Private Online Bansuri Lessons

Private Bansuri Lessons

​From March 2019 through May 2019, I will be ​leading three students ​through a 90-day immersive bansuri ​experience. Would you like to be one of these three students? If ​so, here is what you can expect:​

  • You will receive four private bansuri lessons with me (Dr. Kerry Kriger) each​ month.
  • We will focus on learning ragas and the fundamentals of Indian classical music (e.g. alap, taans, jhala, alankars and compositions in various taals).
  • ​You will be receiving the knowledge passed down to me from my guru Pandit Vijay Raghav Rao, combined with a touch of my own teaching style ​acquired from having taught numerous students from a wide variety of musical backgrounds over the past decade.
  • Lessons are one hour minimum...they may go longer if we are in the mood and our schedules allow. ​
  • You will receive an abundance of personalized feedback on your playing (likely hundreds of tips, corrections and improvements).
  • We can work on whatever raga or aspect of music you want.
  • You will become fully competent in reading and writing Indian classical music and will receive PDF's of compositions​ and exercises​ that will keep you busy ​and provide you with enjoyable music to play for months, years and possibly decades to come.
  • You will gain full access to the Bansuri Bliss Membership Site, which holds an abundance of Indian classical music tutorials not available anywhere else.
  • You will gain access to two Bansuri Bliss Group Lessons each month​ (also led by me) through which you will learn additional concepts and meet other bansuri players.
  • You will receive priority support for all your questions in between lessons, via email or Whatsapp (my direct number).
  • Required commitment is three months and one hour of practice per day.
  • Ninety days from now you will be a far better musician than you are today.
  • We will meet online. I will make sure I find time in my schedule and good internet; you will need to do the same.
  • You're too busy? We are all busy and we probably always will be. It's a matter of where your priorities are and how intelligently you make use of your waking hours. I will provide time management advice and encouragement as needed.
  • Once these three students make themselves known to me I will not be taking on any other students for private lessons ​until June 2019 at the earliest.
  • Tuition (for Bansuri Bliss Members) ​is $160/month; or a one-time payment of $420 that covers the entire three months.
  • Tuition (for non-members) is $180/month; or a one-time payment of $480 that covers the entire three months.
  • Payment will be securely processed via either credit card or Paypal.
  • Please contact me ASAP if you wish to begin.

​I hope to be ​teaching you bansuri soon!
