Bansuri Classes

Auroville logo

I am offering ongoing classes (groups) and private lessons under the Auroville Activity “ARA – Awareness Research Auroville“. With you participation you are also supporting ARA and the development of the International Township of Auroville.

North Indian Classical (Hindustani), Jazz & more

Flute Classes AV - plain

I do offer lessons for all styles on the Indian Bamboo Flute, the Bansuri. My personal background is Jazz on the guitar, but I recognized the Bansuri as a fully mature instrument on which you can play all sort of musical styles. By myself I focus on Hindustani Music, but the technical basics on this flute can be used for any other styles as well.

We will cover:

  • fundamental flute technique (posture, blowing, fingering)
  • usage of a drone to get good intonation
  • usage of metronome to develop rhythm feel
  • music theories, but practical playing approach goes first
    – North Indian Hindustani Classical Music
    system of taal (Tala) and Raag (Raga)
    – Jazz & Western Music
    general basics, and as needed advanced
  • … and much more, due to the needs of the participants
