"...She’s very good at listening and is patient and can work with any level student. Also, living in separate countries and studying via zoom nothing gets lost in translation. It’s like you’re in the same room with her. I highly recommend studying with Syamesvari!..."

"I love and look forward to all of my lessons with Syamesvari! She is such a great teacher, very patient, and makes learning mridanga so accessible. I feel really grateful to get to train with her. Radhe Radhe "
"We are really so fortunate to get lessons from you, the techniques and the way you teach is so wonderful and made it easy to learn, thank you so much for being here to guide us and show us what should be our mood and how we can serve with our mridanga nicely"
"After starting to learn mrdanga by myself I decided to commit to regular lessons. Learning with Syamesvari is the best!
Beeing a kīrtan teacher by myself I appreciate her high standards considering technique and playing hatsadhanas. Also she finds balance to push you to the border of your comfort zone and maximal improvement. Her exitement about teaching radiates through Zoom and she is constantly uplifting her students: "You can do it!"
"I’ve always been wanting to play the mridanga for kirtans. I learned one beat but was not able to progress further, and actually gave up the idea of being able to play. Then I came across Syamesvari and I decided to give it another try!
She is genuinely in love with kirtan and that comes out when she teaches. She gives us the most value she can from her classes every time. Not only does she correct my mistakes, she also understands where the mistakes are coming from and teaches / encourages accordingly!
I’m very grateful and I’m truly enjoying my progress! I wish I started this many years ago"
"Studying with Syamesvari has been like a miracle. As a drummer, I felt the need to learn mridanga as an offering. Just after waiting weeks to get my drum from India I came upon Syamesvari’s Instagram. Reached out to her and before I knew it, I found myself as a student. She’s very good at listening and is patient and can work with any level student. Also, living in separate countries and studying via zoom nothing gets lost in translation. It’s like you’re in the same room with her. I highly recommend studying with Syamesvari!"
"When I first picked up a Mridanga I didn’t even know how to hold it but Syamesvari was very patient with me and I’m amazed that I can now play along in a kirtan and sing at the same time. Syamesvari has been the first music teacher I’ve had on a regular basis and it’s really showed me the value of having a teacher to point out where you’re going wrong and to keep me motivated in my practice. She is an excellent teacher and I’d definitely recommend her if you’re thinking of learning to play Mridanga."
"I had this belief that I could never b
good at Mridanga, because I've always
struggled so much with taal in Kirtan.
But honestly, having classes with
Syamesvari changed everything
he classes are super light and fun , but she also pushes you when needed, or when she thinks you can take more"
"I was the guy who thought he didn't need a teacher, who could learn everything by himself. When I met Syamesvari she opened my mind in a few days and showed me how great the world of Mridanga is. The Philosophy, techniques etc... In few weeks I learned rhythms that I always considered impossible to learn"
"I'm so blessed to have Syamesvari as my teacher,. She Knows just how to keep me focused and encouraged with my playing whilst always helping me improve my techniques. I feel that Syamesvari really cares so much about my learning and is always so happy seeing my progression."
"I was skeptical with my set of anxieties in approaching a mridanga teacher. To my good fortune I found Syamesvari and fell in love with her flawless technique and effortless style. I feel grateful to learn from her and look forward to next lessons."
"I have known Syamesvari since we were children and I have always admired her very much, now I am having the opportunity to be her student, I am very honored"
"Syamesvari is an amazing mridanga player and teacher. Her class is systematic and very easy to understand. She picks us what I'm doing wrong and gives me a lot of tips in order for me to progress."
