Their artistic experience

Elie and Philippe were born in Pondi, they met in a concert for amateur guitarists when they were 15. It is also the beginning of a long friendship and musical collaboration.

Elie guitare

They have played guitar together until Elie went back in France for his study. Once he had his diploma in a Business School, he left France to come back to Pondicherry and start to work as a sound engineer. He creates also his own music studio here in Pondicherry

In the same time, Philippe went to Bangalore to work in a call centre. Few years later, he decided to quit his job and devote all his time to music. 

Their music band

They then meet again when Elie came back in Pondicherry in 2014.
Their love for music, not only guitar, has pushed them to create a music band, Magnetic Fields. On the stage, they try to play all the instruments, which requires many training sessions. If you are curious, you can find more information on their web site: Change the World

Their guitar classes

When Elie was a teenager, he was already asked by parents to give guitar courses. That’s why Elie joined SITA as guitar teacher, when he came back in India, followed by Philippe.

Now, they wish to share their knowledge and experience. Guitar session can be private or in small group for all levels and all ages. Beginners may also learn how read a music partition and the guitar’s bases to play quickly. Advanced players may perfect themselves. Guitar class is available for acoustic and electro-acoustic guitars, and basses too.
