Vocal – Classical and Semi Classical

Classical music is the traditional music of northern areas of the Indian subcontinent, including the modern states of India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan. It may also be called North Indian classical music or Shāstriya Sangīt. Its origins date from the 12th century CE, when it diverged from Carnatic music, the classical tradition of southern parts of the subcontinent.Hindustani classical music has strongly influenced Indonesian classical music and Dangdut popular music, especially in instrumentation, melody, and beat. Besides vocal music, which is considered to be of primary importance, its main instruments are the sitar and sarod. Classical music can be divided into melody and rhythm; there is no concept of harmony.

The semi-classical form of music is actually a “style”, whereas Classical Music is a profound subject. This subject deals with theories, rules and their practical application which has evolved over hundreds of years. Each different form of classical music encompasses some set of rules and the performers are required to stick to them. Semi-classical music is basically a “folk” song which is presented by bringing out and highlighting the classical elements in these songs.

Instrumental – Synthesizer, Harmonium, Tabla, Guitar, Dholak etc

A synthesizer (often abbreviated as synth, also spelled synthesiser) is an electronic musical instrument that generates electric signals that are converted to sound through instrument amplifiers and loudspeakers or headphones. A harmonium, also called a “melodeon”, “reed organ” or “pump organ”, is a keyboard instrument that is a lot like an organ.The tabla is a membranophone percussion instrument originating from the Indian subcontinent, consisting of a pair of drums, used in traditional, classical, popular and folk music. The guitar is a fretted musical instrument that usually has six strings. The sound is projected either acoustically, using a hollow wooden or plastic and wood box (for an acoustic guitar), or through electrical amplifier and a speaker (for an electric guitar). The dholak is mainly a folk instrument, lacking the exact tuning and playing techniques of the tabla or the pakhawaj. The drum is pitched, depending on size, with an interval of perhaps a perfect fourth or perfect fifth between the two heads.

Dance – Kathak, Bharatnatyam, Semi Classical and Bollywood Dance.

Kathak is a North Indian style of dance which is derived from the word “Katha”, which means story telling. The Kathak dancers depict the mythological stories through the form of their dance using hand gestures, footwork and facial expressions. Kathak is known for its footwork, rhythms and spins executed by the dancer.

Bharatanatyam or Bharathanatiyam, is a major genre of Indian classical dance that originated in Tamil Nadu.

The steps and moves of semi-classical dance are not as complex or intricate as pure classical forms. However, the authenticity of the Indian dance form is preserved and students are able to grasp these lighter semi-classical dances easily. Semi-classical dances are fun and fluid.

Music and dance is an essential ingredient of Bollywood films (a reference to the Indian film industry). The dances combine Indian classical and western styles expressing the inner emotions of the dancer. It has universal appeal due to its combination of styles making it fun and accessible for all levels of ability.
