Of particular interest to many of our students or even the parents of our child students is the devotional quality that these courses emphasize. Students are introduced to sacred Sanskrit chants for peace and harmony in all of the courses. Our goal is not only to develop vocal skill but also to sing with Bhaava, with great feeling and awareness. For students of the program, this is also an opportunity to be introduced to the ancient stories and life lessons associated with the Vedic literature that finds expression in many of the Kirtans and Musical pieces.

Each program includes time for singing practice, as well as musical theory.

Although voice work is our primary focus, we also spend some time on training the ear through music appreciation – examining musical pieces from different parts of India and the world. This is towards developing the musician’s understanding and familiarity with different types of musical sounds and styles.

All of the musical elements are taught along with contexts and meaningful translations.
