Students learning the bowed instruments start by learning the notes, how to handle the instruments and how to care for it.

While the Dilruba is played by moving the fingers along the frets, the Sarangi is played from the cuticles – hence the initial practice includes developing the technique of playing the instrument through note patterns, understanding the placement of the notes on the fingerboard and are then introduced to raag-based music.

Another use of the stringed instruments is as accompaniment for vocalists or percussion instruments (Nagma). As the student's confidence grows, they begin to play with each other across instruments to learn the art of Sangat (playing together) - this helps them develop teamwork and musical understanding.
