With performing arts especially classical forms, the teacher’s role is not just one of teaching basics of the art form, but more importantly, to motivate them to go one step further. In every sense of the word, Sinchana Murthy has been doing that with my daughter for the last 6 years now. With young kids, teachers need to be patient and be able to adapt to their varying focus levels and interests. Sinchana Murthy has all that and more. I wish her and her music and arts school, the very best of luck.
