Indradeep Ghosh initially started playing violin at the young age of six under the guidance of Sri Anamitra Mustafi. He has been under the tutelage of Professor Smt. Sisirkana Dhar Chowdhury since 1991. He also had the privilege of getting training with different maestros of Indian Classical Music including Pandit V.G.Jog and Pandit Kumar Bose. He is gifted with a unique creative, musical ability, which can be seen in his performances. They can range from sweet and soothing to fascinating and thrilling, while showing excellent bow techniques and melodies.

The sympathetic strings allow for a fuller, resonant sound. His performances integrate many different styles and techniques of Western Classical and Oriental music.
