About The Shriram Iyer Music Academy: This course will be taught by the Shriram Iyer Music Academy - which represents Bollywood playback singer Shriram Iyer and his academy of music teachers who will be teaching the students who sign up for this course but these lessons will be monitored and examined in close detail by the playback singer himself. Founded in the year 2010 by Bollywood playback singer and mentor Shriram Iyer, The Shriram Iyer Music Academy focuses on nurturing upcoming vocal talent in various genres of Indian music like Indian classical, semi-classical, Bollywood, Sufi, and fusion music. The two instructors who would be teaching on ipassio from the Academy would be Vibha Kale and Nilesh. Nilesh is an Indian Singer, received his classical training from the late Pandit Shivananda Patil. Nilesh loves teaching music and performs in private shows as a hobby. Nilesh is a working executive and passionately dedicates his time to teaching light classical music.

Nilesh belongs to a musical family and is a father of 2 grown-up kids, both pursuing full-time careers in music under Nilesh’s guidance. Nilesh has performed live with Shriram Iyer on numerous occasions all over the world. Vibha’s earlier professional direction was law. But she decided to quit her profession as a lawyer and pursue music. She is a stage artist and has been performing regularly for events and concept shows for over 5 years.

These online classes will be taken by Shriram as well as experienced teachers who have been personally mentored by him. While signing up and opting for the free meeting sessions, students are requested to submit a video recording of themselves singing so that the faculty could derive the level at which they are and where they could improve. This would help as the instructors would be accordingly assigned.

Teacher's performance bits for reference


Traditionally, Hindu Hindustani classical music practitioners are referred to as Pandit and Muslim practitioners as Ustad. Religious neutrality has been an essential aspect of Hindustani music since Sufi times; this is why Ustads could sing compositions in praise of Hindu deities and vice versa.
