I, Nithyasree Ramprasad , started learning carnatic music at the age of 12. My Guru is Ms.S.V Usha of Suprabhatha Sabha. I have participated and won prizes in several competitions conducted by organizations like the Music Academy, Indian Fine Arts, Hamsadhwani and Suprabhatha Sabha . I have also performed semi-classical kacheri’s in several temples in Chennai and won appreciations from many connoisseurs and critics. I was selected to represent Tamilnadu region for the semi-classical genre for the All-India music programme conducted by Mylapore Fine Arts.

After a long break , I had the privilege to be a student of Smt. Uma Ayyar and continuing to learn from her for the past 2 years.

Music has always been a part and parcel of my life.My mom was the reason for bringing the music in me and inspiration for pursuing music. Blessed to have very supportive husband who constantly encourages me to pursue music and  my second mother,mom-in-law is a true motivation  helping me always to dedicate my time for music. Last but not the least , blessed to have 2 beautiful children who inspire me in lot of ways.
