I am a mechanical engineer by profession with an overwhelming passion for music since childhood. Shri. MG Hegde who hails from Kumta and a student of Dr. Ashok Huggannanavar was my first music Guru, under whom i got trained in Bhansuri. I had an opportunity to learn Carnatic music for a short stint under famous violinist Sri.Madhusudhan from Bangalore. I consider myself as a new born in the singing world and my passion for music is helping me to take small forward steps year by year.
