Guru Ram Das
Mata Mandir Singh is the musical director of Guru Ram Das Kirtan Academy. He teaches in-depth music lessons via Zoom and is now teaching in-person also through the auspices of the Guru Ram Das Academy.
Mata Mandir Singh is creative and masterful in tailoring the below techniques and skills to each student as per their interest and skill level from beginners to advanced players. He has studied and practiced the Indian music system for more than thirty years. He teaches Raag and Taal (melody and rhythm) and teaches Tabla, Harmonium, Rabab and indian Vocal practice.
He also teaches how to accompany kirtan using various non-traditional stringed instruments such as mandolin and Cittern. Although the system is classically based we practice and play shabds and mantra more in the folk and semi classical range rather than strictly classical practice.
