Sitar classes


Class Dates/Times

Level Day of Week Times Price
HINDUSTANI- SUN- Sitar - April - July 2024 Sunday 14:00 PM - 19:00 PM


Students start learning the Sitar with holding and plucking the instrument and then begin to familiarize themselves with the different notes and work on them within rhythmic patterns.

As the students grow more confident, they learn tunes (gaths) based in various raags (melodic scales) and start developing the art of improvisation within the melodic scales.

Famous grand masters of the Sitar include Ustad Vilayat Khan and Pandit Nikhil Banerjee. More contemporary exponents of the Sitar include Niladri Kumar, Anoushka Shankar, Purbayan Chatterjee, Anupama Bhagwat. In the UK we are lucky to have Ustad Dharambir Singh MBE, Roopa Panesar, Jasdeep Singh Degun and more.
