About Lalitha & Jeremy

We met in a library!  We were introduced at the Faculty of Music library of the University of Toronto. As it turned out, that was a fortuitous place to meet. 

So much of our music has developed over decades of training, collaborating and experimenting. Our music has taken us to more than 30 countries where we’ve shared our music with broad audiences… presidents and diplomats, school children, the incarcerated, refugee camps, and public figures like Mother Teresa.

We have maintained teaching studios for over 30 years.  It has been so rewarding and fulfilling to see students reach their goals, receive recognition and awards for their achievements and discover the personal strengths and pleasures that come from learning to express themselves skillfully and freely.  A number of our students have continued in music through university and into professional careers.  

When we’re not making music or teaching it we spend our time traveling, gardening and enjoying time with our adult kids!

Here’s to music and all of life’s roads that it has taken us down!
