Having been born and brought up in an atmosphere surcharged with high caliber music round the clock, Nandini has taken to music as a duck takes to water. Her progress has been enormously astonishing and she has reached a high level of proficiency on the violin.

She has completed her Masters in Music in the year 2017 from SNDT University. She is currently faculty for music and composition at Whistling Woods International, a premier film institute in Mumbai.
