Students watch weekly video lessons, each lesson being 15 to 20 minutes in length. These lessons are provided via our WebSchool or in a resource learning pack. This gives students the flexibility to learn Naad Yoga in their own home, in their own time and at their own pace.
Students practise their weekly lesson using their chosen string instrument for 15 minutes a day, five days a week. Since all the learning is practical and hands-on, there are no written assignments or exams. As a new week begins, students watch the next weekly lesson and practise it throughout that week. This process of learning continues for 12 weeks or until students complete their current grade level. There are eight grades.
Each student is also assigned a qualified personal tutor who monitors progress on a bi-weekly basis and provides guidance as needed. Tutors also encourage students who begin to fall behind in their individual learning and practice.
After completing the assigned 12 weeks of video tutorials, the student is assessed via Skype.
There may also be an opportunity to visit a local educational centre where teachers from Raj Academy Conservatoire organise a hands-on workshop and conduct assessments in person.
These workshops are designed to help students overcome learning challenges and refine their instrumental playing techniques. In addition, they provide an opportunity to seek inspiration from other students also learning Naad Yoga in the area.
