Music is very calming and makes me happy everyday. Once I got to know the basics of Carnatic music it really calmed down my mind. Carnatic music involves a lot of mathematics and has been proven to increase the brain activity. It also has a very systematic way. Attending Hamsadhwani Concerts have a big impact on me. Listening to the live concerts made a whole lot of difference on the way I look at it. Initially my mind wasn’t set to the tune of carnatic music but later on it really grasped my mind and got to my attention. It got me more focused which eventually helped me get better grades at school. Also it helped me in dance with the beats and when to start and when to stop. It helped in many ways. For example, if I was at a concert and the vocalist was singing a song in the ragam of Rasikapriya, the next day if I was to learn a song in that same ragam,I would grasp it easily and have that sense of tune in my mind. All this happened because of my wonderful teacher, Indhu aunty, who constantly pushes us to do the best. I didn’t know I had this much to say/offer about carnatic music today.
