About the Course

This course will begin with a brief introduction to tala structure in the Carnatic music system. Afterwards, Mr Balaji will guide students through proper finger placement and playing posture. Once these lessons have been practiced and committed to muscle memory, Balaji will begin implementing primary mridangam lessons. These lessons include basic level practices that students will use for the duration of this educational series. These practices will help students build their awareness of rhythm through Mridangam.

As part of an educational series, this course’s prerequisite is Bombay C N Balaji’s first course, 'Introduction to Mridangam Music and Rhythm'. Upon enrollment, instructor Balaji will conduct an assessment to ensure retention of the lessons in the previous course. Successful completion will prepare students for Bombay C N Balaji’s next course in the series, 'Intermediate Mridangam'.
