Beginners' Lessons - Geetams

Geetams are the simplest of Carnatic music forms, combining melody, taaLa, and lyrics. They were created by Purandara Daasa. Composed in the first or second speed and usually with common taaLams, there are two main types of geetam: samanya and lakshana (see glossary). Start by singing the swaras, then add the lyrics. Pay close attention to pronouncing the lyrics properly while you sing. When you are comfortable with these, you can add taaLam.
