~ You will be learning from Indrani Mukherjee

I want to give you a quick background on her - Indrani Mukherjee is a vocalist from Kolkata, who performs khayal in the Kirana-Rampur style and thumri in Purab Ang – this flourished in the eastern regions of North India and is characterised by grace, tenderness and delicate tonal embellishments.

Indrani has a fantastic artistic repertoire; Her training brings a unique focus to the literature behind all bandishes (compositions). In her renditions, she has developed an aesthetic blend of lyrics, tala and laya (tempo) which express the emotions of a raga in it's totality. Mukherjee has performed at the Darbar festival and has been working with us for several years.

She initially started learning from her mother, aunt and then trained with her maternal grandfather Sanjib Banerjee. Later she went to study under Pandit Arun Bhaduri, Vidushi Purnima Choudhary, Pandit Ramashreya Jha and Vidushi Manju Sundaram.

Indrani was a scholar of the prestigious ITC Sangeet Research Academy. She has been teaching students of all levels for many years. For the last 10 years she has taken to online teaching, reaching out to beginners and advanced students alike across geographical boundaries.

She is passionate about teaching and giving everyone access to her knowledge.  Indrani believes that online teaching is an excellent medium which gives even wider access to music lovers from all over the world.

You will not need a 'real' tanpura.  For learners, the best way to get in tune is to use a tanpura app. There are lots of free apps available for Android and Apple devices. Connecting the phone to a speaker is also super useful and recommended during practice.  This will also mean that you do not have any 'tuning' issues.

All of the classes will be taking place at the same time every week for the 8 week course. The time is 3pm UK time. Please work out the time for your own country of residence.
