  • I performed at the Hindustani Classical recital. Initially I wasn’t confident at all but the constant encouragement provided by Suhail, my teacher, helped me gain confidence and work harder and eventually I was able to perform. This was quite an experience and had an extremely positive effect on me.

  • I have a deeper understanding of how to trust my band-mates while playing music, and I am now much more confident about making musical statements while improvising.
