Session type

Technical level


This session is aimed at aspiring singers and bathroom singers who want to improve their vocal technique overnight. I will demonstrate that it is not hard at all. Practicing these exercises will help you stay in tune, and improve your voice quality.


The session will start off right away with some demonstration of how to take the first step towards improving your voice. Will start off with simple exercises and move towards slightly harder ones. This would require the entire audience's involvement. I will draw inspiration from techniques that are unique to Hindusthani and Carnatic Classical music. Most of them are unheard of (like.. the Markata Thaanam.. where croaking like a frog actually refines your voice!!).


Your voices.

Speaker bio

I have been learning and practicing Carnatic and Hindusthani vocal music for the past 12 years. My teacher (Mrs. T. Padmhasini), who is a research scholar, devised her own vocal techniques based on extensive research and these were taught to us. As a result, these techniques can't be found anywhere else. Additionally, I was a vocalist in my school and college bands and blog about the gurukul system of education.

      Anand, While we would love to, given that this is a temporary setup, and with multiple parallel tracks, the reliability of internet would be suspect. I would say, you are going to have to be there, or risk missing it :)

    Quick clarification: Is it for Dummies, in which case, we should change the Technical level to Beginners?
