Theory - Manodharma Sangeetam
Learning weighty compositions will give a deep insight into the Ragas and help the student build their creative faculty. The student understands the essence of any Raga through its special phrases (not only the scale), and its beauty by increasing his repertoire of Krtis, which in turn help his/her creative abilities.
Raga Alapana is the most important aspect of creative music and this hones the student into becoming an accomplished performer.
Niraval is a very important aspect of Manodharma Sangeetam or Creative Music. Niraval singing is the ultimate test of a student of music and determines his/her creative genius. Attaining perfection in Niraval will make the student fit to enter into the performing area of music.
Kalpana Svarams are also a very important aspect of Manodharma Sangeetam which hones students towards concert performances.
Manodharma Sangeetam is the touchstone of Carnatic Music and it is therefore the acid test for ever aspiring performer. The penultimate goal of every student of music is to perfect the art of Manodharma Sangeetam which is the core of all concert performances in the present day. The student gets a detailed explanation of the various aspects of Manodharma Sangeetam.
Raga Lakshanas give us intricate details of the Raga so that the student has a better understanding of them while presenting the compositions.
