Harmonium is a most popular instrument with people of all ages. This book gives you perfection in a very short time which is 30 days. These lessons are equally suitable for keyboard & harmonium players. You cannot learn to play desi Indian films songs without learning Thaat & ragass. English keyboard or piano lessons deal with chords & harmony but not melody. Western books mainly focus on chords and teach chords with both hands together therefore, western music is chords base.
However for playing Indian music chords are also required to fill harmony. Desi style teaching is a mixture of Western and Indian lessons. Indian music is melodic in nature. Whether you play keyboard or harmonium, it is necessary for you to learn thaat and ragas. Listening and learning by ear is the best method for quick learning and it also makes practicing more enjoyable as you play along with professionals with your very first lesson.
More About Desi Style Book
Indian classical music has one of
the most complex and complete musical systems
ever developed and also has its origins as a
meditation tool for attaining self realization.
Like Western classical music, it divides the
octave into 12 semitones of which the 7 basic
notes are Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa also called
moveable seven-note scale. A semitone, also
called a half step or a half tone, is the
smallest musical interval commonly used in
Western music, and it is considered the
most dissonant when sounded harmonically. When
seven notes Indian scale sounds harmonically it
sounds melodious and harmonious. The melodic
foundations of Indian music are called ragas.
One possible classification of ragas is into
parent scales, known as Thaats, under which most
ragas can be classified based on the notes they
use. Thaats may consist of up to seven scale
degrees, or swars. Indian musicians name these
pitches using a system called sargam. Sargam is
singing the swars instead of words of a
composition. Keyboard and harmonium in desi
style have explained basics of Indian classical
music in a very simple style with no complexity.
The author makes accessible to the general reader as well as to the practitioners of fundamental importance not only for the study of Indian and Pakistani achievements in the sphere of music-but also for the future development of one of the greatest contributions made by India to the musical culture of the world.
The chapter on the history of ragas, a large mass of materials have been imbedded and set forth in a historical sequence-revealing a fascinating story of the growth and development of Indian melodies. The peculiar theories governing the principles of Indian music are set forth with remarkable ingenuity from the unexplored sources. Apart from the data essential for the correct understanding of Indian music theories, the researches embodied in this volume have revealed surprising materials for the study of the mythology of Indian music and connecting links which intimately bind together the masterpieces. This indeed is a very revealing chapter in the history of Indian culture itself.
It was never realized earlier-as to what extent musical culture has offered valuable materials for the development of Indian ragas and to what extent the Indian performer has collaborated in publishing fundamental concepts, sometimes of extremely complex spiritual significance, for the apprehension of the general public in an easily accessible form. Pictorial diagrams of thaat and ragas will help to analyze the fundamental emotive character-the philosophy of each raga so that the practitioner should not use indiscriminately any pattern of Indian melody except to express its appropriate emotional concept. The most valuable data offered in this volume is the carefully collected material bearing on the the classification of the ragas set out in simple detail with color graphics of ten basic thaat. Moreover hundreds of raga based film songs are provided for the practice.

Keyboard or piano have the same keys so, these lessons are for both instruments. Many websites claim to have courses that you can purchase that will teach you how to "play piano by ear" or "learn the chord method", this book contains the same information as those courses and what's best is explained in a simple manner. Lots of people really would like to play the keyboard or piano, the most popular instrument. They don't know one note from another. They do know they love music and want to learn how to use chords and scales to play popular tunes of Indo-Pak. Many, many music lessons, charts, books, and explanations are available in websites and in bookstores. Which to choose? With books, you have to stop, turn the page, go back to another page, and try to keep the pages from flipping if the book doesn't lie flat or not in spiral binding.

This E.Book will provide you practical information about keyboard -playing, as well as detailed material on the most convenient charts and graphics is provided so you, too, can play your favorites music now. Be happy and don't worry.
You cannot find all information about keyboard chords, scales and fingerings in a single book. Western music books are being sold in parts. You are bound to purchase part two or three. The most important thing you can do is to make a commitment to learn the piano or keyboard. This means putting in the effort over the course of several weeks to learn and practice the theory taught on these pages. This is an attempt to explain things to a newbie who has just got a keyboard and wants to romance with it. In my opinion, both Western and Indian music forms are complex subjects and any simplification will indeed be a tough task. Frankly, my expertise in both forms is limited and through my constant exposure over the period of years I have learnt few basics of both. It is indeed a great pleasure to share the knowledge that I have acquired from different resources and tried to compile this comprehensive book.
Listening to music is a pleasure that most get from birth. This increases to a great extent when you understand the basics and appreciate. Music can be defined as collection of small pieces of regular sound played at predefined time interval. An ingenious collection of these notes played over a period of time results in a melody. Hence both western and Indian or for that matter any form of regular music has a set of basic notes from which they grow, something like alphabets. There is a new concept evolving called “computer music” where a musician explores beyond the basic notes that are defined in music. In cakewalk and Cubase SX3 it is possible to explore beyond basics.

From the beginning you should set yourself a goal. Many people learn keyboard or harmonium because of a desire to play old songs of sub-continent. It is important to have a correct approach to practice from beginning. You will benefit more from short practices (15-30 minutes per day) than one or two long sessions per week. Correct approach is only learning with the scales and chords concept. First learn scales, proper fingers for proper notes and then learn chords. After learning 12 major scales, its practice is also necessary. Try to play songs in a particular scale and in the end try to play songs with chords. Do, not try to play chord in the early stage of your learning. While practice, try to take help from book repeatedly. I am sure within 3-4 weeks you will be able to play your favorite tunes yourself without any help and chords will take some time. Do not forget to learn rhythm theory along with melody. Gradually you will become master if you take time learning notes and know how notes sounds.
