My name is Suman Vanamali. I live in Maryland, USA. I developed interest in learning flute few years ago.I learnt Veena in my childhood, so wanted to explore a new instrument and flute seemed very different and interesting. Its very soothing to listen to flute music. So I began my search for a good tutor. Venugopal sir's name was highly recommended by one of my relatives, who was a student of him. He has a very systematic and planned approach to teaching. He was very patient with me, considering the fact that I was not able to put in enough hours of practice with my busy schedule. He taught me the minute technicalities and soon I was very comfortable playing it. Also , he is flexible with class times.
Soon I progressed from C to G#. I started improvisations on raag Hamsadhvani and then Yaman. It gives a sense of satisfaction and calms my mind whenever I practice flute. I would highly recommend Venugopal Sir for flute lessons.
