Syllabus Overview

Our comprehensive bansuri program is designed to provide students with the essential foundations for skillful flute-playing. We begin by focusing on correct posture and techniques for holding and blowing the flute. As students progress, they will explore the beautiful world of ragas, talas, and short compositions in the North Indian classical music tradition. More advanced topics like playing by ear and improvisation will be included as students advance in their flute-playing journey.

Techniques and Musicianship

Our program is designed to cater to both beginners and intermediate players, following the principles of North Indian classical music pedagogy. We offer comprehensive instruction in all essential techniques for the bansuri.

Students will learn blowing and breathing techniques for precise tonal production. They will engage in exercises that develop their technical proficiency and enable them to play intricate musical phrases. Students will also explore rhythmic cycles and melodic ornamentations to enhance their musical expression and creativity.

In addition to instrumental techniques, students will learn to read and notate music using Indian notation systems, learn music theory, and engage in composition activities, fostering their creative expression and originality. Ear training is a vital component of our program as students will develop focused listening skills, enabling them to play by ear and learn songs quickly.


The repertoire in our program includes a variety of bandishes, which are structured compositions based on ragas. We also explore folk and popular songs that demonstrate the versatility of North Indian classical music.
