  • Learn how to lead kirtan effectively

  • Opportunities to lead kirtan in public in a safe, relaxed, encouraging and supportive environment

My personal experience of private music lessons has been both highly traumatising & supportive!... So I am really passionate about offering musical assistance which fosters uplifting experiences to nurture the heart & soul as well as helping you to develop musically.  

I believe in supporting you on your own musical journey, which is always completely unique! That’s why I love teaching music! I find it works beautifully to follow, support & guide your own lead and flow, so sessions can be as creative, intuitive or technical as you need... And holding the intention of the sessions to be easeful, enjoyable and creating more harmony in your life!

If this is resonating & you are interested in learning how to play or lead kirtan using your voice & harmonium or guitar, & able to travel to my home in Narraweena, Sydney, do get in touch.

My standard rate is $80 an hour. 

Lesson length can be from 1 hour to 2.5 hours per session.

Call / text me (Gyan) on 0408 013 341, to discuss what you need.

'Gyan is the most amazing teacher. Wow I have had a wonderful musical journey these past 5 years...  I am so grateful to have found bliss in music through you.'

'Gyan you are such an empowering teacher! Thank you!' Julie Clare


'I have found my voice. Yesterday I had my first vocal toning lesson with Gyan... I have learned and unlearned so many things in just an hour lesson!

Totally recommend Gyan’s courses to anyone who wants to learn how to use the voice for meditation, healing, and be able to use your voice (singing, talking, chanting) without straining your throat.... 

And I finally understood how my harmonium works. It makes a wonderful sound now...

Today I practiced speaking & singing with mouth open wide and with smile at the end!!!

It’s harder than I thought. I was scared to be heard, to be seen, yes, I am a weird introvert!

Now I allow my voice to be heard. I accepted my myself truly & fully.

This is a fun healing journey for me...

I am so grateful to have found another amazing teacher.'
