Raga Centers: Carnatic Vocal Classes, Registration Form



Beginner courses cover the fundamentals of Carnatic classical music starting with Basic Note Patterns (Sarali Swaras). The students then continue learning complex note patterns and develop strong vocal techniques before being introduced to Geethams and simple songs that will give them the ability to perform in small group settings.

Course timings: 5-5:45 pm

Intermediate courses build on the Beginner course and take the student’s learning to the next level! Students learn varnams to develop strong knowledge of ragas and prepare the foundation for improvization (manodharmam) that will help them create their own melodies and note patterns. In addition, students learn a rich and varied set of songs and krithis that will help them build a meaningful repertoire that they can use to perform short pieces on stage.

Course timings: 4-5 pm
