Indian Classical Music

"Art of combining sounds or sequences of notes into harmonious patterns pleasing to the ear and satisfying to the emotions; melody."

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything. Music is the art of sound in time, organized to the principles of pitch, rhythm, and harmony. An important function of music is its capacity to communicate emotions and special moods, a view that has been agreed upon by both music performers and music listeners. Indeed, almost all known forms of music have been recognized for their affective emotional qualities. Hindustani music, one of the two principal types of South Asian classical music, found mainly in the northern three-fourths of the subcontinent, where Indo-Aryan languages are spoken.

VISION

Hindustani Classical Music program at Deep's Dancing Diva's aims to introduce this music tradition to any music motivated learner by combining theoretical and practical teaching approaches. Music has no barriers, neither language nor age hence the Course is open to all age group starting from 4. The course covers the fundamental elements of Indian Classical Music, from the Swara (note) and Laya (tempo) to the concepts of Raga (melodic framework) and Tala (rhythm framework). Then we take a closer and more detailed look at the Raga and the relative importance of musical notes used, through the Vaadi and Samvaadiswara, and also explains the language of the Tabla, and how this is used to aesthetically structure the Awartan of the Tala. Lastly, explaining the structure of the basic forms of Classical music most prevalent today like Tarana, Thumri, Alaap, Tan.

The two frames of the Raga and the Tala come together to form the Bandish, the composition. The course explains the need for this, and how this happens, with a lyric also being included in the composition. The continuous spectrum of the tempo of compositions, ranging from the slowest, the Vilambit, through the Madhya, on to the fastest, the Druta is explained through illustrations. We then go on to understand the internal structure of the Bandish, and how the Bandish becomes a tool for development during a performance. Along with Hindustani Classical music, we also cover bhajans, semi-classical and light Indian music. Students will receive feedback through a series of quizzes and by submitting practical performance assignments that are evaluated by assistance of Smt. Sanjukta Sarangi (All India Radio Artist) who is a recognized examiner at both Akhil Bharatiya Gandharva Mahavidyalaya University and Chandigarh University. Students will be receiving certificates for their intermediate courses from the Music School run by Smt. Sanjukta Sarangi at Bhubaneswar Odisha (every six months). When a student is fully prepared for the Course they can enroll for the various levels at Chandigarh University and will be awarded with Certificate from University directly.
