And for students who don’t know the language and want to learn Gujarati songs to add some regional flavor to your performance list, the transliterated lyrics in English or any other language are available.

The right approach should be to find a good learning platform with a curated panel of experienced teachers. If you stay in Gujarat, you can find a teacher close by. But if you don’t stay in Gujarat and neither have a music academy in your city that offers Gujarati singing classes, you can opt for online Gujarati singing classes. Online learning platforms connect students with the best teachers from all across the world. And the learning process can be carried on unhindered by geographical or time constraints.
The course curriculum can only be customized if the student is opting for individual classes. And it holds for both online and offline classes. So if the student is very particular about his/ her learning objectives they should take up individual Gujarati singing classes.
One learning session stretches over 45 minutes to an hour.
