Dear Guruji, Pranam. I joined AAROHEE class on 3rd May 14, I loved the class and I couldn't stop myself to go thru all the archived classes during the weekends. Thanks a lot for providing the most required and important lessons which are the most fundamental for the classical vocal student. I am now very hopeful that all the classes I am going to go thru subsequently will definitely transform my singing and my life. Thanks a lot. With best regards, Ramakant

Ms. Rani Thompson on 12th Feb, 2013 Respected Guruji and Shrutinandan Family members, Sader Namaskaar. My desire to write long, took a bit too long for me to write. The news for another live class so soon was quite a surprise. Then it was a shock "wow! It is going to be 4 in the morning!!" But I always thought that getting up early in the morning is the only way I can fit music practice in my life. I thought, "so here is the opportunity now." I woke up two times in the night (out of excitement I guess) before I heard the alarm, got ready and here it was the class. I wish I know the person who was teaching earlier. It was so clear, emphasis on every minute things and the students there are soooo young and soooo talented. For a moment I felt jealous. I wish I had a teacher or Guru like this when I was young. The class knowledge was so deep that I wondered if I would ever be able to learn all this and sing like them, sitting soooo far away. As the time passed I got more and more involved and my confidence level grew too. At the end you told everybody, "there is no word called 'No' if you are determined to do something." I am just holding on to this. I am not sure how much I was able to pick up from that class, but certainly it boosted my desire to learn more and be more serious about music. I think duration of the class was another factor which took me upto another level, like meditation, focussing on one thing only for a while and then it certainly feel like gaining a lot. I know it is a lot of work for online team, but I would request you to please broadcast more of these classes, if you can. Young students there also encourage (or perhaps challenge :-) ) who are already far ahead of me. At the end, I would like to extend my sincere thanks for giving us the opportunity to view this class. I hope that you keep continuing this class. Regards, Rani
