About the Teacher: Adept at playing different styles of music, be it Blues, Rock, Jazz, Funk, or Sufi, Sanjay’s heart lies with classic rock. His knowledge about music, especially the guitar, has been honed through 3 decades of dedication. 

Inspired by legends such as Carlos Santana, David Gilmour, Eddie Van Halen, Gary Moore and Joe Satriani, Sanjay has been a member of umpteen bands through the 80s, when rock culture was still in its nascent stage in the country. 

Having mastered the guitar, Sanjay now dedicates his efforts to imparting the treasure trove of knowledge he has accumulated through the years. Sanjay’s intent to share his best with his students and everyone else keen to learn about the guitar helped him develop this digital tutoring module for guitar. Sanjay currently oversees his guitar tutoring firm ‘Stringdom’ as a mentor.
