Thank You!! For enriching my goal and widening my horizons. Without you, many aspects in my music would have been unexplored”Wherever I’m, whatever good exists in me is very much because of Pt. Sanjay Patki Sir.Said By Dr. Priya Mai

Pt. Sanjay Patki recognizes each student’s strengths and exploit it in his own ways. He’s very shrewd in estimating each student’s level. He begins the lessons on how to fill an avartan, then how to make it aesthetic, and further how to make it expressive. Even though he is a traditionalist, he would tell us not to get bogged down in grammar and gharanas, to absorb as many influences as possible. He tells everything in concise, precise and extremely analytical manner. In these senses, he’s also a very modernist.”

He teaches all students to stick to swaras, managing Hankar Practice and teaches various areas of voice modulation practices to be used in vocal classical singing, light music and many other singing styles.
