Gangadharan Nagendra learnt Carnatic vocal music from Pon Suntharalingam and then from Yalpanam Sri A K Karunakaran. Later he learnt Carnatic Flute from his father Dr. Tiyagaraja Gangadharan.  He is an avid music lover and as a hobby, he makes music instruments. He built a Tanpura and a Talometer in 1986 and since then he has been experimenting with Flutes made out of various kinds of materials to produce perfectly tuned clear and crisp notes.
