Music India

" Music is a Painting drawn with invisible lines and colours of
sound on the canvas of silence. "

Indian MusicMusic is one of the oldest and finest forms of human expression. Without any doubt Indian music is one of the oldest unbroken musical traditions in the world. It is said that the origins of this system go back to the Vedas (ancient scripts of the Hindus).

The music of India includes multiple varieties of folk, popular, pop and classical music. Indian classical music has two traditional branches - Carnatic music and Hindustani music that have a history spanning millennia and, developed over several eras, remain fundamental to the lives of Indians today as sources of religious inspiration, cultural expression and pure entertainment.

The basis for Indian music is sangeet that is a combination of three art forms: vocal music, instrumental music and dance. Many musical instruments are peculiar to India. The most famous ones are the sitar (a plucked stringed instrument) and the tabla (a percussion instrument).

In recent times Indian music is dominated by Bollywood music and pop music. The strong presence of Indian songs and dances in Bollywood movies is an example of the importance of music in the life of Indians. We will provide you classes for all levels as well as the instruments needed.
