A collection of six Indian raags (3 Hindustani and 3 Carnatic), re-imagined for piano, and simplified for fledgling pianists (both children and adults). The purpose is to provide an introductory experience of classical Indian music-making in an easy, hands-on way at a piano, offering a very accessible first encounter with improvisation. It is designed for near-beginners through to early intermediate players, and can be used as a stepping stone to the 258-page book for more advanced pianists: How to Play Indian Sitar Raags on a Piano (Intensely Pleasant Music, 2016). Indian raags have an extraordinary musical heritage dating back several centuries - a truly unique musical genre of fascinating melodic beauty and rhythmic intricacy – freely combining elaborate composed melodies with carefully rehearsed improvisation. Contents: Raags Latangi, Madhuvanti and Todi (each in 3 versions: really easy, easy, and quite easy/not so easy), plus Vachaspati, Patdeep, & Desh. Accompanying videos/mp3s at
