Hindustani Classical Music is truly addictive, isn't it? Particularly, after you have discovered the hidden potential of your vocal chord and its ability to create music. 

It will help you in gaining a deeper knowledge and understanding of the development of the ragas. It will focus on the small intricacies of the raga music as well as on the badhat (development) and improvisation in a raga. 

In this course, the students will learn the advanced techniques that enable them to bring out the full potential of their voices! By the end of this course, a student will be able to present a Bada Khayal and at least two chota khayals in a raag along with self-improvised alaaps, sargams, and taans.
