Naadyoga is a profound harmony of art and science: Sandeep has incorporated principles in engineering, nutrition, programming, neuroscience, and physiology with insights in mindfulness, aestheticism, and history. Sandeep’s music and the practice that defines it, Naadyoga, is founded in the conviction that “natural beauty appeals naturally.”
Then, it is no wonder why Naadyoga has been essential, if not causal, to my growth, in all areas of life. Naadyoga empowers me to find balance, melt my fears away, and ignite my inspiration; all while advancing my musical skills, consciousness, and sense. It’s hard not to imagine musical development as an indirect result of Naadyoga because many of the benefits are deeply felt outside of music.
Our lives are filled with deadlines, duties, and detriments. Yet, we need to be efficient, effective, and exceptional. Naadyoga enriches you with the simplicity, effortlessness, and relaxation needed to succeed from life’s complicated, difficult, and testing moments.
Having been taught by Sandeep for over 13 years, I’ve learned new raags, bandishes, techniques, ideas, beauty, and so much more. But the truest lesson is being on a journey to continuously improve.
It has been my greatest pleasure to learn hindustani classical music from Sandeep Ranade for over a year now. Sandeep imparts a very carefully thought out methodology that compresses years long process of learning classical music into vocal techniques that help one achieve faster progress in months with regular practice.
Sandeep readily provides you with guidance and course corrections when he observes a lacking in vocal technique, knowledge or when you ask questions. Sandeep’s passion for music and dedication often takes him beyond what he planned to teach and for a student its all goodness in terms of enhanced learning. His recorded videos help you listen and learn at your own pace and time allowing you to use class time to become review sessions over time. In addition, he is very flexible and enthusiastic in teaching you the classical songs that you want to learn rather than be taught only what is on his plan. This one quality in and if itself is so valuable for aspiring students. His approachable nature and willingness to understand your challenges with tremendous patience is another great quality to call out.
I highly recommend passionate aspiring vocalists to uplevel their prowess under the tutelage of Sandeep’s vast knowledge, proficiency, and unique techniques.
My search for a scientifically backed, comprehensive, efficient and an effective Musical pedagogy ends here. I have found in Naadyoga a well rounded package for a holistic vocal ability and performance skill development. Guru and Endless Evolutionist Sandeep Ranade has packed all of his research, learning and experience spanning three decades into a beautiful jar and handed over to me.
The course is well crafted to cover every skill in Indian classical music while developing the overall voice methodically in tandem to be able to sing any genre. The whole idea of compressing the daily riyaz from 10 hours to 1 hour with proven techniques is unprecedented, yet effective. In less than 6 months, I saw my creativity, voice and performance ability improve to a point where I was able to perform a full 2 hour concert spontaneously. The exercises are brilliantly designed to progressively improve the skills in a way that you feel the difference session to session. The video lessons and vocal workout routines make it interesting and engaging.
With the NaadSadhana App launched recently, the course is now an end to end learning experience . All in all, last 6+ months have been most special for me since I see this is as moment of change and I am confident that I am in safe hands for guiding my passion to end goal and a beautiful musical journey.
I used to play Sitar previously and started learning Hindustani classical vocal since last three four years. In 2015, a family member in Toronto spoke to me about Sandeep ji. She had attended his concert and was really impressed and suggested that I should learn from him. I saw his YouTube videos and became his fan. I was pleasantly surprised when I called him and he agreed to teach me!
Sandeep ji's sincerity, patience and enthusiasm in teaching is amazing. His Naadyoga techniques are helping me make rapid and significant progress. It is scientific as well as spiritual and aesthetic. At each and every step, he is there to encourage. He teaches in a way where the student becomes independent and gets the capability to walk on his/her own. And that's a rare quality of a true Guru.
He has become one of the most cherished Guru, a friend and philosopher for me!I hope he will be there for a long time to guide me on this path of spiritual and aesthetic journey.
