This course reinforces the concepts of Swar Sadhana and patterning of Swaras by the repetitive practice of Alankars.

The idea of Swara mapping is introduced to the student by taking up simple songs like Jana gana Mana OR Honge Kamyab. Samooha Gaan or group singing has been an integral part of various cultures accross the world. The student learns ONE song out of the 4 songs given.

Pentatonic scale Bhupali has already been introduced in the previous course along with a Bandish. This course maps the Bandish learnt to the Swaras and the rhythm patterns of fours to Teentaal. The student is initiated into singing simple improvisation within the Taal structure. Raga Durga, another pentatonic Raga is introduced in this course.
