Indian Classical Music Lessons Online

Would you be keen on learning “Indian Classical Music Appreciation 101” ?

Maybe you want to understand what’s so great about Classical Kirtan.

And since all our Spritual Guidance is written in various languages, all to music…
Maybe music is the gateway to learn about Sikh history, culture.. even the language and script.

Think about the kids!

Are they connected to the Punjabi culture at all? Can they relate to it? Or are they only dancing to despacito? ( sigh .. yuck )

Do you need to conduct Sunday Class at the Gurudwara?
Want something interesting to share with your young audience?

You know you need to play games with them to entertain and then sneak in a few lessons.

Don’t you want to introduce your young audience to the kind of music that our Spiritual Guidance was written to?
It’s a great way to get them to remember, and then sneak in some history lessons, some vocabulary. (history and spiritual vocabulary not covered in this course)

You could share with them:

What is a Raag?
How do Raags work? What’s interesting about them?
Why are they written in all the Titles, but never used nowadays?

What’s a Taal? How they work.
How Indian Taals can be so much cooler than western music.
The (quite simple) math behind the Taals.

Games to learn Taals.
Games to learn to recognize Raags.

I’m planning a re-do, a brand new production, of the online music lessons.

What’s going to happen is, they’ll be completely redone in up-to-date 2017 quality standards. You, will be able to access the courses on multiple devices.

  • your iPhone
  • your iPad
  • your Apple TV! (4th gen or higher)
  • your Android phone
  • of course as well as the computer via web browser

You’ll be able to go through the lesson on one device, and pick up on another later – right where you left off. All synchronized.

I’d really appreciate some feedback about this:

Please note, the intention of these workshops is to give you a basic to intermediate understanding of Indian Classical Music — the way WE have learned from our teachers, and observed from recordings of great artists.

I am myself a student. Ustadji himself says he is still a student and will always be a student. We do not claim to be THE experts or the know-all, final stop for all your answers. There is no 100% right or wrong.
We can do what we can do.
If you want to be able to get a similar result for yourself – you are welcome to learn from what we want to share. But a big component of your learning depends on you actually doing the exercises and being determined until you get it right. We will guide you the best we can.

We can get you to be able to enjoy playing Dilruba/Esraj/TarShehnai/Taus fluently and comfortably. — That is the limit of our promise.

You are encouraged to keep an open mind and be flexible. For example: if you learn something here, and later go to another teacher to further your exploration into music – be open to adjusting or even re-learning what you know. Indian Music has traditionally not been written down; as a result, a lot of different schools have different styles and interpretations of definitions.

Due to the digital nature of the content and service offered, there will be no refunds.

Workshop Costs, Workshop Access Duration, and Workshop Contents may change without prior notice. This is intended as a continuously evolving project.

Workshop flexibility

We are committed to you REALLY getting the workshops you sign up for.
3 Situations to keep in mind:
1) The lesson is too advanced for you .
If you can’t do the exercises at all – we’ll switch you to an easier workshop @ no charge.
2) The lesson is too easy for you.
If you’re a very quick learner and submit a video for review within 2 days – and your technique requires no modification or feedback … we’ll give you access to 1 more workshop to work on @ no charge. (only applies once per paid workshop)
3) You submitted a question or request for feedback within the workshop’s time limit – but we did not answer you on time.
You’ll either get an extension , or will be emailed a response.

    5. Interesting to hear the Bills coach essentially concede the AFC East during his postgame comments. Not that Ryan is wrong the Patriots are now three games up on the second place Bills but such candor when the schedule is barely half complete is unusual, even for him.Woodward added: ‘The biggest thing is this isn’t just Crewe Alexandra.

Many years ago my wife worked on the 49th floor of an Atlanta office building, and a pair nested outside her window every year. Beautiful birds. (I believe they, or a successor pair, still use that nesting site.) Also the (generic) Falcon is the mascot of the US Air Force Academy, and the Atlanta Falcons NFL football team.By utilizing cheap oakleys Sunglasses Online the 1s2p transition on the oxygen K edge (see Fig. 1d), that is, 3d8L1s3d8 (L denotes the ligand hole state), we evaluate the connection between the insulating phase behaviour and ‘self doping’ behaviour.

Players who decided to hunt through Portal 2’s sound files found recorded lines of dialogue that aren’t in the game more specifically, an increasingly agitated woman saying “I don’t want this!” If you’ve played the whole game you can Replica Oakley guess that’s actually (spoilers ahead) Caroline protesting her transformation into GLaDOS, but it still sounds kinda rape y if you don’t know the context. Simmons, who provides the voice for Caroline’s boss, purportedly refused to record his half of the scene because it was so disturbing. And, uh, that’s pretty much everyone, we think.
