|Vani Sateesh is a passionate teacher. She started teaching when she was a teenager; basically teaching many of her father's students, when he could not attend to them.
During her stay in US, Vani realized that she could fulfill an important role in the Indian community as a music teacher. Indian children born in US need a link to our music and culture and she was able to provide it to hundreds of them by teaching Carnatic music. Vani with husband Mysore Sateesh, a professional Violinist, taught over 150 students in a span of 15 years. Many of them have reached proficiency and a few have pursed to become concert artists. They also started an organization named after Vani uncle's mudra, 'VISHESHA'. Under 'VISHESHA', they organized many successful concerts until moving back to India.
Since moving back to India, Vani Sateesh has focused more on performing. She plans to resume teaching at a later stage in her career.
