Course Summary

In this course, you'll learn different ragas, like musical moods that bring out various emotions. These ragas have their own timings and melodies, and as you learn them, you'll build your musical skills.

Rhythmic and time-keeping concepts - Taal and Lay - are like the heartbeat of music. In this course - you will learn about different rhythmic concepts in depth. 

Even after practicing the ragas and other musical concepts on the flute, if you still find it difficult to play songs, don’t worry. You will receive notations for songs and learn to play songs by following them. Notations are like a musical map that guides you through the notes, making those challenging songs much easier to understand and play.
