Course Summary

If the thought of playing Indian classical music on a Western instrument excites you, the Mandolin is an excellent option to give way! The stringed instrument was introduced to Carnatic classical music, but Hindustani classical music is rarely played on a Mandolin.

If you are experimentative and wish to learn to play Hindustani classical music on the Mandolin, this course by the accomplished Mandolin player Rajarshi Sengupta is an ideal bid for you.
