The concept of study plans have been newly introduced on Acharyanet to guide Carnatic Music students with a step by step learning program. The video lessons are arranged in an orderly fashion as one would learn from a teacher and progress can be tracked at any time. Each lesson includes a checklist to ensure that you master the skills required of that lesson. At the end of the each module, students may also take the quiz to complete the theory sections. At any point of time during the learning program, students are encouraged to use the personalized feedback button to upload their rendition and obtain feedback from an expert. This will ensure that the student learns correctly and masters the skills required.

 
We have currently launched the first study plan based on the Perfecting Carnatic Music Level 1 book and will cover more topics in the future including intermediate and advanced topics as well.

 

The Perfecting Carnatic Music Level 1 syllabus is based on the book with the same name, brought forth by Sangeet Samrat Chitravina N Ravikiran. The book serves as an excellent reference for students who are beginning to learn Carnatic Music and used widely by many teachers and students all over the world.

 

The book contains theory and notations for varisias, alankarams, 28 geethams and 2 swarajathis. The book has been divided into 3 study plans to make learning easier and all learning plans include comprehensive video lessons taught by Sangeet Samrat Chitravina N Ravikiran, tips for mastering lessons, quizzes and additional help in the form of personalized feedback if needed.

 
In addition, Acharyanet also offers certification of these study plans through an online exam for those interested in  additional milestones!

 

The study plans are offered FREE for all Acharyanet Members who are in the Basic or Premium plans. To enroll as a member, click here.
