Great video lessons from Acharyanet
Two years ago, I was completely lost trying to teach Carnatic Music. And then, I discovered Acharyanet, and the Perfercting Carnatic Music (PCM) curriculum offered by Shri. Chitravina N Ravikiran. I am ever indebted to Acharyanet for proving these premium video lessons at non-premium prices, and not to mention, amazing customer support. As working Mom of two kids who is extremely passionate about music, Acharyanet has offered me the flexibiity to learn at my own pace. be it the PCM lessons from Shri. Chitravina N Ravikiran or Puranadara Dasa kritis taught by Shri. R.K.Srikanthan, they're all just a few mouse clicks away!! Acharyanet is different from other e-music classes because unlike other websites, this is not a pot-pourri of various learning styles (gharanas) but consistently offers lessons from one great source, and other complementary styles. Try Acharyanet, and you will definitely not regret it!!!

This website helps the learner to firm up the foundation and easily glide to the advanced lessons. A stupendous effort by the acharyanet team!!!
Looking forward to more lessons!
