      Course Details

      Sandip Chatterjee will begin this course by introducing students to the Santoor, detailing the construction and purpose of each element of the instrument. Afterward, students will learn proper posture, positioning, and handling of the instrument during play to ensure each note is played with clarity. As students become more comfortable with their instrument, sargams and tuning will be covered next. With practice and discipline, each student will develop an ear for tune and learn to hear when their instrument is ready for a tune-up. Lastly, Chatterjee will guide students through detailing on Sur and Tala, as well as introducing chandams and ragas to the new musicians.
