About this pro

at Bhardwaj Music Academy, we believe music is not only a skill, but also an attitude towards life, a way of thinking, a method to express, and a companion along the journey. Through music, people discover themselves; through listening, people understand each other: music brings people together. Based on these beliefs, we won’t only be focusing on techniques, but also on keeping and developing student’s passion, discovery and communication. We create a customized lesson program that will ensure maximum results at a pace that works best for student’s goal.

What we really love is hearing our students find and develop  their own individual voices on their chosen instruments - that is what the art of improvising is all about. We also enjoy the challenge of figuring out how each student thinks and learns, and how we can help them achieve their goals. It's a true joy to guide others on their musical path.

    Eli is a sensitive, skilled, and reliable performer and voice teacher. She imparts her knowledge with ease and takes great care of all of her students, ensuring that they reach their vocal potential. Eli is a sophisticated artist with a treasure trove of gifts and ability to offer her students. I highly recommend her! Thanks BMA.

    Samantha is fabulous and great at sharing her vocal with a variety of skill levels. I have taken a private lesson and participated in a group experience as well. She has a strong sense about how to explain the lessons and put the process into terms that works best for the individual. I would highly recommend her. Warm thanks to BMA.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When we begin with a new student we ask them a few questions to determine their goals. Then we create a plan and explain how we'll meet the goals. Typically, we utilize several methods and select the method that best suits the student. All of our students are taught in variety of Technic (scales and chords) classical and contemporary repertoire, music theory, sight reading and ear training.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

We take our hiring process seriously. We only hire qualified, dedicated & the best. All of our instructors are professional, talented, qualified, friendly, calm and dedicated to teaching. We background check every instructor before they teach a single lesson/program. We take safety and professionalism very seriously!

What types of students have you worked with?

We have worked with students from age 5 to 80! This has included beginners and advanced students, recreational players, college students, people who just wanted to learn to play a song or two, students trying to get into a conservatory, and many more. We also have experience teaching children with special needs including Autism and ADHD. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

The key factors in a successful relationship between student and teacher is understanding each others expectations and managing those expectations.  In addition, students must make a commitment to practice. 

We would say the most important thing is to find someone you gel with- that makes you feel excited to play/ sing, and that makes you feel happy and confident. Nothing can kill joy like a negative attitude, or feeling of insecurity. Look for a teacher that can pivot if something is not working.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are your musical goals?

What kind of music do you like to listen to?

What kind of music do you want to play?

If you're an adult, did you have lessons as a child? If so, what were they like? Do you hope they will be like that or different?
