This module is meant for beginner students of Carnatic music or anyone who is considering learning Carnatic music. Through detailed examples and selectively picked techniques, the lessons offer a launchpad for your understanding and training in this style of music, and how you can become a better musician through it.
Professional performer and teacher Lalit Subramanian gives you a snapshot of how Carnatic music is taught, and how that helps you become a better performer in any genre of your choice. See the lesson ‘Carnatic Music : Learning Methodology and Benefits’ to learn what you can expect as a student of Carnatic music.
In the subsequent lessons, Lalit performs as if he were a student growing through various stages of learning Carnatic music. This will help you understand how you can expect to sing as a beginner, intermediate or advanced student if you put in a fairly consistent and dedicated effort. To make it more broadly accessible, Lalit offers two lessons on this module – one with a Carnatic krithi as an example for those who are already familiar with this style of music, and another with a Bollywood song as an example for those who may not be familiar with Carnatic music. Both will help you learn how you can evolve as a musician who can create, improvize and achieve technical mastery over music and performance through learning Carnatic music!
By the end of this module, students will have a good idea of what to expect as a student of Carnatic music, and how it can benefit them in becoming better performers in any genre of their choice. This module is highly recommended for all students, their parents if the student is a child, and for anyone curious about Carnatic music. You do not need any prior knowledge to be able to benefit from this course.
