RAJENDRA TEREDESAI is one of the foremost disciples of the most celebrated and internationally acclaimed flute maestro of our times - PADMA VIBHUSHAN PANDIT HARIPRASAD CHAURASIA.

Highly accomplished academically Rajendra is a graduate mechanical engineer who has also attended the MBA program, specialising in Sales & Marketing Management. He has further to his credit, a Post Graduate Diploma in International Business, and a Diploma in Export Management, besides pursuing an program in Information Technology from California, USA


Rajendra took to classical music in the footsteps of his grandfather who was a self-taught violinist of great talent and merit. At the age of 12, he started learning the basics of vocal music and tabla playing from a local music teacher. Soon after, in 1968, he picked up a bamboo flute quite accidentally, which caught his imagination, and fascinated by its rich and soothing sound, started learning to play it all by himself.

In 1978, he chanced to listen to a recording and later, a live performance of Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia. So deeply influenced was he by Panditji's flute that, he spent the next few years practising and developing the techniques of flute playing on his own. He finally met the legendary flautist in 1982, who was impressed with Rajendra's very keen musical sense, zeal and obsession to learn and excel in playing the flute, and was readily accepted by him as a ganda-bandh disciple in 1982.Apart from being a graded radio artiste, he has given performances on television, besides playing several jugalbandhi concerts with the santoor, sitar, violin, jaltarang, guitar and mandolin, as well as several major concerts in contemporary world music, in India and abroad, which have been widely appreciated.
