Welcome To Notes & Sargam

Informal Resource

This is an informal yet comprehensive resource of Sargam notes of Indian, Indian Film Music and Hollywood songs and tunes, especially for beginners.

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 because, it is a comprehensive, easy to navigate, easy to understand, and above all absolutely free resource for beginners or music lovers like you who just want to play Sargam notes for Hindi English Bengali and regional songs on their instruments.

You will find here Sargam notes for Hindi, English, Bengali and regional songs and popular tunes...

So, this website will surely make you happy as here you will find various Sargam (some call it notations, swaralipi, notes, etc.) for Hindi English Bengali and regional songs, tunes, theme music, jingles etc., which have been enlisted categorically to make it easier for you to find what you want.  So, explore, play, learn and enjoy!

You will find here Sargam notes (Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa) of Hindi and non-Hindi songs and tunes which may help you to play them on your instruments.  Since, I play Bansuri (Bamboo Flute), I may be a little bias towards reproducing Sargam more suitable to play on Bansuri. As a result, you can learn how to produce play Sargam for Hindi English Bengali and regional songs on your instruments like, flute, harmonium, guitar, harmonica, violin, etc.

But, having said that, it doesn’t mean that these Sargam cannot be played on other instruments, like harmonium, keyboard, violin, sitar etc. They can be, indeed. If Bansuri produces “Sa Re Ga Ma”, so do other instruments, irrespective of their make or type.  So, I’m pretty sure that with little improvisation, these notations will hold equally good for playing on any type of instrument.

That means, if you are searching for, say, “Sargam notes of Hindi Songs on haromium”, or “Hindi song notations for harmonium”, or, “Harmonium notes for beginners”, or, “sa re ga ma pa piano notes for hindi songs”, then you might have come to the right place. Find 100s of Sargam notes for Hindi, Bengali and other regional songs.

Tips For Beginners

Beginners, like, those who have started learning Bansuri must watch these videos where self-taught musicians share their experiences of learning music all by themselves.

Real Stories Of Self-learning

Music is best learnt from a Teacher.  However, those who are yet to find a Guru, may get inspired from these stories of self-learning.


  • In a layman’s language to define, a Thaat is like a category under which there could be number of Raags.
  • A Thaat is a sequential set of seven out of 12 notes.
  • A Thaat will always have only seven different notes – either in their shuddh (natural) form or in their vikrit (moulded) form.
  • In Indian classical music, there are 32 Thaats, but following 10 Thaats are more prevalent.
  • Vikrit Swars are shown below in Red colour.
  • Notes written in Capitals are ‘Shuddh Swars’ and those written in Smalls are ‘Komal Swars’. # sign is for Tivr Madhyam.
  • Watch this video on how to memorize these 10 Thaats easily, which is slowly getting very popular.



    1. Equal number of Swars (notes) in both Aroh and Avroh
    2. Avroh should end on the Swar with which Aroh began
    3. The pattern must be logical, like, the gaps between notes should be alike in each set.

Out Of My Experience Of Self-Learning

Do not stop experimenting – A case study

WHILE PRODUCING SARGAM/NOTATIONS DO NOT STOP EXPERIMENTING There are two versions of a song called “Har kisiko nahi milta, yaha pyar zindagi me“.  One from a movie called “Jaabaaz” (1980) and other from a movie called “Boss” (2013).  This is one of my favourite songs, and the only song till

Prashant has assisted me with the notations of volumous Ghazals of my Badi Ammi, Farida Khannum ji. The service provided by Prashant is very apt, smooth, straight-forward and genuine. There are no hidden charges lurking and there is full transparency all the way. Prashant's notations are always correct and if there is any scope of a mistake then he corrects it. This quality of Prashant's is commendable. It was a wonderful experience with Prashant with the notations.
