    Demand for good carnatic teachers in the bay area is just too high. I can understand ur frustration. In general the best way to reach out to teachers is through their current or ex-students. Another option is to attend concerts of teachers or concerts of their senior students where the guru will be present. Not always but highly likely.
    Carnatic America | Find carnatic concerts and events near you seems to list most if not all the concerts in bay area.Most local teachers also have public facebook profiles and list their upcoming events.
    Teachers want to see if your family is genuinely interested in music and there is no better time or place to reinforce that . Meet the guru after the concert. Its still pretty old-school in the carnatic world. Also do not get carried away by names/or gurus lineage..do your homework .A good artist need not be a good teacher. Talk to their current students and parents. Be very clear about what u want for ur child. The serious teachers want really committed kids. Their time is precious and a rare commodity. Also do not be disheartened if u do not start with a local teacher there r plenty of teachers who take lessons through skype . Best of luck!
    Edited to add: When u send in ur email remember to attach an mp3 of a small bhajan or song that ur daughter can currently sing. From literally hundreds of emails they get it will help urs to stand out.
