  • About the Course

    In this beginner course for playback singing by Pritha Majumder, the 1st & 2nd class of this course will focus on learning the musical notes, sargam, and breathing exercises. The 3rd & 4th will focus on the introduction and implementation of Ragas, the 5th & 6th will focus on learning simple songs and the 7th & 8th class would be on the summary and revision of ragas & songs. Continuing with the above, practical sessions in mastering more advanced songs and ragas shall be selected before entering the intermediate course, and hence this course would continue up to 3 months (12 weeks). Though it has been mentioned that this course would have 2 lessons per week, a student could opt for 1 or up to a maximum of 3 lessons if it suits both the teacher and the student. The mission and main objective of this course are to conduct a journey in which a beginner is transported to an intermediate level and more, while an already advanced singer is carried to the highest professional level of playback singing. For those unaware, as much as any playback singer may get compensated to record for even a hit film, it can never match up to what he/she makes by performing in a single live concert. However, the remuneration of a singer for a live show depends on what market value has been built from his / her released material, with a special edge if that has been for Bollywood. Hence it is imperative to be able to tackle both studios and live singing with equal efficiency. Though it may sound strange to some, the art of rendition in both these types of occasions are very different from one another.
