About Sapt Swaranjali

Sapt Swaranjali was conceptualized and started with a new thought on November 21st 2020. Sapt Swaranjali brings forward a very sacred Guru Shishya Parampara combined with new-age technology. This allows students to learn at their pace and convenience.

Sapt Swaranjali also strengthens the bond between Guru and Shishya which is not so prevalent because of the increase in the commercialization of music classes.

As every student has unique traits, their grasping power is also unique and different. So, one size fits all way of teaching will lead to sure shot failure. The courses of Sapt Swaranjali are thoughtfully designed and articulated to suit individuals’ needs. Our lesson pattern starts with the basic concepts of Indian classical music such as voice culture, voice modulation, understanding of swar (notes), tuning and playing tanpura and Harmonium. Once students complete the essentials and basics of music, we start training them on a detailed study of Taal, Concepts of Khyal, Thumri, Tarana, Tappa, Bhajan and other singing styles. We also coach them on creating Alankaar and many more important aspects of Vocal Music.

In Kathak, we focus on teaching and explaining the core concepts of footwork, hand posture, chakkar, hand movements, body balance, grace, navras and facial expression. Along with this, we also enable our students with a thorough understanding the bols of Toda, Tukda, Paran and Kavitta, etc. so students learn them easily.

Music learning starts at Sapt Swaranjali with our Sangeet Uday course and the duration of each course has been kept as one year. Though learning never stops but after getting trained for 10 years, students complete the curriculum with our Shreyaan course. During the course, we provide constructive feedback regularly and also give homework after each class. To make the learning more robust and effective, we conduct two examinations in a year – half-yearly and annual exams. The students are graded based on their complete year’s performance and examinations. On successful completion of the course, students are awarded a completion certificate.
