In this weekend intensive workshop students will broaden their 
understanding and awareness of the elements of North Indian classical 
music, raga & tala, by participating in five 2½-hour classes scheduled 
throughout the weekend to take advantage of the raga cycle – the 
relationship between raga and the time of day. Students will sing ragas 
associated with the different times of day, from morning until night. 
The class will be accompanied by tambura, the essential drone 
instrument, and tabla, a set of two small hand drums used in North 
Indian classical music.

For students who have already had some study with the instructor, or 
with instructor’s consent.
