Sitar classes return to Arts School


It’s the return of sitar to Arts School! For three weeks Gaurav Mazumdar will teach a series of two hour sessions at The Cornerstone Building, Liverpool Hope University.

The teacher – Gaurav Mazumdar

Gaurav Mazumdar is one of the most sought-after and versatile musicians of the present generation. Having mastered the violin, Gaurav went on to further his musical ability by learning the sitar . It was the late Pandit Ravi Shankar who discovered him and encouraged him to take up the sitar, and under this legend’s tutelage and guidance, Gaurav has become a most accomplished sitarist.
