Born in London, England to Indian immigrants, Rahul started to realize at an early age that the only world he wished to inhabit was the world of music. In his home, the music that he heard from his parents, and the records that he listened to, formed a basis for what would become a launching pad for his sonic inquiry over the rest of his life. He studied Jazz composition and arranging, and applied those techniques to life elements, rather than to notes in order to integrate the musical, spiritual, intellectual, and emotional threads of his life into a sort of tapestry. Since discovering his deep love of children, he has been privileged to work with many wonderful young people over the last 40 years. He is currently on the faculty at PVPA Charter Public School, where he has taught since 2003, and continues to teach the MAPS program furthering the skills of young songwriters.
