Each class is 60 mins long. The class will focus on teaching a combination of concepts from Carnatic classical music that would train and strengthen the student’s voice, and a popular song that will help the student connect the concepts learned in class with how they are applied in general. Raga Labs empowers the child to relate concepts learned in class with the broader cultural environment they live in so that the musical training is relevant to their life.
The teachers are handpicked and vetted personally by senior creative members of IndianRaga. The teachers will be IndianRaga Fellows in most cases, or professional performers who are exclusively invited by IndianRaga to share their insights and wisdom with students. Teachers are also provided training on how to effectively administer training online, keep the student engaged and interested, and focus on identifying their key strengths and weaknesses through a combination of in-person feedback and assignment evaluation.
Training in basics of Carnatic music teaches a student to identify notes and patterns, and develop a strong sense of musicality. By helping them relate the framework of notes to how a popular song can be learned, we enable them to apply their training in a way that helps them pick up new songs easily and form connections between what they have learned and what they listen to in daily life.
Raga Labs is not just one class per week, it is a more comprehensive learning ecosystem. There will be one online live class with a teacher to enable the student to get feedback, ask questions, and clarify key concepts. This will be followed by extensive practice modules provided to the student as assignments, where they practice the concepts using professionally produced backing tracks that help them perfect their pitch and rhythm, and submit assignments that are evaluated by our team to provide feedback on their growth. As they grow to higher levels, they will also have access to peer-learning and practice sessions conducted by senior students to supplement the live class and accelerate their growth.
There are three options based on class size. The smaller the class the more personalized attention the student gets, but the larger classes are great from a peer-inspiration perspective and for feeling part of a community. For a detailed list of benefits, please refer to the webpage above.
Remote collaboration is when musicians collaborate without meeting in person physically. Through a combination of Zoom calls, basic audio recording and video shoot using available resources at home, students are encouraged to collaborate effectively to produce high quality musical pieces. The most successful musicians today collaborate remotely, and we believe that especially as we practice social distancing during this time, this critical skill should be taught effectively to students from a young age.
Raga Labs is a part of the IndianRaga network which is the largest digital platform for Indian classical arts. Students who complete Raga Labs modules successfully are invited to feature in an end-of-class video that is professionally edited and showcased on the Raga Labs youtube channel that reaches millions of audiences. Audio and video for the same will be recorded by the student at home with the help of instructions provided by Raga Labs, and our team will put the final video together. This serves both as motivation for students to perfect their skills at each step and also to learn the basics of being a musician in the 21st century of social media and audio-video production.
Teachers may get featured in the final performance. The final showcase is meant to focus on the students and help them apply the concepts that they learned in that module. So Teacher participation is optional.
