"I quite recently started my carnatic Vocal and Guitar classes with Bmusician. I have had online classes before with other online teachers but what makes Bmusician different is the way in which classes are conducted. Teachers are are very dedicated and organized. The class room is one of most innovative way of video calling facilities with screen recording etc . The video and audio clarity is much better than skype or facetime ID. Happy to be part of this team and hope one day i will contribute in return ."
" I have been using Bmusician for the last month and a half and I am learning guitar under Shylu. I have a lot of positive feedback for you guys. In terms of the website, it is very user-friendly, and I love the ability to reschedule classes easily. The Guru Notes Timeline is also a brilliant touch, and it clearly summarizes my weak points to practice more, as well as shows me how much I have improved over the last month. The classes have worked perfectly online, and the fact that I don't need to plug my electric guitar around to work has been a great bonus. Apart from the website side, Guitar Shylu has been a great teacher - very patient and explains the concepts beautifully :)"
"My kid has worked over an hour on Korvai composition techniques every single day in the last week with so much passion, without me insisting her to do so. I never ever thought that she will be drawn so much into Konokkol. This would never have been possible without Bmusician and mainly her Guru. Prapancham Surendran. Huge Huge thanks to him and Bmusician. "
"I feel the bmusician online platform is Well intentioned, Well planned, Well designed for the learning needs of those aspiring to be musicians. I feel the development of this bmusician platform is a right decision, made for the right reason... surely thousands will benefit from it... - student and user of the bmusician platform"
"Excellent Guru, Has lot of patience and teaches very well. He understands the student very well and he keeps up pace of the class balanced without making the class boring or making the student tired. His fingering exercises are really good, he makes them very easy to understand. Very few have such talents and he is definitely one of them. Bmusician keeps the classes so organised with class recordings and High quality video and audio. Fortunate to have a Guru like him and part of Bmusician."
" I look forward to class day so much every week. Every classroom recording is a treasure!"
" I feel so lucky to have found this online carnatic music academy for my 9 year old son. He is learning Guitar under Mr. Abhishek Varadarajan. Abhishek is a really good, encouraging, friendly guru. Also, the platform is user friendly. The support staff are prompt and very responsible. Very Very great oppurtunity for people who are passionate about learning carnatic classical music and out of reach to proper resources."
