Book Description
Back of the Book

The carnatic music reader series introduces a systematic study of carnatic music with the help of western staff notation.

The series has been designed with the beginner student in mind so that the he can learn to play the lessons on western instruments like guitar, piano keyboard, saxophone violin etc. with little effort.

This series on varnam starts with a quick course on western staff notation and proceeds with the presentation of Adi Tala and Ata Tala varanams of select composers in different ragas. All the exercise are graphically presented in western staff notation letter notation and also the conventional carnatic letter notation.


The carnatic music reader series presents the basic exercises Varnams and Krithis of carnatic music in the universal western staff notation system. The first volume of the series covered the basic exercises for beginners. The second and third and fourth volumes covered the Adi Thala and Adi Thala Varnams. This book the third in the series covers more Adi Thala Varnams. Few Pada Varnams are also covered in this volume.

The lessons will be continued in the same pattern for more Varnams and Krithis in the future volumes.

Western staff notation system is easy to learn more graphical and gives a complete picture of the music score. Those who are new to the staff notation system are requested to refer the initial volumes of the series where a brief and systematic introduction for the western staff notation system is provided.

I have to thank Shri. M. Easwaran for his continued encouragement in completing this task and Smt. Proprietor CBH publication in showing interest in this project and publishing this series.

I would like to thank to my family members and all friends who had been very appreciative of this Endeavour.
