Riyaz Sessions Online

If you’ve ever tried to learn an instrument, you’ll know that playing exercises on your own can be a very dry experience. Sometimes we just feel too tired and lazy to practice, and it takes a huge amount of willpower to get going.

That’s why a lot of my students find Riyaz sessions so valuable.

Riyaz sessions are guided practice sessions where you’ll be playing the carefully selected Sitar exercises along with me. These sessions are much more rewarding and stimulating than practicing alone, and you’ll be getting all the additional support you need in exactly the way I received support from my beloved Master, Guru Shri Arvind Dighe. If you’re passionate about mastering the Sitar, Riyaz sessions are a great opportunity to have a fantastic time playing your instrument while also connecting yourself to the soulful lineage of Indian music.

I hold my Riyaz sessions every Sunday at 8.30am on Zoom.

Get in touch and I’ll send you all the details. It would be great to see you there!

Vijay is a truly wonderful sitar player! He creates a very beautiful sound that was perfect for our event. Our guests were all very complimentary of his music and Vijay was professional and organised to work with.

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!
