Kushal Sethi, MTV Artist, Singer-songwriter

Songwriting classes with Anurag sir were very helpful. In fact I applied the techniques on my song ‘ Nai Duniya‘ which was released on MTV. From generating song ideas to make songs memorable, Anurag sir shared knowledge which was truly enlightening. I learned How professional musicians use techniques which enhance the melody, structure and lyrics of the songs.

Vinayak Arora, Singer-songwriter

I learned how to generate song ideas that are more appealing to people. How the songs are structured and how to use different phrasing ideas, scale modes and ragas just like the industry professionals. Class discussions with Anurag sir was icing on the cake.

Jatin Katyal, Musician / Drummer, Mumbai

The course was divided in three parts-Melody, Lyrics & harmony and Anurag sir taught us the tricks hit songwriters use. How the rhyming structure works, how different modes and chords create different musical flavors. The lyrics part was very interesting and we also analyzed hit songs. It was so much information that I can’t write everything down here.

Pankaj, Singer-songwriter

I’m from Moradabad and I used to come to Anurag sir’s classes every week. Being a renowned musician, Anurag sir has a different take on things. His ‘Bull’s eye’ and ‘Creating the pull’ concepts have been very useful. In music production I learned how pro artists actually work on songs. I also learned how to record and mix cover versions as I wanted good sounding songs for my youtube channel. I learned how to give my compositions a polished sound. I also joined PRO vocals & keyboard PRO courses. I have just uploaded my songs which I entirely produced at home and I’m getting 800+ likes on facebook everyday.
