He has studied under Shri Dwijendra Mohan Banerjee and his son Shri Sasanka Banerjee of Kolkata since 1987.
His performance activities in various forms such as India, Asia, and Europe have been highly evaluated. There are many collaborations and he continues to pursue the possibilities of his own music by providing composition and arrangement to various fields.
