Suresh Ishwar Wadkar (born 7 August 1955) is an Indian playback singer. He performs in both Hindi and Marathi films. He has sung songs in some Bhojpuri films, Odia albums and bhajans and in Konkani films.
In 1968, when Suresh Wadkar was 13, Jialal Vasant encouraged him to work towards the “Prabhakar” certificate offered by the Prayag Sangit Samiti, because it was equivalent to a BEd and qualifies the awardee to teach professionally. Wadkar successfully completed his “Prabhakar” and joined Arya Vidya Mandir in Mumbai as a music teacher.
He has a music school in Mumbai, India and New Jersey/New York City where methodical training is given to students. He has also started an online music school, called SWAMA (Suresh Wadkar Ajivasan Music Academy), under Ace Open University.
