"Ninad Govind caters to your needs personally as he teaches on a one-to-one basis, takes into consideration your strengths and limitations, encourages and technically directs you to go beyond your vocal limits. It's been only a month since I've joined the class and I already notice a difference. In addition to that, the timings are flexible so it's very convenient. Also, he's a great musical inspiration. "

"So I was randomly singing along to karaokes and I realised something. I was singing 90% of them in their original keys. I was hardly having any trouble breathing and I was able to transition to and from my head voice without any major effort and Ninad. It is all because of you. In the little amount of time that you taught me I learnt so much and I have improved so much. Thank you."

"how can i sing sad song" in   Music/Vocal Music/Indian Vocal Music/Indian Classical Music/Carnatic Music

Get the feel of the song right. One good way is to first recite the lyrics in the correct meter and pronounce as if you're talking to someone. Do this 10-15 times, then it's just about singing as if you are conveying the same message. For instance, "tu hi re tere bina mai kaise jiyu" can be expressed in multiple ways. Get the feel right by really imagining the situation and making it clear in your head. Rest is just extrapolation

"Like western musical notations is there any Indian music notation?" in   Music/Vocal Music/Indian Vocal Music/Indian Classical Music

Yes there is. There are seven shuddha notes, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni, out of which four can be flat (komal) Re Ga Dha Ni and one can be sharp (Tivra) Ma depending on the composition. Say you start from C major scale, the notes that can be used are C D E F G A B. Here, C=Sa, D=Re, E=Ga, F=Ma, G=Pa, A=Dha, B=Ni and then the higher octaves. If you flatten the third, sixth and seventh notes, you get the minor C scale --> C D Eb F G Ab Bb. here C = Sa, D = Re, Eb = Komal Ga, F = Ma, G = Pa, Ab=Komal Dha, Bb=Komal Ni. Once you master any given technique, the rest is just extrapolation.

"Are these ragas used in classical music only?" in   Music/Vocal Music/Indian Vocal Music/Indian Classical Music

You can use raagas in light music too. Even in Western pop music, there are compositions that belong to the minor scale, major scale, harmonic minor scale, pentatonic minor, blues scales, etc which is nothing but an extrapolation of raagas learnt in Hindustani music. Basically, music comprises of 12 notes (22 shrutis) and all the music around the world is made using different permutations and combinations of the notes. In Bollywood music for instance, there are raagas such as Yaman that is used extensively in songs. Jab deep jale aana, Naam gum jaayega are exampes. Laal ishq for instance has a close resemblance to Maru Bihag raag. The only difference is, the rigid rules that a particular raag from Indian classical music sometimes puts, are not present in Light music. There is a freedom of tweaking the notes to convey a certain feeling. For instance, we can always use a shudh Ni in an otherwise Bhimpalasi dominated light music composition.

"How Gazhals became so much popular around the world?" in   Music/Vocal Music/Indian Vocal Music/Indian Classical Music

The amount of skill level of the ghazal singer makes it so popular. The singer is proficient in playing with the taal and use the nuances of Indian classical music efficiently. "Taal ko ghulaam bana kar gaana" requires a lot of riyaz and experience, this is why ghazal singers are considered one of the best. Add to that the clarity of urdu pronunciations and feeling expressed through words. Unmatchable.

"What all things should I consider before hiring a Hindustani music teacher?" in   Music/Vocal Music/Indian Vocal Music/Indian Classical Music

The experience that particular teacher has. Teaching methodology, singing level of the tutor and the ability to convey things well. Indian classical music should be taught in an interactive manner, as the amount of content is huge and grasping the same is a challenge if the tutor is not so good

Teaching Experience in detail in Western Classical Music classes

I focus a lot on the basics of Western music. Vocal production is the foremost thing covered. Various vocal warm ups are taught, and I focus on letting the student understand in depth what part of singing each individual exercise works on. I believe singers are vocal athletes, and the very act of singing, especially for professionals who have to tour pretty often, is nothing short of a marathon. It's very important that one sings with the right technique so as to not injure the instrument. A lot of small intricacies are covered and the entire learning journey is one of exploration - exploration of the inherent creative side within the student.
