The beginning lessons in Carnatic music were created about 500 years ago by the great composer Purandara Daasa and are still in use today. Whether you are a beginner or an expert in Carnatic music, whether you sing or play an instrument, these exercises will improve your technique. In singing, they strengthen your voice and they will help anyone hit the swarasthanas correctly. These lessons are meant for beginners but all students of music would be wise to practice them regularly.
The Lessons are listed below, along with a brief description. Be sure to read "Before you begin" before starting.
