This course is a long term course for students wishing to learn the sliding guitar or Mohan Veena. Students enrolling for this course start by learning the 10 Thaats or musical scale based ragas. Thāat is a mode in northern Indian or Hindustani music.

The course will simultaneously train students on the finger technique to use on the Indian slide guitar. Further on in the course the students will be taught vadi, samvadi and nash swara of the basic raga, bandish and the taal system. Students will be supervised to practice five basic ragas like Yaman, Raag Bhupali, Raag Kirwani, Raag Todi and Maru Bihag. This course apart from teaching students about different ragas, talas and bandish will also touch on topics like loop, phrases, bandish in different rhythmic cycle, taan and bistaar with the bandish.

About Rhitom Sarkar: Rhythm is a companion for Rhitom, whose very name rhymes with ‘rhythm’. He started learning the guitar at the age of nine, under the guidance of Pt. Debashish Bhattacharya, continuing for ten long years. After a brief stint under the guidance of Mr. Debotosh Dey, a guitarist playing for the All India Radio, Rhitom joined another stalwart Pt. Shyamalal Chatterjee, a sitar exponent to satiate his desire for music and learning. He went on further to educate himself on Hindustani music by training under tabla maestros, Shubhankar Banerjee and Pt. Samar Saha. He continued his learning odyssey training under Pt. Ajoy Chakroborty (Vocal), Pt. Budhadeb Dasgupta (Sarod). His inclination to master the revered music forms of both the east and west saw him receive taleem in incorporating Classical Music in Spanish (Western) Guitar under the guidance of music composer-director Sri Madhu Mukherjee. The amount of training Rhitom received is in itself proof of the dedication the young man has had to master music, and so he has. Rhitom has through his career cut through multiple albums and won accolades and awards in the dozens such as the "SUR-O-MANI" Award from Sur Singar Samsad, Mumbai, "A Grade" Artist from AIR, prestiguous "Trisaptika Kala Ratna Award" and "Sangeet Yuva Ratna Award" from Art and Cultural Trust of India. He was also awarded Senior Scholarship under the Government of India, Ministy of Culture and State Scholarship of Rajya Sangeet Academy. He is an empanelled artist by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) and Eastern Zonal Cultural Centre (EZCC). He now spends his time training students from across the globe, sharing from the immense stockpile of knowledge he has acquired from his revered gurus.
