KEITH DENEMARK

My name is Keith Denemark. I'd like to share a few recollections of Patric. I still recall, on my first lesson, when Patric asked me, "So why you are interested in learning the sitar?" I replied, "I am a big Beatles fan and George learned from Ravi Shankar." Patric responded, "That's all I need to know." I also recall when I was practicing at home, and all of a sudden I felt like a presence guiding my hand on the sitar. I immediately called Patric. Patric told me I had a growth spurt.

What helps me now when I practice, I think to myself Patric is over in India on vacation, and I know one day I will see him again.
