Before you begin...
This site is intended as a reference page for your needs. Need to quickly look up a raaga's notes? It's here. Forgot the words to that song? Look here. However, it's NOT a substitute for books or tapes. We wholeheartedly encourage you to buy books of your own. They are invaluable when it comes to learning Carnatic music, and there is simply nothing like having a bound book in your hands. Take a look at some of the amazing contributions of many writers to the world of Carnatic music. Our references page has some very useful books, which we have also used in creating this page. You will want some of these.
In addition, donate to Carnatic music causes all over. Musicians get paid very little, and most, unlike popular performers of other genres, live in tiny humble homes where a single room is for practice and teaching (also done at amazingly low rates). The organizations that bring out tapes and music performances are also often not well-off, and performances are usually not profit-making enterprises. Any donations you give will help improve the world of Carnatic music by making it more accessible for others and by encouraging young and old musicians to continue this invaluable art.
With that in mind, please peruse these pages as information-seekers and students of Carnatic music. We can all learn from the humility of the great musicians of the past.
