Happy Teacher's Day from FunkBeats

Steve Vai, Kirk Hammett, Larry Lalonde, Alex Skolnick and Geoff Tyson are just a few amongst many other globally reputed guitarists sharing one thing in common

An inspiring teacher: Joe Satriani. Indeed, all that talent requires to blossom is an inspiration - a teacher.

At the age of fourteen, Steve Vai showed up to Joe Satriani’s home in Westbury, guitar in hand, without any strings. Vai asked Satriani to teach him how to play. This gave rise to the great Steve Vai, one of the greatest to ever lay hands on the guitar. Teachers inculcate knowledge and values, which are useful not only inside the classroom, but are also quintessential for every step in one's life. Be it an apprentice training under a master bronzesmith, a training musician or a student of mathematics, everyone needs a teacher, someone who with experience and knowledge, imparts education to the next generation. In India, the teacher-student relation has since history been an auspicious one, the tradition of Guru-Shishya Parampara. Teachers' day is celebrated on 5th September to express gratitude to these motivators, without whom we would be left in the dark without light, however we should not celebrate only one day in honour of these great people but every day in gratitude for their selfless service.

"Teacher's make a difference in all our lives" We at FunkBeats would like to say thanks to all our teammates who are working day and night for educating kids and preparing them to become good musicians!
