Preface

Lakhs of compositions - Thousands of Ragas - Hundreds of exercises - that is our Carnatic Music which is very rich in its resources. Carnatic Music is one of oldest form of the Classical Music Systems in the world. Over the centuries, it has been developed as the finest art form by the great masters of Carnatic Music. Though all the works have been documented and there arc many books that cover the various aspects of Carnatic Music, most of them are in “Letter or Script Notation System.”

Indian Carnatic Music in a recognizable universal format will make our Music works comprehensible by a large majority of Western and Indian Musicians who are familiar with Staff Notation System only.

The primary motivation in writing this book was to put together the basic exercises in the universal Western Staff Notation System which is a great tool for disseminating Musical information.

Western Staff Notation System is easy to learn, more graphical and gives a complete picture of the Music Score.

Thanks to Shri .M Easwaran of CBII Publications in showing interest in this project and publishing this Series.

I would like to thank to my family members and all friends who had been very appreciative of this endeavour.

Introduction

The Sound Of Music

How do we define Music? Any sound which is pleasant to hear can be Music to ears. Well, this will depend upon person to person, as what is pleasant to one may not be so for the other. A more technical definition for Music is "The organization of sounds with some degree of rhythm, melody and harmony"

Carnatic Music

Out of the many forms of Classical Music in the World, Indian Carnatic Music is one of the oldest systems. Indian Music had its origins in Vedas. The South Indian Music System had its origins from the Ancient Sangam Period.

Perfection of a systematic approach to train students of Carnatic Music was done by Purandara Dasa during the 16th Century.

Exercises

Purandara Dasa, sometimes called the father of Carnatic Music, not only composed thousands of Krithis, but also created a set of repe- titious practice exercises called "Swaravali", "Alankaras", "Geethams" etc which over time has become the standard lessons for the beginners in Carnatic Music.

These exercises are in existence for the last many centuries and are the proven tools for any beginner.

Objective

Though there are umpteen numbers of books which give these exercises, there is a void when it comes to catering to the need of a student who is interested in practicing these exercises on a Musical instrument. The objective of this book is to fill this void and give the student a complete graphical interface for practicing these exercises on a musical instrument.

This book is obviously not meant for the experts. Effort has been taken to make the book simple to comprehend and therefore complex technical terms have been avoided, as much as possible.

Prerequisite

The only prerequisite for reading this book is "Interest" to learn Carnatic Music.

How to use this book?

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
