As an educator, he has taught hundreds of aspiring musicians across the country in addition to holding workshops and teaching music at IB schools. 

He studied at The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) in 2004 and Los Angeles College of Music (LACM) in 2009 where he also held the position of a student tutor. Devkinandan Patel has contributed widely to music education in Gujarat and continues to teach today.

Music has no boundaries, and guitars even less. Geographically speaking, we live far apart, Dev in India and myself in central Brittany. But musically, we are very close. I have great admiration for Dev’s compositional work, it is his guitar sound that moves me particularly. Bravo, my friend! I hope to see you in person one day, and maybe exchange a few notes!

My friend Dev is a great player, a wonderful composer and really makes that guitar sing.
