More details about the program


A Hindustani Classical Music performance acquires that mystical element mainly due to its improvisational nature. However, the form and structure of a performance is quite well-defined, and followed by all irrespective of the style.This course begins with explaining the structure of the two basic forms most prevalent today, the Khayal for Vocal performance, and the Alaap, Jod, Jhala and Gat for some instruments.Later on, the course delves into how a composition is used as a platform to develop and expand on the Raga. Ample demonstration explains how various musical material is created for the purpose, ranging from the slow melodic designs, Alaap, to fast embellishments, the Taan, which become the primary improvisational tools. Lastly, the course also goes on to explain the accompaniment on the harmonium or the sarangi, and the role of the tanpura.In addition to quizzes and assessment exercises, this course uses guided listening sessions to explain the performances, and also contains listening and practice lessons to help students experience more Ragas.This course was developed in collaboration with Ragasphere and practical performance assignments are powered by MusicCritic.
