Pt. Chidanand Nagarkar was a versatile scholarly musician who was gifted with an art to capture the dais at any point of time.

He had the intial training in music under Pt. Govind Vithal Bhave at Bangalore. But his long systematic arduous training under Acharya S.N.Ratanjankar at Lucknow moulded him into a highly creative and expressive musician.

His style, often a reminiscent of Ustad Faiyaz Khan, was unmistakably his own distinctive individuality with an uncanny blending of Classical restraint and emotional freedom. A multifaceted artiste Nagarkar was equally at ease with Tabla and Harmonium.

He also had lessons in Kathak Dance under Pt. Shambhu Maharaj.

Under his pseudonym Chit-Anand, he has several compositions and self-composed Ragas, to name a few - Kaishiki Ranjani, Ambika Surang and Yoga Shri.
