    I am going to join the Parikrama School of music. its in hauz khas village. Sonam Sherpa of Parikrama runs it . I hope its cool . neone knows. it charges 250 rs per class and its a group class of 3-4 students.

    Ain't 250 a class a bit too much??? Maybe it'll be good, since Sonam is running it. But it just seems a lot to me.

    I think he's overcharging.

    But I suppose Calcutta has always been rather cheap. I go to (arguably) one of the best guitarists and teachers in India and he charges me 400 rupees a month.

    i havent heard a lot of his form an opinion.
    but i read one of his interviews..and he seemed to be a knowledgeble guy...
    few of my friends from calcutta have a very high opinion of him..

    tejas ..........

    Yeah, I get charged 600 bucks a month. 250 a class seems a lot to me, but I guess thats how it is over there.

    Get hold of some of his stuff if you can...though it's damn near impossible to find his older stuff from "Shiva". He's changed a bit since then though.

    For me, respecting him comes from within and it's not just because of the "guru" aura or because he's a great guitarist.

    wisai. ..i dgot to Sonam for 400 bucks..the dude is a good guit, more bluesy kinda player..great choice.
    Do keep us posted on how the classes are going.

    It's not just because he's well-known.....He could easily have charged double and still have had more students than he could teach....but he's not really teaching for the money. He's doing it more to "spread the music"....of course, everyone needs the money but he's doing it for more than just that.

    For the ill-informed Calcuttan, he's playing at Sourav's every wednesday for some time so you can go and have a looksie.
