Born in the family of music lovers, Shreedhar was introduced in music by his mother, who is a Harmonium player. Later on for a decade, he was groomed under the able guidance of Pt.Rambhau Bijapure of Belgaum, who is a leading Harmonium player in the country. For the last few years, Shreedhar is taking advanced training in Khayal Gayaki from Pt.Yashawantbuwa Joshi, one of the senior vocalists of the Gwalior Gharana.
Shreedhar has been giving public performances, since his childhood. He was well known at his age of five, for the rendition of Geet-Ramayan, the epic written by Shri.G.D.Madgulkar, the celebrated poet of our times.
Audiences used to applaud whenever young Shreedhar rendered light classical songs, bhajans, etc. in his melodious voice, with amazing perfection of swar and taal. With proper guidance and regular riaz he gained precision, enriched his collection of cheezes and acquired maturity in his presentation. His open mind and politeness are the additional qualities. Equipped with all these, Shreedhar has travelled widely giving music performances - Mumbai, Bangalore, Goa, Hyderabad, Dharwad, Hubli, Karkala, Kundgol, Gadag etc. to name but a few. His recitals are regularly telecast on Udaya TV, one of the most popular channels.
Recognising his talent, several awards have come Shreedhar’s way at various music competitions. Sur Singaar Samsad has conferred upon him “Surmani” title. Without becoming complacent Shreedhar is going ahead, with firm determination to attain new heights in the realm of Hindustani classical music. As a rising star, he deserves every appreciation and recognition.
Sreedhar is a Science Graduate of Karnatak University, Dharwad.
