Sandeep Ranade is a software engineer by training, with work experience in several U.S. companies, including Microsoft and Google. He is also a Hindustani classical vocalist who began singing at the age of four and has learned the principles of his craft from gurus like the late Dr. Shobha Abhyankar and Padma Vibhushan Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj. Now, thanks to Skype, he’s passing his knowledge along to students the world over.

Sandeep Ranade是一名经过培训的软件工程师,在美国的几家公司的工作经验,包括微软和谷歌。他也是一个印度古典歌手谁四岁开始唱歌,并学会了他的工艺大师原则像已故的Shobha Abhyankar博士和帕德玛Vibhushan Sangeet martand潘伟迪贾斯拉。现在,多亏了Skype,他把知识传授给了世界各地的学生。

Early on, while juggling both academics and music, Ranade developed techniques to compress his vocal routine. Using insights learned from mathematics, computer science, neurology, software testing, learning theory, and vocal anatomy, he taught himself a way to shorten his daily vocal workouts. “I have been able to compress vocal workout time to one hour per day, the uncompressed equivalent of which is about twelve hours,” Ranade says. He calls this optimized system “Naadyoga,” or “yoga of sound.”

在早期,而在学术界和音乐,里拉德发达压缩他的声乐常规技术。他利用数学、计算机科学、神经学、软件测试、学习理论和声乐解剖学等方面的知识,自学了一种缩短日常声乐训练的方法。“我已经能够压缩声带的锻炼时间每天一小时,其中压缩的当量约为十二小时,”Ranade说。他称该优化系统”naadyoga,”或“瑜伽的声音。”

When Ranade came to Redmond, Washington, in 2005 to work for Microsoft, he began giving Naadyoga lessons face to face. Several years later, he moved to California, but didn’t want to give up his new passion for teaching. He knew he needed a video conferencing tool to continue. “Skype was new, but all the rage, and it was surprisingly easy to use, for me and my students,” he says. He even maintained a long-distance relationship with his future wife using Skype.

当Ranade来到Redmond,在华盛顿,2005为微软工作,他开始给naadyoga课面对面。几年后,他搬到了加利福尼亚,但不想放弃他对教学的新热情。他知道他需要一个视频会议工具来继续。他说:“Skype是新的,但它风靡一时,它对我和我的学生来说都是非常容易使用的。”。他甚至用Skype与他未来的妻子保持了远距离关系。

Since then, Ranade’s number of students—and their geographic diversity—has increased. He has taught students in Toronto, New York, Boston, Melbourne, Zurich, London, Cupertino, Fort Collins, Seattle, and Pune. Utilizing Skype’s robust video conferencing capabilities, he has taught aspiring vocalists singly, and in groups. “I had one batch of students whom I taught at the same time—one from Zurich, one in London, and one in Seattle!”

此后,里拉德的学生数量和地理的多样性增加了。他先后在多伦多、纽约波士顿、墨尔本教学生,,苏黎世,伦敦,丘珀蒂诺,西雅图,和浦那的Fort Collins。利用Skype的视频会议功能,他教过的有抱负的歌手单独和组。“我有一批学生,我同时教他们一个来自苏黎世,一个在伦敦,一个在西雅图!“

Teaching music over the internet means you sometimes have to get creative—and Ranade is just that. To teach “taal,” or “rhythm,” compositions online he created over 75 supplemental videos for his students, combining them with Skype lessons to create an eclectic course—and an effective learning environment.

音乐教学在互联网意味着你有时必须得到创造性和Ranade只是。教“塔尔,”或“节奏”的成分,他创造了超过75的在线视频给学生补充,结合Skype的教训来创建一个折衷的过程,一个有效的学习环境。

Something Ranade is proud of is that, reading student reactions to his lessons, one sees no mention of whether his pupils are taking the lessons remotely or in person. The only reaction is that of satisfaction. He attributes this to Skype’s seamless interface, where the content is the focus of the call, and the experience is immersive. “As a teacher, I can’t stress how important it is for me to create experiences where it doesn’t matter whether I’m remote or collocated with my students. Thank you, Skype, for truly bringing the world closer, one person at a time!”

Ranade是自豪的是,阅读学生的反应给他的教训,一看到没有提及是否他的学生听课远程或人。唯一的反应是满意。他把这归功于Skype的无缝接口,其中的内容是通话的重点,体验是身临其境的。作为一名教师,我不能强调对我来说创造经验是多么重要,无论我是否远程或与我的学生并置。谢谢你,Skype,真正让世界更加紧密,一次一个人!“

Ranade is now back in India. In addition to running the startup Endless Evolution, which he and his wife cofounded, he continues his adventures in music and teaching, carrying on these lifelong passions without disruption. Skype continues to help him and his students from all over the world connect and make music together—bringing them face to face to experience the “yoga of sound” and learn from one another, one call at a time.

Ranade现在回到印度。除了运行启动层出不穷,他和妻子共同创办的,他继续他的音乐和教学经历,进行这些终身的激情不中断。Skype继续帮助他和来自世界各地的学生们连接并制作音乐,让他们面对面地体验“瑜伽的声音”,互相学习,一次一个电话。
