Welcome To Notes & Sargam

This is an informal yet comprehensive resource of musical notes of Indian, Indian Film Music and Hollywood songs and tunes.

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.

This website will surely make you happy as here you will find Sargams (some call it notations, swaralipi, notes, etc.) of various Regional, Indian, Western 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 Sargams (Indian notations) 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.

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 of Hindi Songs on haromium”, or “Hindi song notations for harmonium”, or, “Harmonium notes for Hindi songs”, then you might have come to the right place.

Tips For Beginners

Those who are learning Bansuri must watch this video 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.

How I learned to play harmonica at the age of 49

Samir Kapoor Since childhood I wanted to play harmonica but, could not find any guru. Time passed by and I got married. My kids got in to college then I had time but again no guru. Actually I was shy of learning at the age nearing 50. My hesitation went on till 2017. Then one Sunday, in the evening I saw my boss going outside. He was in 60s. I asked him where he was going he told me that he was going to a guru for learning harmonium. That was the time I got confidence that when he can learn at 60 then why not

Out Of My Experience Of Self-Learning

How do I find out my Flute’s scale?

How to find out the scale of Flute? It is a very common dilemma of many who are new to Flutes. Picking up a flute is easy, blowing it correctly to get the right sweet tone is a bit challenging, but then, playing your flute in sync with a particular scale is the most daunting task for those flutists who have not taken formal flute lessons from any Guru or Teacher. So, if you want

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 now which I love to hear in both the versions.  The basic tune of this song, in both the versions, remains same. When I produced

Frequenty Asked Questions on Bansuri?

“How to play perfect shudha madyama. I failed to play it with half hole open.” Shuddh Ma is always a tricky note to play on flute. However, practice can make you perfect. The most common mistake one does is to become over conscious on opening (or closing) the top-first-hole on the flute. In the process what happens is that your fingers on the other holes on the flute may get slightly misplaced and thus let some

Prashant has assisted me with the notations of volumous Ghazals. 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.

Accidentally i came across this page, i just started learning flute around 3 months back i got good pace and learned the basis correctly but was finding it difficult to find notations for the songs. and here we go this page is my bible .
