About JK Academy

Jayanthi Kumaresh Academy of Veena aims to connect the artist with aspiring Veena students by providing periodic master classes on specified subjects. These master classes will throw light on the details of techniques, repertoire, practice and creativity and the effective use of these tools in the betterment of performance. The 35 years of concert experience will translate as a movement to create the next generation of Vainikas who will preserve, promote, propagate and present the National Instrument of India, the Saraswathi Veena, to the world. The Academy will soon roll out a continuous education programme with a stipulated syllabus for Veena students at all skill levels.  For now, we will begin with periodic MasterClasses.
