Lydian Nadhaswaram and Homeschooling

Lydian is in the ninth grade and is currently being homeschooled. According to him, homeschooling is the most suitable option for him as it provides him with the flexibility to focus on music. His schedule differs every day as it depends upon which piece he is practicing on. At the time of the interview, he was doing a part on the Piano for which he practices for 5-6 hours per day. He is focused on his education and studies whenever he gets the time. Home is the best environment to learn for Lydian as his father also teaches him. His father is a composer and plays various instruments. He is close to his father and gets all the support he needs from him.
