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 one. 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 duration of this course, keeps the student inspired and motivated to achieve more.
The student should just be keen enough to learn music in general. As a beginner's course, no prerequisites are required before enrollment. Students will need pen and paper to take notes and a Santoor of their own for practice.
