Prajeet Kumar Roy
Website designer & Guitarist Pt1
Say hello to Prajeet Kumar Roy, an electric guitarist who will be playing lead for our concert. “I got my first guitar when I was 8 and honestly, I never liked to play it then as I was more into playing the piano at the time. About 4 years ago I heard this song by Metallica called Fade to Black and that's when I got really passionate about playing the guitar; about a year later, I got my first electric guitar (which I still own). Playing the guitar has made me appreciate music in a new sense. My idol in the guitar world is Kirk Hammett. I hope that through this concert, I am able to spread happiness with my music and help people experience music in a positive way.”

I enjoy this and hope that the audience does too. Playing the guitar brings me joy like nothing else.”

I started off with Hindustani classical music when i was just 5, and I've been training in western vocals for the past 6 years. Singing is my everything: it is how I express myself, and channel my emotions. I’ve been competing and performing for years now, and music has become a grand part of who I am. Not only am I interested in the mainstream pop genre, I love jazz, rock and even country music. What I really love about vocals is that I can experience different cultures by learning and practicing different types of beautiful songs - from English to Hindi, and even Spanish! This year, I will be taking the very last vocal grade exam offered by Trinity College, London - Grade 8 - and i am thrilled to see where my musical journey will take me in the future.”
Deekshita Thirumalai Nambi
The Singer Pt.2
Meet Deekshita Thirumalai Nambi, a singer and MM member. “Music has always been a big part of my life. I took classical (Carnatic) music classes when I was just about four and had a great time performing in small temples nearby. I began playing guitar when I was the age of ten. At first it was an awkward big thing to play from but I slowly got used to it. I soon started singing along and jammed with my friends. It definitely pulled us closer together. Although I loved playing the guitar, I soon got caught up in studies and couldn't find the time to continue. However I still do sing, whether in the bathroom, with my friends or with my sister. It's a definite golden moment with them which I cherish from the bottom of my heart.”

Here’s Virochan, another 11th grader from Greenwood High and member of MM. Virochan is a clarinet player and has been playing this instrument since 5th grade.
