I've been learning western classical guitar for 11 years now at CSM under Biplav Singh or better known Biplav Sir as I've been calling him for all these years. This school is the best place for music lovers to learn as it has excellent faculty and also provides proper exposure to its students through recitals, concerts and master classes. The non-teaching staff is really polite and helpful as well. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher as Biplav sir has been more of a friend and a guide and he's my favorite classical guitarist as well. I play with the Guitar Ensemble as well which has made me better...and the monthly classical guitar concert is like a gathering of like-minded guitar lovers and is an absolute treat. My journey at CSM has been a very long and musical one."Music begins where words reach their limit of expression"
