Maha Vidwan, AcharyaSri Pudukkotai Krishna Murthy

I am blessed to gain this divine knowledge through the expert guidance and blessings of Veena Vidwan Sri Krishna murthy Iyer, Sri Duddu Seetha Ramaiah, Maha vidwan Acharya Sri Pudukkotai Krishna murthy for my Veena Instrumental and Dr. Jaishree Prasad, Prof (retd) Saraswathi Vasudev and Dr. Yerramillli Ramaprabha for my vocal training. My humble salutations to them for their kindness and relentless training in honing my innate skills and gaining expertise on Veena instrumental and Vocal intricacies.


I am fortunate for the continued support and advice from Dr. Yerramilli Ramaprabha. My erudition greatly relies on her repertoire, extensive and at times astonishing, on the compositions of Dikshitar, Thyagaraja, Annamayya, Tumu Narasimha Das, Traditional songs, Bhajans, Thillanas and Padams along with a host of presentations on musical education. I am very proud and honored for being one of her disciples in furthering skills toward mastering.
