-- A Two-Day Music Learning & Discovery Course --
In the tradition established by his father, the late Acharya Roop Verma, Arjun Verma is offering a spring course in North Indian Classical Music. This is a unique opportunity for musicians from all walks of life to explore the playing techniques, repertoire, rhythms, melodic structures, improvisation techniques, performance practice and profound depth of this powerful music.
Participants will learn foundational concepts of tālas (rhythmic forms) and morning and evening rāgas (melodic forms) while developing vocal and instrumental proficiency, skill and control. The versatile concepts taught in this course can also be applied to enrich one's playing of other forms of music, as well as to expand one's general artistic sensibilities.
This course is suitable for all melodic instruments and voice, as long as students have a basic playing ability. Beginning sitarists are welcome but should inquire ahead of time about special preparation for the course. Bring your own instrument of choice. Sitars may also be available for rent.
