Karthika Arjun School teacher

Contact Karthika
I offer classes to anyone interested in learning traditional Carnatic (South Indian Style) music. Typically my focus is more on teaching children starting age 9 and higher, but other students are also welcome. I also believe that each individual must develop his / her talents on an individual basis. Some students are more receptive than others and every student takes a different developmental path in building their talent. The teacher must focus on building a musical foundation specific to the talent and weaknesses of the particular student. For instance, some students need more time and different types of exercises in achieving stability in rhythm or talam. Others take more time to align themselves to the Sruthi. The type of classes I offer are customized to each student's potential and the maturity of their talent. Most students tend to compromise on fundamentals in a hurry to move on to more advanced constructs or accumulate as many songs or geethams or krithis as they can.Classes are typically weekly. Also, I insist on students practicing at home to complement their music classes and progress. Classes can be scheduled in a flexible manner depending on schedules of the students and mine. Looking forward to have a good time teaching and learning music!
