Musical expression through the voice is regarded as one of the foundations in the art of Indian Classical Music. This course offers introduction to Classical Indian voice culture and singing styles, as well as the melodic concept of the raag, including composition and improvisation within a given raag (mode). There will be basic theory, traditional warm up exercises, learning about the rhythmic structures, in-depth practical work on two raags, and more. 
Suitable for all levels. With Mehboob Nadeem.

His performances as a sitar player and singer are unique & inspiring, and he also teaches regularly. [artist website]
