Learning Bansuri

First the blowing technique and finger positions are taught. Then moving through playing the basic scale ( SA RE GA MA PA DHA NI SA) we move then onto Allankars which are patterned exercises to create enough dexterity on Bansuri to begin the actual music itself, which is India Raagas.

The journey of Indian Music  is intriguing as it actually teaches how to improvise, which in a way is a paradoxical idea! Indian music in its advanced stages is mostly all about improvisation but to build up to that there is huge amount of musical knowledge available to help us .

Indian Raagas are a limitless journey in music and there is no end to their variety and complexities, even one Raaga can be practiced for years and still bring new delights. Once the taste for Raagas develops in can become an extremely rewarding experience to get to know them and play them.
