Free Bansuri Tutorials By Dr. Kerry Kriger
Lesson Of The Month - July 2021
The lesson of the month comes straight from the Bansuri Bliss Academy archives. The lesson is usually only accessible by Bansuri Bliss Members. Be sure to download the written music. Check back here next month for a new lesson…or become a Bansuri Bliss Member to gain instant access to hundreds of bansuri lessons.
Bansuri Bliss Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger teaches a Yaman composition that he learned from Pandit Vijay Raghav Rao in August 2007. While the composition is intended for Ati Drut (very fast speed), it can be played at whatever speed you are comfortable with…and here we play it in a not very fast teental.
In this mini-course by Dr. Kerry Kriger, you will gain the knowledge to properly choose a bansuri and bansuri maker.
Buying anything can be frustrating if you don’t what to look for, what to ask, who to trust, how to assess quality, how much to pay, or where to look. Dr. Kriger created this guide to give you a framework for choosing your next bansuri.
I hope you have enjoyed the free learning materials on this page! I created them so that you and other aspiring bansuri players acquire the fundamentals of bansuri and north Indian classical music.
The courses and lessons on this page are just a small subset of what I have created over my 25+ years learning, playing and teaching bansuri. If you are truly dedicated to learning bansuri, I encourage you to become a Bansuri Bliss Member. As an official member, you will:
(1) Gain access to the entirety of Bansuri Bliss Academy, which contains hundreds of in-depth bansuri lessons in a variety of ragas;

(3) Gain access to the Bansuri Bliss Community on Discord, where you can meet other Bansuri Bliss Members, ask your bansuri questions and get detailed responses from myself and other accomplished bansuri players.
There is nothing similar to Bansuri Bliss Membership available anywhere online. I hope you will take advantage of this brilliant opportunity to develop your musical abilities!
