Q: What inspired you to play music?

A: I loved the way music sounded—especially pop music—and I wanted to be able to emulate my favorite songs.  “I love listening to this music, but I want to be able to replicate the sounds that I love hearing.” I could only imagine how much more satisfying it would be to play the songs that I loved rather than just listening to them.


Q: What is your favorite style of music?

A: I love all types of music, especially pop and also Indian Bollywood songs.


Q:  Who is your favorite artist and why?

Q: What is your favorite song to play?

A: I love to hum ‘Roar’ by Katy Perry all the time.


Q: What are you learning right now in your lessons?

A: In my voice lessons I’m learning ‘How Far I’ll Go’ from the movie ‘Moana’ and in my piano class I’m learning to play Für Elise.


Q: What are you most looking forward to learning/performing?

A: I’m looking forward to learning more songs and perform at various events hosted by Bach to Rock.


Q: What’s your favorite thing about Bach to Rock?

A: I love to attend my classes at Bach the Rock. I especially love when I get to record my songs in the recording studio. I love to go to the soundproof room and put on the headphones.


Q: What is your favorite thing about your teacher?

A: I enjoy my lessons with Ms. Kim, she makes every class very easy and motivates me to excel in every lesson.


Q: What do you enjoy doing when you’re not playing music?

A: When I’m not playing music, I love to draw and write my journal.

Ms. Kim is Niharika’s voice teacher since April of this year, and has shared her thoughts on teaching Niharika:

“I love watching Niharika’s confidence grow every week. Watching her come out of her shell over the past several months, even more just these last few weeks has been amazing. She has a passion for music, and you can definitely see that when she sings. She is a dedicated student and musician, and it is such a pleasure to be her teacher."
