Welcome to Week 2 of my Online Music Class. Our first class focussed on the 12 notes (Sur) in Music that are Universal. Isn’t it amazing that all the Music in the World is composed from these 12 notes?! No wonder they say Music is the only Universal language.

So Today, we are going to focus on Taal (beat). Sur & Taal together make up Music. Apart from getting used to a metronome App and singing the Saptak in different tempos, we will be learning 2 (of many) types of beat: 3/4 and 4/4.

I give you two examples of each and urge you to find two more as homework:

3/4 – Lag jaa gale, Tumko paya hai toh jaise

4/4 – Tum hi ho, Jag ghoomeya

Next week, we would be learning the basics of a Harmonium and what Scales are.
