North Indian Classical (Hindustani), Jazz & other styles of music
I do offer lessons for various styles of music 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. In this way I want to promote the Bansuri as an instrument, but also the possibility to get truly into the Indian Classical Music as well.
In my teachings I can cover:
- fundamental technique to control the instruments
- 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 (Taal, Raag)
– Jazz & Western Music (general music theory)
- … and much more, due to the needs of the participants
For students taking private online lessons or participating in the flute classes in Auroville there also is an internal area on this webpage, where additional teaching material will be provided.
