I believe you have come to the right space if you are looking for expertise in DJing, Music Production, Music Theory, Mixing & Mastering or any other electronic music related field.
I say this because I come from a strong educational background in music as I have studied music theory from Trinity College, London, successfully finished a Music Industry Essential Course from NYU-TISCH, New York and have been teaching music production and djing from past 7 years.
Hopeful to hear from you, happy producing !
Hi, I am Shailender, Working as BM in Bank of Baroda,
Kartik Sir is a super teacher of music production, his teacher style is best in my sense because i did not know anything about music production, but Kartik sir kept on clearing my concepts and after ongoing 15 session, i feel like i can produce any type of music, whether hip hop, edm, rap, r n b, etc
He is beginner's angel to professional's mentor,
All I can say, being working as Branch Manager feels good, but achieving and hardworking for my dreams is some thing amazing and Kartik sir helping me out
Atlast to all folks, dont waste time, enroll for Kartik Sir, he will definitely help u to fullfill the dream of music producer.
Amazing sessions with Kartik sir, A beginner also can understand easily, how he describes the music theory and working process on ableton Live is just crisp and clear. As A Live performer I learned a lot of things how to work on ableton live in a Live show. He teaches very basics things to most advanced level on ableton Live.
Kartik Sir is a very good teacher. I had learned DJing from him. He is an amazing mentor and is also a friend in need. He explains the basics very well and also monitors the progress very closely. If someone is serious to learn music whether its DJing or music production then he is the best one should go to. Even after the course is completed, he is always reachable and is always there to assist if you need his help. It was a very good experience learning music from him.
Such a nice person
Always helps me out
Never seen such a patience & acceptance level both in a person
Pls to have u my guru
kartik sir is one of the best teacher i came across. his technique of teaching is super easy and interesting. Will highly recommend everyone. Thanku sir
Kartik sir has been like a rock throughout my music production journey. He’s always available for the student even after the course finishes which tells me that he’s serious about teaching music and loves to impart knowledge. The way he helps me with my doubts and explains the reasoning behind every step that we take while producing music is commendable.
Moreover I am glad that he could tell me the importance of music theory alongside music production because that’s what elevated my music production skills.
Highly recommend for anyone who’s looking for beginner to advanced music production and music theory classes. ️️️️️
Teachers come in all shapes and sizes , but when it comes to electronic music , I had this unending desire to meet someone who could turn into a deserving teacher of mine , not only because it costed some money but for someone to be knowledgable and guide for your errors is a rare and delicate task....
So it isn’t magic and I have no knowledge of notes and music at all , and I am still not a musician , but a tutor needs to identify your potential and push you till a point where s/he can.
Once you have paid , and taken on the task, you cannot go back and amend it. But I was so fortunate to have found Kartik as my prof / teacher / friend and guide who came with an immense knowledge musical notes , what notes are happy , which notes are sad...why do you have to certain standard processes while processing music...why / why / why....he wouldn’t be tired of answering my curiosity and teach the whereabouts....and time...:he would assist me during physical classes and answer my calls when I would be working on my project (even wrote notes for dumbhead like me).
A true motivator with never giving-up attitude over his students , he is a teacher you would feel many a times who can break the final scale of music by leaving teaching and just being a pure musician ....but you don’t have answers for people when their mind hinges towards nobility of teaching and making others capable...:that’s the story of Kartik...a young and hard worked musician who has learnt everything by constantly investing in himself and learning step by step theoretically (no shortcuts) of being an unquestionable teacher.
He is eccentric, and Tell me who is not about a subject one is aware and knowledgeable of, but passion in comes in all forms and in this case this one for any student will be a super fun ride , and knowledgable one with this well
Deserving Super Prof ! I hope still Kartik teaches and goes global with his music not just teaching ! Good luck and warm wishes !!
Because Kartik sir is very helpful and very Frank . He is always behave like a friend to the students
Would totally recommend him, the level of patience and expertise with which he imparts his own experiences is commendable, really helps in understanding the sound better. Glad I chose him as my teacher!

Tell us more about your subject. How did you develop an interest in this field?
Getting into music is just like a deep dive in an ocean and this is what exactly happened with me. While I was growing up I was highly influenced by electronic music no matter what genre it was. I was listening to nu-disco, techno, house, east coast, west coast everything that I could find in tapes or CDs. All this made me google things and I came across my first D.A.W (Digital Audio Workstation) Fl Studio, started out by myself figuring out how the software works was a pain but I continued since I was enjoying it, alongside I was getting into DJing using softwares because I felt like to keep the music production scene going or support it I had to perform live which I did for a couple of years.
From that point till now there has been nothing that pulled me back and I just expanded myself as an artist, producer, DJ and an educator.
What or who is the motivation behind you choosing to teach & why?
While I was teaching myself music production using some online sources which is like a go to for everyone who starts out all by themselves I realised that there was no good or decent school for music production in Delhi and I couldn't find someone who could teach me music production on Ableton Live. I felt like no one was able to give the right information about where to start from and questions like if learning an instrument would be helpful or music theory could give it a push and how to make money after producing, such questions were either ignored or unanswered which motivated me to do better if it ever comes to teaching.
Now whenever I get an inquiry for any music related course I try to answer all the questions that a student has, try to understand their needs and expectations and provide clarity, provide the counselling that I could never get from anyone when I started out.
How does your work help society?
Music is a creative field which means that it is super stressful. Some students end up in a creative block and unable to write music which makes them demotivated or either feel like a failure. My job in this situation becomes very crucial since I have to either pull them out of that rabbit hole or never let them get into one. Seeing young producers chasing their dreams, pushing themselves and supporting them every day as a friend, mentor and teacher is what makes me feel like I have an important job in this society in which I should never fail.
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of & why?
I was in a stage where I was about to give up because my music was sounding either monotonous, lifeless or similar to everyone else and I was facing difficulties in finding my own persona as an artist, this is where my music theory teacher came into the picture. He was the one who showed me a new world of music. I was getting western classical music knowledge as well as the history of music which helped me in pushing my limits and I could get some fresh ideas going in my head. He would help me in playing piano which later turned out to be really helpful for recording my own chord progressions and get that human touch in my music. My music composition skills improved drastically and with his guidance I was able to turn my 2 bar melodies into 8 and 16 bars beautiful pieces.
Tell us about your hobbies outside teaching.
I have always been fond of travelling to peaceful locations which made me develop immense love for the mountains, every year I try to visit some offbeat location in the mountains with my Ukulele.
Musical instruments really inspire and attract me so I love playing piano, guitar and uke which pushes me to try learning new instruments. Apart from all of this I love to design content for an Instagram page by the name @musicproducersarena which is for all upcoming producers where I keep posting informative posts that help and inspire fellow producers.
Do you have an anecdote to tell us about your student or professional life?
The anecdote that I can think of is from my college days and as I recall it I remember my professors getting irritated with me because I would skip their lectures for my electronic band in college where my job was to provide backing tracks/accompaniment to my other band members. I feel all my life I have given more importance to music than anything else which was clearly visible due to the difference between my college grades and my music grades, I was getting distinction in my western classical music examinations and would just manage to pass my Economics hons. semester examinations.
