Tamil is one of the oldest (Dates back to 300 BC.), finest and the longest-surviving classical languages in the world. Tamil is believed to have been bought to the earth by the god himself. The sweetness and the divinity of the language is a proof for the same. Tamil, thanks to the vast vocabulary and variety of syllables, has also produced some of the finest poets like Thiruvalluvar, Manikkavasagar, Nakeerar, Papanasam Sivan, Andal and so on, whose works have been appreciated and quoted by scholars all over world. Bmusician is proud to launch this ‘Tamizhisai’ course, which is the first of its kind, aims at teaching the students some of the gems of Tamil literature like the Thevaram, Thiruvasagam, Andal Thiruppavai and so on, tuned in beautiful Indian Carnatic Ragas.

The course provides a fun and exciting way to learn some of the greatest works of the Tamil literature.
Beginner Tamil Music [Tamizhisai]
Basics of Carnatic and Tamil Music
In this module, the students will be trained in the basics of Carnatic music that includes Varisaigal, Alankarams and Geethams. This module will not cover all the basic Carnatic concepts in depth but will take a quicker yet effective route. This module is important for this course because the Tamil songs that are later taught in the course are tuned in simple ragas (Scales) of Carnatic music. However, this module is not mandatory. If you are already familiar with the basics, you can directly start with module 2.
In this module, students will learn selected songs from Thevaram, Thiruvasagam, Thiruvembavai, Thiruppallandu, Thiruvisaippa, Thirumandiram, Thirumugappasuram and Periyapuranam.
In this module, students will learn atleast 6 - 8 songs from Thiruppugazh written by the great poet Arunagirinadhar.

"I quite recently started my carnatic Vocal and Guitar classes with Bmusician. I have had online classes before with other online teachers but what makes Bmusician different is the way in which classes are conducted. Teachers are are very dedicated and organized. The class room is one of most innovative way of video calling facilities with screen recording etc . The video and audio clarity is much better than skype or facetime ID. Happy to be part of this team and hope one day i will contribute in return ."
" I have been using Bmusician for the last month and a half and I am learning guitar under Shylu. I have a lot of positive feedback for you guys. In terms of the website, it is very user-friendly, and I love the ability to reschedule classes easily. The Guru Notes Timeline is also a brilliant touch, and it clearly summarizes my weak points to practice more, as well as shows me how much I have improved over the last month. The classes have worked perfectly online, and the fact that I don't need to plug my electric guitar around to work has been a great bonus. Apart from the website side, Guitar Shylu has been a great teacher - very patient and explains the concepts beautifully :)"
"My kid has worked over an hour on Korvai composition techniques every single day in the last week with so much passion, without me insisting her to do so. I never ever thought that she will be drawn so much into Konokkol. This would never have been possible without Bmusician and mainly her Guru. Prapancham Surendran. Huge Huge thanks to him and Bmusician. "
"I feel the bmusician online platform is Well intentioned, Well planned, Well designed for the learning needs of those aspiring to be musicians. I feel the development of this bmusician platform is a right decision, made for the right reason... surely thousands will benefit from it... - student and user of the bmusician platform"
"Excellent Guru, Has lot of patience and teaches very well. He understands the student very well and he keeps up pace of the class balanced without making the class boring or making the student tired. His fingering exercises are really good, he makes them very easy to understand. Very few have such talents and he is definitely one of them. Bmusician keeps the classes so organised with class recordings and High quality video and audio. Fortunate to have a Guru like him and part of Bmusician."
" I look forward to class day so much every week. Every classroom recording is a treasure!"
" I feel so lucky to have found this online carnatic music academy for my 9 year old son. He is learning Guitar under Mr. Abhishek Varadarajan. Abhishek is a really good, encouraging, friendly guru. Also, the platform is user friendly. The support staff are prompt and very responsible. Very Very great oppurtunity for people who are passionate about learning carnatic classical music and out of reach to proper resources."
