Shurajit is an expert in the venerable tradition of Carnatic music. He takes care to make sure that I'm doing things correctly, whether it is sight reading, pronunciation, counting talam and, of course, vocal rendition. He will never cut corners! Yet all is done in a spirit of joy and respect for the student whatever their cultural background or level. As an adult student, born in the US, who had no prior experience with Carnatic vocals, I find that the challenge of learning this rich and complex music is exciting and fun. I have deep respect for the spiritual traditions with which it is infused. Shurajit is an excellent communicator, he cares about his students, and he enjoys teaching. I highly recommend Shurajit as your first call if you are thinking about lessons for your child or for yourself.

Shurajit Gopal is by far the best Carnatic vocalist and teacher in South Carolina, perhaps the best in the Southeast of US. I live in Columbia, SC but I drive to Greenville every weekend to learn Carnatic vocal music from him. Although he offers Skype lessons for remote learners, face 2 face lessons is invaluable and worth every bit of it. Shurajit gives his all to a dedicated, devoted student and takes a very personal interest in the student's technical development. He makes sure that the student never goes off key and that he/she maintains clockwork precision on Talam. Shurajit makes learning Sangathi-variations so much fun. Sometimes when the variations don't land on the beat as it is supposed to, he devices creative methods so students are able to pick it up. It's like the American Idiom "there are multiple ways to skin a cat". Furthermore, I admire Shurajit because he is very personable and approachable. If you desire to be an "authentic" carnatic singer, @shurajit is the place to go.

my daughter and I had classical training for 4 years and really enjoyed his lessons, we learned a lot of songs and learned how to sing, my daughter being young benefited more and every time she auditioned for a musical , she ended up with the lead role!. I highly recommend anyone who wants to sing or wants to train their voice to consider him, the kids love him and so do the adults -he is a great teacher and wonderful person to know!
