Online…

Online lessons have become an increasingly popular choice for my students. Not just because I can teach them regardless of where they are in the world, but because it gives them the comfort and convenience to learn at their own pace in their own home. Also, while the UK and the rest of the world is currently experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic, online lessons allow my students to learn their instrument and interact with me face-to-face in complete safety.

For online lessons, I use a popular video communications app called Zoom. It’s free to use, easy to set up and very reliable. I’ll send you simple instructions on how to prepare for your Zoom session so you can get connected to me quickly. If you wish, we can also arrange a no-obligation introductory lesson or a free trial session to make sure you are completely comfortable with the arrangement before finalising your first ‘official’ lesson.

Guru Vijay Jagtap-ji’s patient hands-on teaching makes music really accessible. Being able to receive one-to-one instruction over nearly two decades has been a privilege

When I had my first lesson with Vijay my intention was to have a one off class, but in that first hour I learned so much and I understood there was so much more to learn that I immediately signed up for 10 classes.

My 10-year-old daughter and I have been learning Sitar from Pandit Vijay Jagtap since November last year. From the very first lesson, we both came away feeling very peaceful.  He’s kind, tolerant, patient, cultured, expert in his field and enjoys what he teaches. As for myself, have learnt a lot more in the last few months with Pandit Vijay Jagtap. I would most definitely recommend this teacher. We are both really enjoying our lessons… so much so that I’m waiting for my next child to be old enough to learn from him too!

Mr. Jagtap is a true diamond! I am SO delighted to have met him. I am taking Sitar lessons and am truly enjoying every session. He is genuinely professional in many Indian instruments including my favorite Sitar. His teaching method is really excellent I learned the basics in a couple of sessions! I’m so grateful for his kindness!
