Music, as we all know, involves vocal, instrumental and dance art forms as a whole. Music can be regarded as a medium for expressing thought and feeling through tone and time.The basic elements of music that combine to achieve this effect are melody, rhythm and harmony. Their combination gives rise to musical form.The term Indian music refers to the music of the sub-continent. Indian classical music, based on the raga form, refers to both North Indian music and South Indian music. Alternatively they are known as Hindustani and Carnatic music. Both traditions carry one single aim - to achieve highest innermost path of God through music. Rigved says 'kalav tat hari kirtanaat' music is the only tool to achieve God'
Regular classes for childern and adults are held at The Harrow Arts Centre on Saturday and Sunday. Please refer to Classes and Calender for more details about classes.
