Notes & Sargam is a free resource of musical notes, created by a self-taught music lover…
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.
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.
