Koustav Kundu - Violin Teacher for beginners and intermediate players in online & offline modes

Methodology

With over 12 years stage experience, and almost equal teaching experience, I firmly believe that for playing the Violin, right techniques are the most important, and they form the backbone of one's learning. I believe that a teacher must be aware of the good techniques, with possession of the necessary teaching skills.

And then comes interpretation of music, along with other necessary intricacies like communication, phrasing, dynamics and intonation!

Wish you a very good luck for getting success in your dream of learning music.

Kaustav sir is an amazing teacher with vast knowledge in music and various instruments. I am learning Violin from him, being completely new to the instrument. He is very cordial, patient, and I can approach him anytime. This is, according to me, how an ideal teacher should be.

I never thought that Music theory would be so much enjoyable. I have started to love music theory as well due to his active participation in teaching the western music theory. I owe you, sir

I introduce myself as one of Koustav's colleagues! He has always been passionate about music, and specifically about violin. We used to discuss a lot about music in the earlier days, and I remember that he always surprised me with his grip of knowledge on this particular field. And for violin, I don't need to say anything as I have visited almost all of his stage performances. Best wishes, my dear friend

I will share my experience on Koustav Sir's Violin class, which I have been taking for almost 1 year now. An amazing person by heart, he is an exceptional tutor. He always makes sure that my violin and bow holding postures are right.

I was basically poor in understanding the rhythms at the beginning, but he has been helping me a lot regarding that. I appreciate this optimistic way of his teaching. Thank you

I am writing this about my music theory classes from Koustav, who is not only my teacher, but also my friend. Needless to say, he is extremely hard working, and along with his talent on the Violin, he is also a certified Western Music Theory teacher from Trinity College, London. Kudos to you for helping me to excel in Music theory. Thank you..

At the beginning, I was not sure to learn music online. But during COVID pandemic, I started to learn the instrument online from Koustav (da). The learning has been like a fresh air for me, specifically when it comes from such a helpful, knowledgeable and an artist like Koustav (da). Best wishes for him in all his endeavors!!
