Carnatic Music lessons
I offer classes to anyone interested in learning traditional Carnatic (South Indian Style) music. Typically my focus is more on teaching children starting age 9 and higher, but other students are also welcome.
At present, I reside in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and I teach over Skype and some in person classes depending on where students live.
If you're already studying Carnatic music and/or performing concerts, I can help you hone your singing and stage performance skills. I specialize in teaching advanced Carnatic techniques, such as Raga Alapana, Niraval, Kalpana Swaras and Ragam Thanam Pallavis.
Learning from a professional performing musician is very different compared to learning from people who specialize in teaching music. My focus will always be on stage performance type singing, which requires significantly more polishing than otherwise. On the flip side, it deals somewhat lesser with the theoretical aspects of music. The precision in thalam, alignment to sruthi, oozing of bhaava or feel in the music rendered are very important when giving a stage performance as is the focus on coordination with accompanying artists. Such a goal also requires a vast repertoire and plenty of variety. Yes, my focus is on teaching to perform rather than teaching how to sing Carnatic music.
I also believe that each individual must develop his / her talents on an individual basis. Some students are more receptive than others and every student takes a different developmental path in building their talent. The teacher must focus on building a musical foundation specific to the talent and weaknesses of the particular student. For instance, some students need more time and different types of exercises in achieving stability in rhythm or talam. Others take more time to align themselves to the Sruthi.
The type of classes I offer are customized to each student's potential and the maturity of their talent.
Secondly, most students tend to compromise on fundamentals in a hurry to move on to more advanced constructs or accumulate as many songs or geethams or krithis as they can. Ask yourself this - did you or your child learn every single lesson in the beginner's course (Sangeetha Bala Paatam)? Why or why not?
Thirdly, I emphasize on learning through listening - a student is likely to learn twice as much from a teacher when exposed to music that has been sung by the great artists of yesteryears and absorb the nuances. Cooking to taste often produces the best food. Likewise, developing a sharp ear for Carnatic music and enjoying great music is vital to developing one's musical skills. I share with students, the master pieces of Carnatic music that I have gathered through two decades of continuous listening to the highest quality of music that has been sung in the last 100 years.Where is covax facility?
