  • April 07, 2008 Nice introduction to Indian music

    I was amazed by the excellent introduction to Indian music for someone with Western classical background. It really helped my daughter who learns Wetern Violin to get a good translation of Indian violin pieces. It also helps her to integrate better both types of music. Having sheet music for Indian...

    music along with audio recording is a great blessing indeed. I would love to see more materials like this. I think this will be a great way to standardise Indian music for beginners both in India and in western countries.
