Veena Course for Intermediate-to-Advanced Students expands on the existing knowledge and techniques of veena players, with an emphasis on South Indian Carnatic tradition. Highly customizable and tailored to each individual enrolled, this course focuses on building skills, methods, and repertoire so each student can reach their goals, whether professional or recreational. Lesson plans, timelines, and goals for the course will vary from student-to-student. Dr. Sudhindra will meet with students in the beginning to establish educational needs and goals.
Students will learn advanced varnams and compositions, increasing their knowledge of music as a veena artist, as well as specialized techniques unique to Dr. Sudhindra, as well as techniques in the style of the famous Veena Chitti Babu. The knowledge imparted in this course will improve the ability of any student who chooses to enroll.
ABOUT THE TEACHER: Dr. Suma Sudhindra’s reputation speaks for itself, an award-winning career spanning nearly four decades and multiple recorded albums, with no sign of stopping. An accomplished and talented veena exponent, Dr. Sudhindra employs a blend of classical conservatism and modern interpretation in the style of the iconic Emani Chitti Babu as she leads the next generation of veena artists. She has been the recipient of many prestigious awards, including the Rajyotsava Award from the Karnataka Government in 2001, and has performed extensively in India and abroad, including tours of Europe and the United States. An artist, performer, leader, scholar, and cultural activist, Dr. Sudhindra has dedicated her life to furthering the reach of musical theory and expression. To this end, she is a fiercely passionate teacher dedicated to fostering the talents of her students.
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 1 or 2 students. It also gives teachers the opportunity, to gauge their students 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 long duration of this course, keeps the student inspired and motivated to achieve more.
The only prerequisite for this course is an understanding of veena basics and experience with playing varnams on the veena. Students must have their own instrument; any version of the veena will work, although the Saraswati veena is preferred in Carnatic style.
