Had initial training in Shehnai from PANDIT AURANGABADKAR in Kopineshwar Mandir in Thane. Also had training in Classical Music from Sitarist PANDIT MARUTI PATIL. He was most excellently groomed & taught well for almost 39 years in Music, Shehnai & "Sanskaars" by
The Supreme Authority in Shehnai The Most Revered..., Bharat-Ratna USTAD BISMILLAH KHAN SAHEB. Pandit SHAILESH BHAGWAT's rendering of Shehnai is marked with an emotional presentation - which has a systematic blending and an improvisation of Raga in the "Gayaki-Ang". His phenomenal breath-control is superb and notable. No less noteworthy is his inclination in presenting the most intricate Ragas of his Shehnai which are less heard these days, like Raga Shivamat-Bhairav, Shahana-Bahar, Hans-Narayan, Hanskinkini, Meghranjani & many others. The depth and range of his Shehnai has a thorough spiritual, scientific, logical and professional approach towards his Music. Pandit SHAILESH BHAGWAT is equally eager to perform Lecture-cum-Demonstrations like his Concerts, & feels the intense necessity of propagating Music and every intricacy of Shehnai to each and every person who would love to understand Music and the Instrument - SHEHNAI. Pandit SHAILESH BHAGWAT has rendered his Shehnai- Recitals at innumerable places in India on account of various types of Occasions & has given Concerts of SHEHNAI for more than Three Decades to date. Shehnai is a Mission. MUSIC is DIVINE.
