The Banff Centre is a beautiful university campus located in the middle of the Canadian Rockies.  This centre creates an intersection of arts and ideas by supporting multidimensional artists for the international stage in a rich learning environment. Grammy nominated composer-pianist​, Vijay Iyer, Program Director of the 'The Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music' (between May and June, 2014) has invited me as a guest faculty for this workshop. Vijay Iyer is a​n eminent ​ Professor at the Department of Music, Harvard University. He is also the Winner of the  ​Prestigious  ​2013 US MacArthur Fellowship.

 In this forum, program participants gather from around the world to share, develop and challenge their own ideas and abilities. The stellar faculty includes world-renowned musicians, innovators, leaders and thinkers, who will present master classes, lectures, workshops, informal sessions and collaborative concerts. I will be sharing key improvisational concepts of Carnatic music with Jazz music students and the eminent faculty. It is a great honor and I am very excited to be part of this program.
