Hello Everyone! Let’s play some human sounding music together!
My name is Kris Ramakrishna and I am Swiss/Indian guitarist, composer/arranger, and educator raised in the United States. My diverse upbringing has allowed me to explore various different kinds of music like Flamenco, Jazz, Indian Classical, Manouche Jazz, Arabic Maqam, Blues, Rock, and Western Classical. Music is truly a universal passport.
I have a bachelors and masters from Berklee College of Music, but more importantly, I breathe, live, listen, and play music.
I look forward to hearing from you and what music means to you!
Expect to solidify and achieve YOUR goals. I am here to you guide you, make suggestions, and present you with options if you are unsure of the path you want to take in music. I will never force you to learn/play something that you are not interested in, and look forward to helping you accomplish your goals. Remember that the sky is not even the limit!

You can always think ahead and get a few things ready before your lessons. Make sure to tune your instrument before the lesson. Bring à a notepad and anything you might need to write down notes. We strongly recommend testing your video conference settings at least 15 min before each lesson to avoid any unwanted technical issues during the lesson.
