Working With Flutist Rama Kumaran

I first met Rama Kumaran at Tracy Harris’s performance of my Iroquois Suite, which headlined her student recitals. When top-student Rama took the stage, I couldn’t believe my ears, what an amazing talent! After the show, I introduced myself to him not knowing that this young student would quickly become a flutist on many of my recordings. Over the years, I have watched Rama grow into an undeniable master of the flute. His beautiful tone of deep, sensitive expression and effortless technique allow him to play anything I write. Even through the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to work together. All the way from Europe, he records music for my future releases. If you're interested in taking online lessons with Rama, please reach out to him. He is very approachable, and I highly recommend him!

"Rama Kumaran is a storyteller and multi-instrumentalist from California. Prior to graduating from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Rama became the youngest-ever winner of the American National Flute Association’s Young Artist Competition. Rama’s current work includes cross-disciplinary storytelling, creative research, and historical performance. He is passionate about his teaching studio, where he connects the disciplines of STEM and the humanities with the Boulanger lineage of music pedagogy, which he is proud to represent. Passion projects have included voice-acting and encoding children’s books into Braille, teaching a kids' seminar on cinematography, and coaching Shakespeare with the Leadership Education Mentoring Institute."
