Experiences

Indian Classical Vocal Teacher

AAICM  |  New York, United States

August, 2013 - Present

MISSION
As a truly multicultural nation, America embraces the diverse artistic traditions of countries around the world. The study and practice of Indian Classical Music, which burst on to the cultural scene in the sixties, has consolidated and deepened over the years due to the assimilation in the last decades of a large and highly cultured diaspora from the Indian subcontinent. The American Academy of Indian Classical Music (AAICM) was founded in 2005 to reflect this growing fascination with Indian music and has become the premier institution for instruction in Indian Classical Music on the east coast of America.

Its great strength owes to the fact that its regular instructors (gurus) are some of the most accomplished musicians from India, providing the most authentic form of education into this glorious tradition of music now available. The Academy focuses on vocal music and such celebrated musicians as Ustad Mashkoor Ali Khan and Vidushi Subra Guha both from India's finest center for Classical Music (The Sangeet Research Academy) as well as remarkable young musicians such as Sri Sanjoy Banerjee, Sabina Islam, and Sanjukta Biswas provide instruction at all levels - for beginners as well as for advanced students with the privilege of one-on-one instruction from these masters. (See "Classes" on this website for details.)

Musician Scholar

ITC.SRA  |  India

July, 2012 - Present

Musician Scholar

Indian Classical Vocalist.

Self-employed  |  Kolkata, India

May, 1997 - Present

Sandip is one of the few prodigies to have lived up to his initial promise. Born in a family with a deep rooted musical background, Sandip was initiated into music by his mother Smt. Krishna Bhattacharjee at the age of four and he continued his talim under Smt. Amita Dasgupta later.
When in his teens, Sandip became a residential scholar at the ITC Sangeet Research Academy under the able Guidance of Ustad Mashkoor Ali Khan & Ustad Mubarak Ali Khan, sons and disciples of the legendary Sarangi Maestro late Padmashree Ustad Shakoor Khan. It was essentially here that Sandip was nurtured in the true guru shishya parampara system of training of the Kirana Gharana . Now he is a senior musician scholar at the ITC Sangeet Research Academy, Tollygunge, Kolkata.
Along with his music, Sandip also holds a First class degree in Graduation from Rabindra Bharati University (Kolkata), in classical music. Other than pure classical music he is competent in singing semi classical forms like Bhajans, ghazals and Nazrulgeeti as well. Sandip also has to his credit 3 commercial releases - a CD on khayal by Sonic Octaves, Mumbai, a CD of Bengali songs by R.P Techvision, Kolkata and a CD on Bhajan by Sonic Octaves, Mumbai.
Gifted with a robust voice, Sandip is today one of the most promising young classical artists of the country, which is borne out by his regular performances across India and abroad (United States, Europe and Bangladesh). A recipient of the Title Surmani from Sur Singar Sansad Mumbai, Sandip also broadcasts regularly over the All India Radio as an “ A “ Grade artist.
His scintillating taiyari in the Taans and Sargams have been spontaneously appreciated by listeners and musicians alike everywhere.
Apart from being an able performer Sandip is also a teacher of music. He travels regularly to Guwahati, and Digboi where he has a substantial following of students in Indian classical music. Sandip has been a faculty at AAICM in New York since 2013.
