    Course Details

    This long term course will create a sound foundation of teaching students the very fundamentals of hindustani classical that relies heavily on the saptak, otherwise known as 7 notes (Sa, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Ni, Sa) to sargams that will train students on using a variety of combinations of the mentioned seven notes. It will educate the students on some of the basic ragas, which is a melodic way or manner of expressing music in Indian classical music both through way of an instrument or vocals as well as taals that relate to rhythm and tempo in a composition.
