Philosophy

Not confining to a particular Gharana, Sangeet Sadana has developed a unique style of rendition which forms the signature of the institution by imbibing the specialties and core positive qualities of Aghra-Atruali and Patiala Gharana. Music means Shruti; it means purity of the 7 notes that exists in the universe to produce the sooth of peace. Upon the rise of various styles and genres of music and the mindsets which consider music to be only entertainment, we are here at Sangeet Sadhana to cast different innovations to make the process of learning classical music, an interesting and an attractive one. Music oscillating at Sangeet Sadhana is a package enriched with the constructive influences of different gharanas; the melodic approach to the Khayal gayki style and elongated alaap of Agra-Atrauli Gharana and the ornamentation of intricate taans of Patiala gharana are very well evident. Sangeet Sadhana reflects the principles and attributes acquired from Deepali Masi.Flawlessness in rendition comes into picture only when we prioritize swar positions and shruti. The same maintains the purity of music. Getting engrossed in its melody takes you to a different world where spirituality is invoked and embraced. The sense of satisfaction and enlightenment will then be all ours when we embrace the transcending transitions between the magical entities of music. No asset in the world is equivalent to the realness gifted to us by the divinity of this art. Being fortunate enough to experience such a pleasing wonder, culture and magic in itself is a privilege. Such is the power of music which delights every individual with its audio treat and sense of amusement that music has to mesmerize us with. Beyond the boundaries and conventions, rules and grammars and all the other technicalities pertaining to music, celebrating the expression and emotion of rendition stands ultimate.
