Was able to learn much of the violin just by some master classes and having a few fairly good teachers here in India. Also the fact that I am a professional engineer and doing music also is some sort of an achievement for me. Truthfully I would love to just do music since its what I love the most.

What made you decide to pursue classical music? / Pourquoi avez-vous choisi une formation en musique classique ?
Classical music requires continuous hard work, patience and perseverance. These to me are the qualities, if pursued can make you happy with yourself and a better musician. At one time I did have a rock band and played the drums, somehow that didn't give me personal satisfaction as the violin did.
