Course Details

Over the course of 12 weeks, each 1-hour session will help to improve the control of the muscles needed for singing using a variety of techniques. There are 5 basic steps that will be covered during the student's vocal gym and voice training: Hearing, Control of breath, Practice (Riyaz), and Physical and mental fitness. Students will be required to exercise their voice daily, which not only helps them to achieve better vocal clarity and culture but will also help to strengthen and protect their voice. They will learn how to sing vowels correctly and with proper annunciation, and develop a base within their voice.

Students will learn Swara patterns and how to customize and practice these in accordance with their own unique voice. Kharaj practices and breathing exercises will also be taught and should be practiced daily. Surbhi will also employ different western methods of voice training including bel canto among others. Students will discover their own vocal range and how to use their voice in different ways, depending on the song. They will gain a deep understanding of the Seven Notes used in Indian music and learn to sing notations. This course is open to all musical levels and can be undertaken by anyone wanting to learn the music.
