Our kids started classical vocal lessons at Samspra with Shri Ananda Nadayogi in the summer of 2017 when they were 7 & 5. It is a true blessing and the kids are so excited to learn the art of Carnatic music. We are so glad our kids' musical journey started with such an esteemed teacher in a great setting.
