What are Raga Centers?

Raga Centers ​(Raga literally means that which colors the mind) ​follow IndianRaga’s award-winning approach to music education, perfectly balancing authenticity and rich concepts from tradition with modern-day relevance for a global, 21st century ​learner and ​performer. We teach not only the traditional compositions and styles but also modern-day concepts such as projection, dynamics and presentation techniques for today’s performers to shine both on a live stage and in a professional recording setup. Instructors at Raga Centers bring wisdom from rigorous training and are further trained by IndianRaga Teacher Training Modules to impart instruction in a way that inspires and empowers ​the ​young ​and adults!

Meaning of Raga
1) There is a saying in Sanskrit – “Ranjayathi iti Ragah” – which means, “that which colours the mind is a raga.
2) A raga or raag (literally “colour, hue” but also “beauty, melody“)
