Course Details

This intermediate course is aimed at helping the students specialise on the sarod as an instrument. It will help them gain deeper insight into Hindustani music. Deeper insight will help them hold good, to be able to practise Hindustani classical music on any other instrument. Lessons on Hindustani music will teach students more on the intricacies associated with each taal and raag. Emphasis will be laid on the technical understanding of the sarod, the different playing techniques as well as dedicated practise of Indian classical music in its varied forms. This intermediate course will revise the ragas already learnt by the student in the beginners course e.g yaman, raag bhairav etc. The training will also cover theoretical as well as practical application of Indian music, over and above understanding sarod. Further, it will concentrate on correction of technique, if necessary, thereby venturing into new ragas, gats, taals, bandishes.

If the student wishes to learn to play Hindustani or Indian classical music on a stringed instrument, especially sarod. Here is another course tailored by Abhishek Borkar: Basics Of Sarod | Hindustani Classical | Know How To Play Sarod

About Abhishek Borkar: Born to Pt. Shekhar Borkar, Abhishek was fortunate to have the legendary sarod player as a doting father and his first teacher. Starting out early under the aegis of his father practising the musical styles of the Maihar Senia Gharana, Abhishek has come a long way. Like his father Abhishek has been able to carve out a niche for himself getting respect, adulation and innumerable awards in the process. Abhishek apart from his father draws his inspiration from Ustad Allauddin Khan, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Pt. Nikhil Banerjee highly skilled exponents of hindustani classical music. Having trained equally well in western music, Abhishek is able to perform soothing fusion music combining Indian and western elements. He is a performing member of the band named ‘Brahma Naad’ and has travelled the length and breadth of the country and places abroad as a member or solo artist.
