The Nada Nidhi Music School, based in Fremont, CA, provides education in the art of playing the Veena, and the intricacies of Carnatic Music. Students undergo rigorous training ranging from the basics of this unique instrument to the complex aspects of musical improvisation and concert performance.
Nada Nidhi is very proud to be celebrating its 25th anniversary of teaching in the Bay Area! There was a celebration held on Saturday September 13 to commemorate this special occasion.
