Course Details

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.

The ipassio Edge

Students enrolling for this course on ipassio can be sure that they receive individual attention from the teacher, as the class strength is limited to 1 or 2 students. It also gives teachers the opportunity, to gauge their student's progress in depth and make changes whenever and wherever required, to ensure the student gets the maximum out of this course. Since this course is detailed, students get the advantage of learning intricate details about this art form. The limited strength of the class also ensures that there is a strong bond between the students and their teacher clearing out any inhibitions that the student might have. The sustained guidance available from the teacher ensures that the student does not deviate from set goals or targets. Learning from a revered, experienced exponent of this art form, through the long duration of this course, keeps the student inspired and motivated to achieve more.

Course Specific Benefits

Students will be able to enjoy singing along with playing an instrument on their own! No need of accompanying artistes!

Prerequites

The student must own a Harmonium or Keyboard.
