Jeet was a student of Baranagar Ramkrishna mission from there he completed his schooling.Later he finished his graduation from Calcutta university.Jeet is trained in Indian classical music under the guidance of his guru and father- Kali Ganguly and his pisima(father's sister) shibani Roychowdhury.Kali ganguly was a well-known musician of Calcutta. On the other hand, his bond with Western Classical, jazz and rock was shaped and nurtured by the famous Jazz guru and Guitarist- Karlton Kitto.
