Explore music with Prasant.
A senior disciple of Carnatic saxophone pioneer Padmashri Dr. Kadri Gopalnath, Prasant has over 20 years teaching experience and is known as a dynamic and meditative performer of Carnatic music on the saxophone.
Prasant learned Carnatic music on saxophone by visiting, traveling and living with his teacher as well as performing alongside him starting in 1996. He also studied jazz with prominent saxophonists at the University of Southern California. This unique blend of experience allows for a wide perspective on music. He brings an approach to music that is completely holistic and fully personal for each student. Prasant’s students are equally at home passing school ensemble auditions and performing at local temple and Carnatic music festivals (aradhanas).
Music practice can be a transformative exploration of the highest order allowing for total happiness and freedom in all aspects of life.
Prasant teaches music locally in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as over Skype and Zoom to students all over the world. Students of all levels and backgrounds are welcome.
