In the words of Guru Sri Lalgudi G. Jayaraman:
“ Ananda Nadayogi learned under my guidance in the Gurukula system--residing in the home of the Guru imbibing the nuances of the art form. He was a dedicated student very keen who came to us with a good music background and continued to learn this art form to the fullest extent. In Indian classical Violin playing, the Lalgudi style is considered to be traditional, innovative, vibrant and a judicious blend of musicianship and technique. This style was created by me and this is passed on by me or my son only to a chosen few deserving aspirants amongst whom Swami Ananda Nadayogi is one. He later went on to obtain his Bachelor degree in Indian Music from the University of Madras, India. He is a versatile violinist and vocalist of Indian Classical music and will be a great asset to any Music institution. He is an adept performer and a teacher. I wish him all the success.”, - Lalgudi G. Jayaraman.
