Course Details

For a beginner, one of the very first lessons that a Guru teaches is Sruti. Sruti plays an integral role in the music. This is considered as the 'key' in western music. Eventually, Sruti is known as the soul of Carnatic Music. One of the very first forms of Carnatic music is the Saralivarisai. This is also known as the exercise that makes people extremely familiar with the Swaras and the Sruti. This assists in learning various combinations of the Swaras that are possible. Then it comes to the Jantavarisai which is the next level of Saralivarisai. In this specific exercise, you are going to be trained properly on how to sing with Sruti and what is the major way of handling the Swara correctly. After that, the Guru teaches Swarajathi. It is known as the whole combination of Swaras and songs.

Students will also learn the history of music. They will be introduced to Sapta Swaras as Sa(Do), Ri(Re), Ga(Mi), Ma(Fa), Pa(So), Da(La), Ni(Ti). Then the teacher will proceed further to teach with Janta Varisai, Dhattu Varisai, Mantra Sthayi Varisai, Thara Sthayi Varisai. Then the teacher will introduce students to Thalams, Thalams is stated as Alankaram. Students will also be practising alankaram with different ragas.

As we know Carnatic music is the base for singing our favourite songs & film songs too. Without knowing raga, rythm correctly it won't be nice even to hear and the feel also will not be soothing for listeners & viewers too. Students need to be practice to get raga & thala correctly. Once the base is set perfectly then you can learn any time of krithis easily & perfectly. In the first few lessons itself, you will know how to approach single notes & should emphasize on different raga's. In the first few lessons, the teacher will teach the students how to stress & support even a certain note.
