Bansuri For Absolute Beginners

Prepare to Transform Your Musical Mind
The single greatest difficulty any bansuri player will ever face is getting through the initial stages of playing, in which:
- Getting sounds from the instrument is difficult;
- Written music looks like a foreign language; and
- Playing the bansuri seems a distant dream.
If that describes your situation, keep reading because Bansuri For Absolute Beginners is designed to get you through that stage and on to the fun part…playing beautiful bansuri!
