Course Summary

Children are like soft clay. They are at their best in receiving and assimilating new things. They are promising and open to endless possibilities. This is the right time to introduce them to classical music.

Music is like meditation for children. It soothes their minds, helps them develop concentration, and keeps them in a positive frame of mind. Guru Ma Nabo Parna has created a course that will induct your child into the world of classical music in a joyful manner. They will learn to sing ‘Sargam Geet’, Stotra, and more.

About the Course

The highlights of this course include -

  • Swar Parichay - The very basis of Hindustani classical music is on the 12 swaras (7 suddha swara and 5 vakra swara). Music is a language and the swaras are its alphabets. 
  • Introduction of Sargam - When you sing the swaras in sequence and in an ascending and descending order - it is the sargam. 
  • Breathing Control - At the introductory level, the students are taught to breathe deeply before singing or projecting their voices. As they learn more and practice regularly, they will learn to make better use of their breath while singing. 
  • Practice of Sargam - Singing the sargam in sequence, each note in its correct frequency in slow to fast tempo
  • Palta Practice - Palta includes making phrases out of one, two, or more notes or swaras and singing them in ascending (aarohan) and descending (abarohan)
  • Training of Voice Control, Throwing, and Modulations - Learning to play with the intensity of the voice that helps to express different emotions while singing
  • Taal Gyan - Rhythm is as crucial to music as voice training and intonation. Taal and Lay will be introduced to the children along with the sargam, palta and other songs. 
  • Stotra -  Each class will start Stotra path. Strotras are a powerhouse of positive vibrations and can energize our entire system.  
  • Guru Ma Naba Parna will teach to sing the stotras with correct pronunciation and intonation. She will teach - Mahamrityunjay Mantra, Guru Bramha Guru Vishnu Guru Devo Mahshwara and many such. Some child-friendly and easy-to-sing songs that will teach them the principles of Hindustani Classical music as well as make learning fun for them. A tentative list is presented here - 
    • Sargam Geet
    • Sri Krishna Govind Hare Murari
    • Chhote Chhote Gaiyan
    • Lakdi ki Kathi
