He had a long gurukulam-style training in carnatic music from the legendary Paarupalli Raama Krishnayya Pantulu who is credited with producing such stalwarts as Dr. Mangalampalli Baala Murali Krishna and Annavarapu Raama Swamy.

Various other institutions recognized his mastery of the art by confering titles Sangeetha Saahitya Kalaa Nidhi, Hari Kadhaa Chuudamani and Sangeetha Kalaa Saagara.
 
In November 1998, he received special recognition from All India Radio (AIR) during Golden Jubilee celebrations; Later he also received a similar award from Telugu University, Hyderabad.
