This tailor-made online 1-on-1 course is for beginners who wish to learn either classical or light vocal music along with Harmonium or Keyboard. In this course, students can choose to learn either classical music or light music or both. In case the student chooses to learn both, classical as well as light vocal music, the overall course duration may accordingly increase. In classical music, students will be taught the basics of Indian vocal music and Harmonium or Keyboard along with the techniques of voice production and play techniques. The course will grow gradually from basic notes to Indian Ragas. Light vocal music will include the singing of Bhajans or Sufi music or Ghazals and some famous Bollywood songs. Students will need to select the zone they would like to pursue. The lessons in this course are designed for beginners and therefore will be focused on comparatively easy songs. Once the student completes this course, Sonal Shah Ji can plan and design another course focused on the songs of student's choice and even for tougher songs.
