I am offering teachings 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.
Due to the shut down all over India, the classes are postponed!
Online lessons are still possible!
North Indian Classical (Hindustani), Jazz & more
I do offer lessons for various styles of music on the Indian Bamboo Flute, the Bansuri, and the Guitar. 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 (esp. for the Bansuri)
- 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
