About the Course

Carnatic Music is the classical music of South India and is one of the most soul-soothing music genres. The 1-on-1 Online Carnatic Vocal Course by Ramya T. will help the students to lay a strong foundation of this music genre. This foundational course will first help the students acquaint themselves with breathing and vocalization techniques, required for picking up singing skills. Mentor Ramya will introduce her students to Sarali Varisai, Dhatu Varisai, and Janta Varisai, which are the fundamental exercises of the Swaras or the notes of Carnatic music. Through these exercises, students will get control over the notes and their combinations. 

Mentor Ramya will help her students to understand the elements of Carnatic vocal music through the ‘Aadi Taalam’ and the ‘Maayamalavagowla Ragam’. She will encourage and guide her students to attempt small improvizations and create their own little melodies within the raagam and taalam. This will help students to overcome the creative blocks in their learning journey.
