music help improve your music skills?
Listening to Carnatic music improves your music
skills by helping you understand and identify many
different ragams. Each ragam has its own unique
pattern. You can only associate and identify these
patterns if you regularly listen to Carnatic music.
Some ragams are more complicated than others.
As an example, ragam Bangaala has a more
complicated avarohanam than Mohanam.
You can understand and enjoy these ragams only if you can identify them. That happens only if you listen to
more Carnatic music. Also, listening to music can inspire you, as it did to me. You can get inspired from other people’s way of alapanai, or you can get your own style for sangathees. This helps improve our music skills.
