Introduction to Sitar 2
Rare opportunity to get hands-on experience of one of the world’s most thrilling musical instruments
A rare opportunity to get hands-on experience of one of the world’s most thrilling musical instruments, and develop your musical skills, understanding and appreciation of its music.
This course follows on from our Introduction to sitar 1 course and previous courses. It is not essential for people to have attended any of these courses since the first few lessons will review and revise the basics, and the tutor is well experienced in working with people with a range of experience.
Over the 10 week course, you will develop your skills on this amazing instrument and develop and deepen your understanding of North Indian classical music. Courtesy of theSitarProject, we will lend you a sitar for the duration of the course so you can practise at home. In return we will expect you to practise regularly and take care of your sitar – they are very special instruments.
People from all backgrounds are welcome, and no prior knowledge of sitar or Indian music and culture is required, though attendance on one of our sitar courses before and/or having had experience of playing any musical instrument or singing is an advantage.
The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has teamed up with Edinburgh’s theSitarProject to provide this course. theSitarProject has been supporting people in Scotland who want to learn the sitar since 2005. theSitarProject is co-directed by Laurence Howells and Alejandro Cooper.
Places for this course are strictly limited.
