Preface

About ten years back my father advised me to prepare graded text books in music for the use of students. Consequent on his persistent advice I started preparing my graded lessons in music in Malayalam. These books took shape in the form Karnantaka Sangeetha Pretamala and were completed in six parts covering all the aspects of karnatic music. With the persistent of my well wishers and requests from teaching and student quarters I have planned these series in English.

In this second series of Karnatic music reader I have tried to present karnatic music lessons in a systematic manner starting from the fundamental lessons like Saralivaris, Jantavarisa, Alankaram, Gitam, Swarajathi, Jathiswaram etc. comprising into 4 parts part 1 contains fundamental lesson second part consists of Varnas of different composers, part 3 contains Keertans of various composers. The present part consists of Daru Varna, Pada Tillana, javali, Ragamalika, Divyanamavali, Thiruppugazh, Thevaram, Kavadi chindu and Utsava sampradaya keertans. The compositions are representative in nature and the literature and compositions are so cast that it is not possible to include them in this small volume on musical forms. However the compositions present a good selection of these forms, the svara notation has been kept as simple as possible so that the learner can study the lessons with the minimal help from his teacher. I have also included a description of the various musical forms at the beginning of the notation section so that the students can understand the musical forms. This will also help them in rendering them. It is suggested that the students take the lessons in a graded way and practice them in a regular way so that they achieve a better knowledge of the fundamentals of Karnatic Music.

In each group simple notation with the text has been given for the easy rendering of these compositions. A thorough learning of these fundamentals will give a strong base for the students in their coming year. It is suggested that the student master the compositions each group before attempting the next group. It is also suggested that they should not try to skip the lessons in each group before going to the next group. Each composition has its own merit in understanding the tala, raga etc. so that it will be beneficial for the students to obtain proficiency in these aspects. I have tried to the minimize the number of ragas so that the students is not put to very technicalities of the raga rendering and its intricacies. This will put him in good stead in mastering the advanced lessons in Karnatic Music.

To a great extent I have been guided by the requirements of the music students of the colleges though this has not restrained me from keeping the paramount interest of the learners and listeners of karnatic music. Though these lessons are complete in its own way it will be helpful for the student to make use of a teacher in learning the fundamentals of the raga tala etc. this will instill in him a confidence in learning karnatic music.

I use this opportunity to thank the students and teachers and lovers of music who have extended wholehearted support for my book. Without this continuous encouragement I would not have continued to write. When all is said it is not urban theoretician had the simple unsophisticated rustic village teacher who sustains the art form and saves it from extinction.

I am thankful to Sri M. Easwaran editor for his continued support in the editing of the manuscript and Smt. M. Ginja proprietor CBH publication for undertaking the publication of this series.

Lastly I place these series before the learners and lovers of music and ask for their critical comments about this venture and expect their wholehearted support in making this series success.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
