What students are saying

“Vinod Krishnan is an excellent music teacher and my son has been learning from him for the past one year, His classes are not just about teaching music but also the math (yes he gives some math home-works related to music too which amazed me all the time). Would recommend his classes to anyone who is looking for learning the music in the proper way in its purest form.”

Gokul Muralidharan

“My son has been learning Carnatic music lessons from Vinod for the past 5+ years and he is currently learning varnam and Krithi in parallel. We are very fortunate that Vinod is our very own MN gem that’s located here and he has opened up our kids to Cleveland festival which is one of a kind. Lots to learn from him as a guru. Challenges the kids and brings out the best in them! Again we are all blessed to have him in MN and our kids are fortunate to learn and grow with him”

Archana Balasubramaniam

“He is a very good teacher and explains the intricacies of a raga very precisely. His instructions are very clear and easy to follow. He gives a very detailed feedback about our singing. His classes have rekindled my interest in Carnatic music and keeps me interested in learning more.”

Deepashri Hebalikar

“My son is really fortunate to have found excellent guru, mentor and role model as Vinod. He has been learning Carnatic music from Vinod for over past two and half years and he is currently learning varnam and Krithi in parallel. Vinod’s teaching style is extremely detailed oriented, disciplined and thought provoking. He has the skill to challenge the kids in unique way (rare in modern education system) not only to bring out their best singing talent but to make sure they are consistent with their singing practice! He has maintained the high quality of music education consistent even with his virtual classes. We are truly blessed to have him as a educator for our son and proving it to us that music truly is not bound by a specific language.”
