We offer a special opportunity for uninitiated adults and working professionals to familiarise themselves with the fundamental concepts of melody, rhythm, composition, improvisation and various instruments in the context of Hindustani (North Indian) music. It is designed to combine instruction with live demonstration as well audio and video recordings. The course will be conducted in English/Hindi in two sessions of three hours each.
