Regular Bansuri Course:

The regular courses in Bansuri will go on for months and years together, depending upon the interest of the student to learn Bansuri. In regular course a lot of love, commitment and patience are needed from both the teacher and the student.

Initially we begin with the finding the right embouchure and fingerings and the right grip on the Bansuri.

Next we practice Alankaras. Alankaras are simple groups of notes “ornaments” which we practice to get the fingerings accustomed to playing the Bansuri.

After completion of basic alankaras we start with pre-composed Bandishes, Alaps and Taans in Raga Yaman, Raga Hamsadhwani and Raga Bhoopali.

Going forward, Spontaneous or extempore improvisations, gamakas, meends and various nuances in the bansuri music are practiced in ragas like Bihag, Madhuvanthi, Des, Miya Ki Malhar, Marwa, Pooriya Kalyan and many more ragas. These are learnt and practiced over a span of many years.

 

Course Classes:

Classes in our courses are conducted in individual one on one lessons. Weekly one lesson of the duration 30-40mins would be scheduled.

Once a student enrolls himself/herself, after prior discussion one time slot will be finalised and allotted for the classes and each week that time slot would be reserved for that student.

Monthly course fee is 8,000 INR per month ($125 in USD).

Bansuri Flute to Begin Learning:

The ideal scale depends upon the individual. For most of the people G Sharp scale flute would be convenient.

If one has long fingers he can begin learning with G Sharp and F sharp bansuri.

If one has short fingers he can begin learning with C natural medium and G Sharp bansuri.

The Bansuri we usually use in the solo concerts is of the scale E and D Sharp.

For those who don't already have a Bansuri and wish to learn from us, we can arrange to send a very fine, selected Bansuri. Do let us know.
