Yes, of course! In fact, the strengths of both western and Indian classical music can be leveraged to learn faster and to create a strong musical foundation. The world has numerous musical traditions, genres, styles etc, but ultimately there is a certain musical unity in diversity which can enrich a person as he keeps adding to his or her repertoire of music. It is a unique joy and adds unique value to our lives, Even the most popular bands in western music such as "Beatles", "Shakti" incorporated Indian music in some of their songs and compositions. Although I teach western music, the knowledge of Indian classical music, especially Carnatic rhythms has immensely helped me in getting a strong grasp of complex rhythms used in western music. Also, some of the arpeggios I play on the guitar remind me of certain Indian Ragas viz Hansadhwani, Marwa etc. So, go ahead! I'd strongly encourage you to learn both western and Indian classical music. All the Best! read less

Of course. There are many examples of that- many fusion artists and bands have precisely done that. The Raghu Dixit Project and Indian Ocean are popular examples.

Yes you can. But it will be better to learn the western music first and then go in for the Indian music. That way you will understand the Indian melodic patterns (ragas) easily and not get confused between a Raga and a Scale.
