We have been associated with CCC for the past four years. We were reluctant starters, and were not regular to the session, and often wondered why Padma was insisting member families to attend every session. It took us some time to become CCC regulars, and that made a big difference both to our child and us in learning and progression. We started appreciating the nuances of Carnatic music and the progression of each CCC performer over the years.
CCC is a great forum that provides opportunity to the younger generation to gain interest in Carnatic music, and also provides a friendly and knowledgeable audience. It provides a nice opportunity for kids to watch their seniors and peers perform, and provides an intense motivation to perform their best in the concert, and also showcase their progression over the years.
We and our child relish the opportunity and privilege to perform in CCC, and it’s great to see our child’s progress every year.
We sincerely appreciate Padma, Mohan and all other CCC volunteers for their great vision, enthusiasm and effort in creating this forum for our kids. Some times we wonder whether our kids would get such an environment and opportunity even in Chennai, the mecca of Carnatic music.
