Special Courses for Navaratri

This festival season, we present an ideal opportunity for students to learn the Navaratri-based masterpieces of the great composers, in authentic pAThAntarams. These include the Kamalamba Navavaranams, Abhayamba Vibhakti & Neelotpalamba Kritis of Muttuswami Dikshitar, Shyama Shastri's Navaratnamalika, Oottukkadu Venkata Kavi's Navavaranams and Maharaja Swati Tirunal's nine kritis that are rendered every year at the Navaratri Mandapam in Thiruvananthapuram. Students can sign up to learn individual kritis by request or a complete set.


  • All sessions will be one-to-one between the student and the expert faculty member. These may be face-to-face at a physical location in Chennai OR tele-teaching (via phone or Internet) from anywhere in the world.

  • For students/rasikas who are interested in the course sessions but are unable to attend, audio recordings will be made available at a nominal cost.

  • For overseas and non-Chennai Indian students who are keen to learn but feel unsure about the quality & feel of tele-teaching sessions, a free 30-minute trial will be made available with one of our faculty.
