Dr. Harish Ganapathy has trained in carnatic vocal music for over three decades and is a senior disciple of Nada Yogi maestro Shri V. V. Subrahmanyam. Through his formative years, Harish trained under several Gurus including Vidushi Raji Gopalakrishnan, Shri Tanjore S. Sitaraman, Sangeeta Kala Acharya Shri P. S. Narayanaswami and Shri Madurai Sundar, each one of them having played an indelible role in his musical journey. Harish has also trained on the violin under Shri V. V. S. Murari.
Harish has performed at numerous venues around North America and India, including as part of the Chennai December Music Festival. Harish takes immense pleasure in exploring the spiritual realms of carnatic music, taking the listener with him so as to reach their inner depths, making his music a soul-filling experience. Harish has studied voice presentation techniques under Shri Karthik Ramalingam of Toronto and aspects of laya under his father Shri Tanjore S. Ganapathy (a senior disciple of Dr. T. K. Murthy). He actively incorporates these foundational elements in his teaching style.
