Whatever she is today, it’s because of her mentor Dr Aman Bathla (Fastest Pianist of the World) and all her well-wishers’ blessings and support. Currently she wants to concentrate on her passion and hone her musical skills.Does she aspire to learn any more musical instruments other than piano?

However she also likes to play Guitar and violin. How is she able to excel at her studies, sports as well as being “The Youngest Pianist of India” at such a tender age? Gauri’s musical journey is very charming and splendid so far, but not easy along with studies. All these achievements could not have been possible without faith on her Guru. Her school lays a lot of focus on extra curricular activities which give her a chance to experience life beyond academics. We understand the importance of time or work management, and we have tried to make her adopt this in life for better management of her passion and studies. How much time does she dedicate every day to practising piano? She usually practices daily for 1 to 2 hours, depending on her mood and study work load. Again it boils down to managing between studies and passion, which she is able to do very well till now. Is there anything else that she loves to do? She is fond of learning new things in the field of Science, reading books, acting and sports. Several times she had participated in skating competitions and theatre workshops (Kingdom of Dream Gurgaon, Epic Center Theater and Mumbai) and won many medals and trophies at school level competitions. But her love for piano is something else. It is not only her passion, but a medium to calm her mind. Whenever she plays piano at home, at public or at a concert she seems to be in a different world. So she wants to learn music because it is the most powerful medium to connect with each other.
