Another exception is one who has absolutely no aptitude – even when provided the right environment they will not learn.

Like any relationship, this one takes time and effort. The success depends on how we define success, e. My gripe is with stage performance Having no other avocation, they can concentrate far more efficiently than adults and learn music very fast and efficiently, of course, basing upon the efficiency of the teacher.

However, bringing out the bare truth always looks like absolute discouragement only. Adding fuel to the fire, recently many universities have sangeerham this distance education only to earn money but not to maintain the standards by which the aspirants receive certificates and become the Degree-holders in music without the required expertise but resort to teaching successfully increasing the number of impotents and God alone knows the fate of such aspirants. But, in our music, Shruti is given the second place and most of our musicians sing in off-shruti but eagerly expect to receive great honours, awards and titles like Sangita Kalanidhi, Padmashri, Padma Bhooshan, Padma Vibhooshan etc.

On a side note as someone said not everyone learns music with the aim to perform. By all this, only to caution the common man of this anonymous lern I am compelled to bring this unhealthy negativity into my post for which I beg all your pardon.

Age to start learning carnatic music –

I started learning at So we cannot ever give a categorical answer to this question. So why discourage people who come forward with a true interest to learn music or an instrument?

Like the elders they do not have the tactics of asking or even pressurizing anybody to arrange their concert even if they are up to the mark. In the same manner, while the pure note has the true musical effect on the human mind and great value in any music, in our music, the pure note has the least value and, mostly, all our musicians prefer to shake all the notes including even the natural notes, Shadja and Panchama.


If not, it becomes more difficult and I am not able to put in the effort to work with you to bring you up to the success level I think is appropriate.

I started learning music only when I was in my late teens, so can’t claim to have learnt music from ‘a tender age!

He asked me a simple question. As kids are used to simply follow the instructions of the elders in doing things and do the needful but cannot have the understanding capacity, they should only be entrusted things to practice heavily and regularly but without defining the things. Do, please, give the author and source, including link if it was sahgeetham online.


Sageetham the other hand, I feel my ability to appreciate complexities and nuances of music has gone up over time. So when people start making statements like you can’t learn after a certain stage, I only feel they don’t know what they are talking about. However this topic is very dear to me. It is an emotional sngeetham since a lot of people who did not get a chance to learn music at a young age for various reasons believe or would like to believe that they can acquire reasonable competence and proficiency in carnatic music.

No one wants to claim he is a master. Giving some time and effort to the relationship is a great way to do that. This could only be understood by a critical and professional accompanying Violinist but not by any other person.

In the same manner, even in respect of teaching, all the music-teachers prefer to teach as many number of items as they can, sangeethham one-dozen Saralee-svaras, one-dozen Janta-svaras, half-a-dozen Daatu-svaras, half-a-dozen Hetchu-sthayi-svaras, half-a-dozen Taggu-sthayi-svaras, 35 Alankaras, half-a-dozen Svara-pallavis, half-a-dozen Svara-jatis, half-a-gross 72 Varnas and more than one full gross Kritis excluding other compositions, according to the established traditional quantitative method of teaching, which increases only the abilities of memorising the items but not the true ability to manage with different Gatis or Nadais.

You deserve to be given full attention and respect. Even the scope for the people to learn this art is very limited hundreds of people are resorting to learn this art as hobby. The elders can even donate or pay heavy amounts to the organizers or the media or the like even to pressurize them to arrange and publicize their concerts irrespective of their standards. In many of these music-institutions while the elders are very regular but learn very slowly and leisurely in a snails pace the youngsters are not that regular but certainly very fast than the elders.

In the same manner the kids could very easily be shaped in whatever manner the efficient teacher desires. The scope for people who learn this art is very sangeehtam. Many a time I have also requested the entire teaching community through many of my posts in this forum to sincerely sangeetjam this system for the learrn of the aspirants and the music field and also to upload their relevant videos to inspire others. In which way we feed our kids with hygienic and energetic food to keep them always healthy, in the same manner, even in respect of our music, we must strive hard to give unambiguous knowledge having relevancy with the practical music to our kids.

That is their kind of response. More over, among all, this is the only invisible art on the globe requiring very high level of concentration and regular practice which are abundantly available only in the kids.

The task of the violinist as accompanist is one that I am absolutely in awe of. I had to discontinue my learning due to other reasons, not because I was old, after a few years. I to agree that there are many complexities in both the systems of music.

Music is an ocean and each one cannot be expected to know everything. It is simply stunning. All this I did only for the benefit of our kids but not for any personal aggrandizement at ssngeetham. That makes all the difference. Young or old, both the guru and shishya should be equally committed and dedicated for teaching and learning.
