The Academy

Sitar lessons at the Academy are offered under the guidance of sitar maestro Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan, lovingly known as Ustadji by his students. Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan has dedicated considerable time and energy during the past decade in training young students in India, the US, the UK, and Canada. While traveling in North America, he is joined by students from around the world who seek the opportunity to attend his concerts and to participate in a series of unique sitar workshops and sitar lessons exploring the traditions and performance of Indian Classical Music. His students include musicians of all levels, ages, nationalities and religions. Learning sitar under Ustadji is an experience that is both traditional and innovative.
