Teachers

Since SRUTI was started in 1986, there has been a growing number of children, born in U.S.A., who have been training in Indian classical music and dance. As part of our mission in promoting and creating awareness of Indian classical music and dance in the greater Delaware Valley, Sruti is compiling a list of teachers. We encourage teachers in the greater Delaware Valley area to submit their details to Sruti to be listed on our website. Please submit the following information to the Sruti President : full name, specialty, phone number, address, email address, website, additional information in pdf format to learn more about you…

Teachers list is published as a service to the community and no endorsement to anyone in particular is implied.
