Description

This short-term course provides students with a basic foundational knowledge of Indian vocal music techniques and exercises. Lessons begin with introductory voice exercises and standing note practices, followed by more difficult muchchana exercises aimed at vocal development. Once the basics are covered, students will learn four chosen retro numbers to perform—anything from patriotic to devotional songs. 

This course is best for students who haven’t had any vocal training but possess an interest in music and singing. Students of Snehendu Naskar will have the opportunity to learn Indian vocal basics from an expert who has been singing for over a decade and will bring the skills he’s learned to each lesson. By the end of the 14 weeks, Mr. Naskar’s course will allow students to move from the basics to more intermediate training, should they choose. 

After successful completion of this course, students can gear themselves for the next course by Snehendu Naskar: Lessons for Beginner Vocalists and Playback Singers and Advanced Lessons in Indian Vocal Music
