Hindustani Classical Music
We provide training for Hindustani classical music, Indian classical music, and tabla.
Music School for Next Generation
The main focus is on the generation X and Y. Our music seems to be losing its place and value among these generations, and it is the intent of this school to revive their interest.
Today's generation is tomorrow's torchbearer of this valuable art, and this school is established to accomplish this goal.
Phoenix Gharana School of Indian Arts was established in April 2006 to promote Indian Classical Music. We strive for excellence in all areas of Hindustani Shastriya Sangeet. We focus on discipline and ensure that every single student is held to the same standards. Our method of teaching guarantees that our students will go beyond learning the Indian arts and go on to pursue careers in the industry.
About Manu Srivastava
Manu Srivastava started his Hindustani Classical Music training in Kanpur at the tender age of 4 under the guidance of Smt. Snigdha Biswas. He later continued his training in Canada and India under gurus such as Smt. Lata Sathe (disciple of Pt. Kumar Gandharva) Smt. Veena Shukla (disciple of Pt. Balwant Rai Bhatt) and Sri Shrikant Lagu (sole disciple of Pt. Sharad Apte of Lahore).
What really changed Srivastava’s outlook on Shastriya Sangeet was his vigorous training under the late Pt. Kashinath Shankar Bodas. Pandit Bodas brought out the best in Manu, inspiring him to refine his music through intense daily riyaz. He mainly acquired his training in the tradition of Gwalior Gharana but a Touch of Agra and strong influence Jaipur Gharana can be seen in his khayal gayaki due to his regular training under the tutelage of Vidhushi Padma Talwalkar and Vidhushi Shubhada Paradkar.
