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 excited to be teaming up with Trinity School of Music to present Guru Samarpanam, a tribute to Guru Lalgudi Sri G. Jayaraman. This event is a fundraiser for the Shiva-Vishnu Temple of Livermore. Details are in the "Upcoming Performances" segment on this page. We look forward to seeing you at this program.
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.
