Music is one of life's greatest pleasures. I have been interested in music since early childhood. As long as I can remember, I have always been a classicist, embracing the classical music of both the Western and Indian Carnatic styles.
I started out as a student of Western classical piano and violin. I learned this art for many years before I was introduced to South Indian Carnatic music. I then decided to learn Carnatic vocal and violin. Since that time, Carnatic music has been my primary focus, though I definitely hope to return to my Western classical foundation in the near future.

Carnatic music is the classical music of South India, practised primarily in the state of Tamil Nadu. It is a traditional art form dating back many hundreds of years.
The basic melodic unit of Carnatic music is the
raga. There are 72 main ragas from which thousands of
other ragas are derived. I have put together a list of common
ragas as a convenient reference for beginners and aficionados
