A New Approach to Kirtan Education
THE OLD METHOD OF LEARNING
A traditional approach to learning Kirtan involves the sometimes lengthy process of finding a qualified teacher. Often a qualified teacher is simply not accessible in the local area.
When a teacher is available, students may travel long distances to seek knowledge, dedicating five to seven years to their training. In addition, many people have to make personal sacrifices in their academic education, family life or work to pursue their passion for Kirtan. This archaic method of learning is simply not feasible for many students.
A NEW APPROACH TO LEARNING
Gurmat Sangeet Outreach revolutionises Kirtan education by bringing knowledge, resources and qualified teachers directly to your home. Digital media and online communications are used to facilitate this learning process.
Everyone can now learn Kirtan with string instruments from highly qualified teachers, teachers who are accessible, believe in education and genuinely care about their students. Personal sacrifices or long-distance drives are no longer necessary to pursue your passion.
1. No Experience Required
The Gurmat Sangeet Outreach programme is aimed at anyone, whether aged seven or seventy, who seeks the blessings of Guru Granth Sahib through singing Gurbani. Previous experience in Kirtan or a background in music is not necessary to begin learning through Gurmat Sangeet Outreach.
Children, students, parents, grandparents, families and local communities are all encouraged to learn Kirtan and make it an essential part of life. Our vision is to help all individuals in the community nourish their physical, psychological and spiritual wellbeing with this sacred art.
2. Easy and Accessible Learning
You can now choose to learn Kirtan in your own time and at your own pace. Whether you are a high-school or university student, a working parent or a senior citizen, this flexibility allows you to develop the skills of performing this ancient music at your convenience.
Students’ progress is achieved through the individualised, one-on-one learning environment and resources provided by our teachers.
3. Qualified Teachers
Raj Academy teachers are highly qualified with unparalleled background in Gurmat Sangeet and Sikh Music. Raj Academy Conservatoire trains and employs experienced teachers who have dedicated their life's mission to Kirtan education.
Teachers have received academic accreditation in Gurmat Sangeet by British academia and/or private certification from Raj Academy Conservatoire.
4. Affordable for Everyone
We believe in education that is affordable for everyone. The course fee is present to cover the basic costs of the learning resources provided to all students.
