Intermediate Kritis and Keerthanams

by Aishwarya Vidhya Raghunath

Intermediate Kritis and Keerthanams takes place in 60-minute lessons, once weekly, for the duration of 24 weeks. Designed for aspiring artists and hobbyists alike, this course endeavors to inspire an appreciation for the beauty of Carnatic music. An in-depth understanding of Kritis and Keertanams within a raga is an essential approach to manodharma (the complete understanding of the raga). As an intermediate course, students will need a basic understanding of Carnatic music before enrollment.

<p>This course, personally designed by instructor Aishwarya Vidhya Raghunath, provides students with a thorough understanding of kriti and keerthanams musical compositions. Aishwarya teaches that only by truly understanding the raga bhava, can a kriti performance become elevated to a musical experience beyond a mere rendition. Through the instruction of Aishwarya, students learn a repertoire that will enrich their understanding of music, enabling them to embark on the next lessons of manodharma - alapana, neraval, and swaram.</p>
