Rathi started learning the piano at 5 years of age in Malaysia and has been teaching piano for the last 7 years byspecial request by our patron, Swami Shantanand.
She would like all her students to learn and play as many pieces as possible to improve technique and develop faster. Rathi encourages the students to do exams because that involves setting a goal for themselves and then achieving it. It also makes them do regular practise. To put the students through the AMEB system because of the options available like the traditional syllabus, or doing the Piano for Leisure program which is not as demanding, are choices offered to students. As a musician, Rathi strongly feels whatever the child chooses to learn, the piano or some other instrument or dance, the joy of learning and expressing music and dance, is such a positive, creative and spiritual experience.
