1. Tell us more about your background and journey.

I started singing during my schooling, but I have learnt music only during my college days and literally, I loved my voice and music. From my childhood, I had a great love for music but I did not thought of learning it professionally.

Then during my college days, I completely felt music as a very important part of my life and decided to learn it in a professional way by joining in a music school. Day by day after I started learning music professionally, I felt that “Life is like music, it must be composed by ear, feeling and instinct and not by rule.


2. When did you first decide you wanted to pursue music and how did you start?

During college days, I felt I really have a talent in Singing so I felt why not I try to pursue it and there is where I started. After I started learning music only I realized that music is a feeling of joy, music is a feeling of celebration, it is feeling of love, it is a feeling of being separated and finally music is everything we just have to feel it.


3. Who is your favorite singer and why?

My most favorite singers are Shreya Ghoshal and Chitra. I love those two singers especially because I love singing melody songs more than any type of songs in the world and they both are Queens of melody and they’ve incredible voice as well.

Shreya Ghoshal is my all-time favorite because she is not only a singer, apart from it she is a successful composer and a music producer. She has received four National Film Awards, four Kerala State Film Awards, two Tamil Nadu State Film Awards, seven Film Fare Awards including six for Best Female Playback Singer and ten Film fare Awards South.

She has recorded songs for film music and albums in various Indian languages and has established herself as a leading playback singer of Indian cinema.She aspired to become a playback singer from an early age and she started learning music from the age of four itself and also she became a playback singer at her early age of sixteen itself.

She is truly a great inspiration for me and for the upcoming future young singers too. To say it in simple words she is role model in my music journey.


4. Can you throw some light on opportunities one gets as a singer?

If interested you will find so much of opportunities there are so many social media to showcase our talent now a days. Most people dream that “how to become a musician”. Someone has the God gifted talent and someone get the talent by hard working in this field. It is very tough to become a professional musician.

Because music is performing art. It is one of the arts, which require more attention and concentration.

To become a good professional musician the most important thing one must follow is nothing but, Practice, practice and just practice! It is not the easiest to learn. It is one of the challenging fields of the professional education.

If you still want to find the career in music, get the instrument of your choice, learn the music theory, play with them and practice always.

5. Is format training required or can one train themselves purely on the basis of talent?

From my point of view - Basics of Singing is definitely needed after that one can develop and train their voices on their own!!!


6. What piece of advice would you like to give to future and aspiring artists?

My piece of advice that I would like to give to future aspiring artists is nothing but Practice seriously which makes a man perfect so continue your passion wherever you are!! As the saying of the great legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar, youngsters shouldn’t only believe that they can create magic by holding a mike.

They singers without training in classical music, whether Indian or Western, are useless. Knowing the taal and sur of the song is most important.


7. Which is your favorite book and why?

My most favorite book is “Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain”. This book is my favorite because with the same trademark compassion and erudition the author (Oliver Sacks) brought to The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks explores the place music occupies in the brain and how it affects the human condition.

In Musicophilia, he shows us a variety of what he calls “musical mis-alignments.” Among them: a man struck by lightning who suddenly desires to become a pianist at the age of forty-two; an entire group of children with Williams syndrome, who are hyper musical from birth; people with “amusia,” to whom a symphony sounds like the clattering of pots and pans; and a man whose memory spans only seven seconds-for everything but music.

Illuminating, inspiring, and utterly unforgettable, Musicophilia is Oliver Sacks’ latest masterpiece.
