Sangeet Sadhana’s educational philosophy is to blend a strong foundation in theoretical studies with practical demonstrations. Innovative and popular educational aids like info-graphics, are used to introduce nuances of the art to the younger generation. While teaching the training is open towards creativity and finding new avenues of expression. Our classes and teaching methods are planned to help students to grasp key concepts, understand its dynamics, quickly and thoroughly.

Pure and Semi classical Approach – We have 3 levels Basic, Intermediate and Advanced

Classical Music has an insatiable thirst for variety. In Sangeet Sadhana we have few methodical approaches for satiating this thirst:

  1.  To express Ragas in different styles – like the Khayala, Tarana, Tappa and other light classical styles like Thumris, Dadra, Ghazals, Bhajans having borrowed aesthetic beauties from certain ragas, talas and their contours and ornaments.
  2. To render raagas in different Gharana Styles.
  3. To fuse Ragas with new scales or mixed varieties 

Non Classical Approach

  • Music appreciation –  listen to different musical styles, learn cool facts from the history of music, and learn to recognize different instruments from the orchestra. Relate melodies and rhythms to some of the songs and sounds that you already know and love.
  • Music as a form of artistic expression – Studio and Proper pronunciation techniques , experiencing the charm of music , understanding the composition and singing with feel.

Instrumental Music approach

  • Fingering Techniques of improving or modifying the quality of sound production in order to increase the aesthetic effects are emphasised. Some of these embellishments are kana or grace notes, kampan or tremor, krintan or pizzicato , zamzama, midh or portamento or glissandi, Ladi( quick tremolo strokes) are taught with fine detailing in order to appreciate the subtleties involved in playing String Instruments like SAROD, SITAR, MOHANVEENA, VIOLIN
  • Transposition techniques - understanding the blowing techniques in case of Wind instruments like BANSURI
  • Understanding the Theka - Sound production and rhythmic practices in case of Percussion instruments like TABLA

In Sangeet Sadhana Gata ( vilambit and drut gat )compositions with khayal gayaki aanga are taught following a traditional aalap-jod-jhala-gat sequence.

Significance of Learning process in Sangeet Sadhana

In this process of learning the first part comes from the teacher or the preceptor, the second part through the practice of the devotion of the student himself (The Sadhana), the third part emerges from the contact and interaction of other students – The last is the product of alchemy of time

Batch size and timings for the class and Course selection Process

A scientific understanding of the musical aesthetics is an absolute prerequisite for practising quality music. Here we believe in authenticity and quality education.

  • At Sangeet Sadhana we have created separate batches, each batch size consists of 10 people with complete 1×1 interaction with the interpreter. Each class duration is about 1.5 to 2 hrs. Classes happens in all Weekdays and Weekends.
  • You have the Flexibility to choose your Batch timings.
