover their inner music talent. Along with music theory, he is well versed with the body techniques & postures required to sing a particular genre of music in a certain way (even Opera). His forte lies in Hindustani & Western Classical music and Carnatic classical to some extent.
If you have any inclination towards music Harron sir is going to be an angel in your life.
Learning from such a trained, honest,humble and innovative musician would be your privilege. He is a versatile teacher who knows the art of dealing with students of various age groups and different grasping. Above all he only teaches one student at a time, giving you complete attention to enhance your musical wisdom. Do join and see the difference in you as a singer!
Have been fortune to have got trained by him and shared the stage with Haroon sir. His musical knowledge is coated with love and passion towards it. Learning and getting guidance from him is a blessed opportunity, as one shall get the feel of being in right hands that take you to closer to the dreamt musical journey.
If music is your passion, and making it your career is your dream, then why wait? Reach out to Haroon sir at the earliest to enhance your talent and excel through learning.
Hi, I am Anirudh Iyer, Singer-songwriter & performer from Mumbai. I am Honored to be writing about my mentor, who has been guiding me throughout my musical journey. When I was literally clueless about my career in music, I got the privilege to be mentored by Haroon Akhtar sir.
I still remember the moment when I was inspired by his wisdom in music. That was the day when I met him for the first time. It's been 4 years since then and even now I learn so many new things in every session with him. I feel completely motivated after every session, which is why I trust him so much. You take a problem to him and by the end of the session you'll have at least 10 solutions for it. He provides you with all the necessary vocal exercises, techniques, and warm-ups to improve any of your vocal issues be it, range, frequent tiring of vocals, breath control, dynamics & modulation etc.
His friendly way of teaching helps you gain confidence in your singing, overcome stage fear & bring out the hidden performer in you. With his command over wide range of genres in Indian and Western music, you'll never feel limited when learning from him.
Getting trained and practicing under him is enough for you to feel completely secure with your voice, so as to never think of finding another mentor, because, as far as evolving as a musician, enjoying the learning curve and growing as a person, is concerned, he is the best person to learn from.

Tell us more about your subject. How did you develop an interest in this field?
I grew up in a very musical household. My mother's connoisseur-ship introduced me to the genius of India's legendary tenor, Mohd. Rafi. Her daily indulgence in Indian classical music, ghazals, thumris, and film music, naturally germinated my interest in music and began my journey as an artist. From there on, my training under various teachers, countless hours of listening to maestros, and my own life experiences with music, has exponentially increased my interest in music. As I continue to explore the vast terrains of music, I have experienced the magical powers of a voice. The extent of impact it can have when trained well, is mind blowing.
Through the explorations of my voice, I have come to realise my greater purpose in life. Now as a teacher, it is time to empower the next generation of singers, just like how my teachers empowered me.
What or who is the motivation behind you choosing to teach & why?
From a very young age, I was exposed to a variety of music at home. This laid down the right idols for me to aspire to grow into. Parallel to this, I was extremely fortunate to have learnt rightly under the tutelage of many wonderful teachers who inspired me to find my voice and become the best version of myself. I found both an unbiased listener and an extremely constructive critic in all my teachers. Their manoeuvres, methodologies, humour, and empathy in shaping young artists, immensely inspired me!
To know that, you hold the answers to certain limitations that you once faced as a student, that can be shared with others who may be experiencing the same, is incredibly motivating! As a teacher, I feel responsible to share all that I've been given, with as many artists as possible, so that they too can experience the luxury of vocal freedom!
Two artisans, who shaped my entire perspective in music - Mrs. Surekha Joshi, who walked me through Indian classical music, and Mr. Gilles Denizot, who introduced me to the grandeur and magic of western classical music. Both of their own unique methodologies and insights, has culminated in me, into the musician that I am today. It is their blessings, guidance, and trust in my artistry, that today, I can experience music in its entirety and create that experience for audiences and students across the world.
"We don't rise to the level of our expectation, we fall to the level of our training."
How does your work help society?
Of all the types of intelligence we exercise every day, music helps us access and heal our emotions. Having music in our day to day life, can bring a multitude of positive benefits. Through my years with music, I see that music helps you develop a strong sense of yourself, helps you build your self-confidence, thereby facilitating your social skills, a safe emotional outlet, and of course, the best stress buster!
Most people don't pursue music beyond a hobby because although they are talented, they are unsatisfied with their current level of singing, lack confidence or hold a fear of judgement. In my opinion, satisfaction is the starting point to improvement. With vocal training, the results should feel rewarding, organically nudging you towards improvement. My goal as a teacher is to help you with the simplest solutions to any problem, so that you can start performing confidently as soon as possible. I've always firmly believed, 'Happiness Breeds Growth!'
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of & why?
One name - Gilles Denizot. Words can't express the magnitude of impact he has had on my life! Since my first session with him, his mystery has invariably drawn me towards him. The vastness of knowledge and insight he brings to each class, his razor-sharp intellect and attention to detail, technical wizardry, sense of humour, infectious passion, sincerity, rather everything about him, has always left me in awe and at a loss of words. He is an ideal teacher, a true guru who dispels darkness.
Besides music, he walked me through numerous aspects that surround music but are equally important in becoming a wholesome musician. It is everything he stands for as a teacher that makes me want to become my very own unique version of myself. Undoubtedly, it is the comfort of my teacher's love and friendship coupled with his armored trust in me that empowers me to become the best version of myself.
This blooming was primed by Surekha Joshi ma'am during my budding years. She introduced the thought of appreciating one's versatility at an age when I was touristing across genres in music. She enabled my growth as a musician and never let me be constrained to one genre.
Tell us about your hobbies outside teaching.
Innately, I'm a performer! My work on social media platforms is only a glimpse, if you want to truly experience my artistry, you must always come see me perform live!
I occasionally dabble with song writing, poetry, music production, reading, sports, etc. I've always been intrigued by acting, and may tap into it sometime soon! Currently, fitness is my new obsession. After all, singing is an athletic sport, isn't it? (laughs)
Do you have an anecdote to tell us about your student or professional life?
