Watch this clip of the ALAP section (first section) of an Indian Raga performance.

Answer the questions in the listening box on your worksheet;
What is different about the music compared to music you know?
What is similar?

During the unit you will examine how music is performed in a non Western culture through identifying, exploring and composing music in an Indian style with understanding of its conventions and context.

You will listen to examples of Indian classical music (Raga) and explore the common Indian musical devices (including the rag and tal).

The unit will broaden your knowledge of music from another culture and develop your composing skills while improving your understanding of scales, improvisation and musical notation.
About the unit...

Add a drone (any 2 notes from the raga scale - C & G work well with this Rag)

The first section of an indian composition is the ALAP, where the notes of the RAGA are realised SLOWLY.

In pairs, explore the notes of the RAGA SCALE and improvise a melody around the notes of the scale.
Start on the C and play the notes in an ascending and descending manner to begin with.
