Vocal Classes


Vocal Class

Vocal classes give a general introduction to the classical music of North India through singing. Compositions are learned in the most common ragas and students also learn the basic Talas (rhythmic cycles). Aspects of theory and history are also taught and students become familiar with the major styles and forms of Indian music (dhrupad, khyal, thumri, tarana, etc.). This introductory class is presented in cooperation with the “Studio für Musik der Kulturen – SMK” (Studio for musics of the world’s cultures), a department of the Music Academy, which also presents concerts and workshops of various music traditions from around the world.


Vocal classes presently take place on Tuesday evenings from 19.00 to 20.30 and Thursday evenings from 18.30 to 20.00. To visit a class please send us an email or call the College at: 41 61 272 80 32

“Singing is the most important, because, while you play, you are singing through the instrument… actually you are singing inside.”Ustad Ali Akbar Khan
