  • About the Course

    This course, personally designed by instructor Aishwarya Vidhya Raghunath, provides students with a thorough understanding of kriti and keerthanams musical compositions. Aishwarya teaches that only by truly understanding the raga bhava, can a kriti performance become elevated to a musical experience beyond a mere rendition. Through the instruction of Aishwarya, students learn a repertoire that will enrich their understanding of music, enabling them to embark on the next lessons of manodharma - alapana, neraval, and swaram.
