ABOUT NOTES & SARGAM

This website and my FB page is dedicated to those who have desire, passion and interest for music but cannot afford formal training due to lack of time, money or preoccupation.  They can find notations in Indian format namely, SARGAM of many songs and tunes here along with Alankars, Tips and Tricks, and much more.

And, yes. I am not a trained musician.  I am a music lover.  Because, a musician knows A to Z of music, whereas I only know how to please myself by playing my flute the way I have taught myself. I have not got any formal training in music nor have been fortunate enough to learn Bansuri from a teacher.

Whatever I share with you through this website or my facebook page, is out of my own personal experience. I am a self-learned Flutist and I try to reproduce the Sargam (Indian notations) of the songs/tunes etc., by playing them on my flute. That’s why the SARGAM or notations that you get on this website or on my facebook page may differ from what a trained musician may offer. Hence, I would like to request all of you to use these notations as a reference and do not restrict yourself from doing improvisations.


LIST OF SARGAM/NOTATIONS

So, you are a music lover.  You play some instrument too.  But you are stuck.  You have looked around everywhere for notations of the music that you want to play on your instrument, but alas! little luck.  Those resources are either charging money or are incomplete.  But the good news is, you have landed up on Notes & Sargam – a comprehensive, easy to navigate, easy to understand, and above all absolutely free resource for music lovers like you who just want to play their favorite music on their instruments.

Disclaimer

Ever since my Facebook page started getting popular, I can see that the expectations are getting higher and higher!

What I thought was a humble beginning from my side seems to be turning out as a useful platform for music lovers like you. Thank you so much.

However, I would like to reiterate that I am not a trained musician and whatever I share with you through this website or my facebook page, is out of my own personal experience. I am a self-learned Flautist and I try to reproduce the Sargam (Indian notations) of the songs/tunes etc., by playing them on my flute (generally on ‘C’ scale).

That’s why the sargam or notations that you get on this website or my facebook page may slightly differ from what a trained musician may offer. Hence, I would like to request all of you to use these notations as a reference and do not restrict yourself from doing improvisations.

The Sargam / Notations available in this website are either created by me or contributed by my Facebook fans.  These might bear similarity with some contents available on other sites, but that is purely coincidental.  Visitors to this website are free to use the contents for their personal use only and are strictly warned against using these Sargams / notations for commercial purpose, which will be deemed as infringement of copyright.  

And yes, I will be happy to accept any mistake that might miss my and catch your attention.

Thank you and take care.
