Background

I am an independent guitarist/musician/singer-songwriter from Bangalore, with more than 6 years of experience in guitar playing. I am Trinity Grade 8 certified guitarist. I play both acoustic and electric guitar.

My journey as a musician started just as a hobby when I
first came to Bangalore and started my first band
"The Indus Valley Project". I was the lead singer and
rhythm guitarist for the band. What time and experience
taught me over the years is priceless but along the way I
also felt the need to grow as a musician to take up music
professionally. Hence, I started studying music. I took
private guitar classes to support myself financially, while I
also wrote my Trinity grades for guitar playing.

- Started my first semi-professional original rock band
"The Indus Valley Project" | November 2010-December 2014
- Started Teaching Guitar | From 2015
- A part time musician | Until March 2017

Akshay sir is passionate about music and equally passionate about teaching it.
He has been been tutoring my child and her friends for over an year. He gives instructions in a very easy to understand way. His classes are fun and kids look forward to his classes .
Akshay sir is very approachable. Music stimulates the minds positively. The earlier the kids learn music or an instrument, the better.

I would highly recommend learning guitar from him.

Review from Akshay

QUESTION 01 | 06
Tell us more about your subject. How did you develop an interest in this field?
Akshay — I am a music educator by profession and I teach Acoustic Guitar playing to my students.
From my young days I was keenly interested in music, but never thought of taking it up as a career option. I got introduced to guitar playing only in graduation, and I must say I got really fond of it henceforth. I picked up basic chords to support my singing and over a period of time, started playing advanced guitar songs purely because of my passion for music. But down the line I realized that I want to make this as my profession too. So, I took up Trinity Grade exams for guitar playing as they are really popular and successfully cleared them. Since I started my guitar journey fairly late, I get really motivated to want to help young kids learn guitar early in their lives. That's my goal.
QUESTION 02 | 06
What or who is the motivation behind you choosing to teach & why?
Akshay — As i said, I always wish I could have picked up guitar playing early in my life. So the thought motivates me to help young kids learn guitar as early as they can. Because you can spend a lifetime mastering this instrument.
QUESTION 03 | 06
How does your work help society?
Akshay — I think music in general influences everyone in a positive way. It's such a great thing to bring the gift of music in someone's life. So, basically what I am trying to say is that I am sort of helping the world become more musical.
QUESTION 04 | 06
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of & why?
Akshay — Ah... If I had to pick a role model for my kinda role, it would definitely be Justin Sandercoe from Justinguitar. I think he is honest, keeps things simple and he does believe in teaching guitar. I love how he has been giving such amazing free guitar lessons over the period of time!
QUESTION 05 | 06
Tell us about your hobbies outside teaching.
Akshay — I am a Singer, Songwriter, and I love to cook when I am free.
QUESTION 06 | 06
Do you have an anecdote to tell us about your student or professional life?
Akshay — So, I was an IT professional a few years back and I quit all that desk job comfort over my guitar. I want to personally become an expert in guitar playing and also along the way help people learn it. That's my way of life now.
