CLASSICAL MUSIC CLASSES - Theethipalayam [rural area] - Coimbatore District
Testimonial for the year 2012
''At first I thought my master will start with basic grammar in classical music. I joined through my aunt in this class. I did not think that I will sing in 5 concerts. Our classes help us to learn many great classical songs in easy way. I am having a good idea about South Indian classical music which is very new to our families and locality where I live. I have come across my shyness and stage fear also. I am confident in what I do. I can relax my mind in positive way through my music. I always remember public's appreciation when I sang the famous song ''Kurai ondrum Illai''. Our parents are happy about this. I wish to continue the sessions. We are blesses by God to learn under Dr.Madeswaran from Uni5 trust''- Nithin - Grade 7, Feb 2013
''I thank Mr.Ganesan and Ms.Jeyanthi for making our rural locality to get this opportunity through Sakthi trust. Baby Prathika inspired me through her musical talent and I got this initiation. I am proud about my 5 concerts which has made public to recognize me. I have kept the sacred lamp gift given by public and thank CAC for providing a very good teacher. I wish to perform more.
