The single greatest difficulty any bansuri player will ever face is getting through the initial stages, in which: - Getting sounds from the instrument is difficult; - Written music looks like a foreign language; and - Playing the bansuri seems a distant dream. This January we will be offering a course called Bansuri For Absolute Beginners to help get beginning bansuri players through that stage and on to the fun part...playing beautiful bansuri. The course starts January 7th, 2023. To keep class size small and ensure personal attention, there will be eight students maximum.

"Don't forget your gamaks." – Pandit Vijay Raghav Rao This is the first of a four part Shivaranjani lesson that Bansuri Bliss Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger @kerrykriger taught during this morning's Bansuri Bliss Members Beginners Lesson. Shivaranjani is a perfect raga for bansuri players who have gained control over the shuddh notes and want to begin exploring komal notes, in particular Komal Ga. No bansuri player has achieved their potential who cannot play gamaks smoothly. This lesson is aimed at ensuring that you don't forget your gamaks...and that you move closer to gamaks mastery.
