Carnatic Music Classes

The LEAP program (Learn- Engage - Advance- Perform) is a goal oriented program on instruction in Carnatic music that is focused on developing musical skills steadily and systematically within the framework of classicism and grammar. The program will maintain balance among bhavam, bhakti, ragam, talam and sahityam in developing the musical acumen of the students. The program emphasizes mutual appreciation rather than competition among students to build their competence.

Information sessions will be held from 3 PM - 5 PM on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays every month.
