Introducing for the 1st time in India, a Hindustani Vocal curriculum which has been conceptualised, designed and created solely with the aim of getting our students to become buddies with the subject and have looooooots of fun!!
The course has been developed, composed and arranged by Chin2 Bhosle and includes backing tracks and a super fun method of learning a subject which traditionally has been perceived as 'heavy' and cumbersome by most students making their foray into the subject.
Our students, on completion of Grade 1 would know/ have touched upon - 
- the 10 thaats
- Raags - Yaman Kalyan, Bhupali, Bilaawal
- Chords (how to form basic chords and accompany themselves as singers - Never done before!)
- Singing in sargam and aakaaar
- Singing in harmony (never done before!)
- Note values - western notation reading (rhythm,  pitch and accents)
- Song writing (elements of and how to write a song)
- Composing and singing aalaaps (raag based)
There has never been such a comprehensive Hindustani Vocal curriculum in this country and we can truly say that, with this curriculum, our students are not just assured but guaranteed that learning - Sangeet is Fun!!
