This course for all levels is an introduction to classical music for individuals in string instrumental music, best for those who have not played a string instrument before or are just beginning to learn. Students will begin by learning the different parts of their instrument and their significance, followed by how to properly hold the body and strike the strings and tune their instruments. Once those basics are learned, students will be educated on Sargam, the practice of singing the notes of a composition, as this increases the understanding of tones before playing them on the instrument.
