Sandeep Shirodkar BIOGRAPHY
Sandeep Shirodkar is a musician and music producer, and works mainly for the Indian Film Industry in Mumbai. His father, Mr. Hemant Shirodkar, was also a musician and played the guitar for famous composers of yesteryear, Kalyanji-Anandji. As a child, Sandeep used to frequently accompany his father at session recordings. He learnt to play the synthesizer from his father at the age of seven. Sandeep's professional career as a musician started when he played at his first recording session. And he was just 12 years old then! He soon realized that this was what he was going to do in life... i.e. "make music". Besides getting guidance from his father, Sandeep needed to get trained with MIDI programming; something that was fast changing the music scene forever. He started training under Viju Shah (son of Shri Kalyanji,) and learnt his basics under the able guidance and support of Vijubhai. Sandeep owes a lot to him for this, and regards him as a 'Guru'. Over the years and countless sessions later, Sandeep can honestly claim to have worked with each and every music director in the Industry. This vast experience has taught him a lot, and moulded him into the musician I am today.
