Diploma Course Summary
You watch weekly video lessons - each lesson is 15 to 20 minutes in length. These are provided on our WebSchool or in a resource learning pack. It gives you the flexibility to learn Naad Yoga in your own home, in your own time and at your own pace.
You practise your weekly lesson using your 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.
At the beginning of a new week you watch the next weekly lesson and practise it throughout that week. This pattern of learning continues for 12 weeks or until you complete your current grade. There are eight grades.
You are assigned a qualified personal tutor who monitors your progress and provides guidance as needed. This is usually via Skype, but may occasionally be in person when students are within a tutor’s local area. Your tutor will encourage you if you begin to fall behind in your individual practice and help you to get back on track.
When you complete the assigned 12 weeks of video tutorials for a grade, a Raj Academy tutor will conduct a learning assessment.
There may also be an opportunity to visit a local venue where Raj Academy teachers organise a hands-on workshop and conduct assessments in person.
These workshops are designed to inspire you, help you overcome learning challenges and refine your instrumental playing techniques. They also enable you to meet other students for mutual support on the adventure of learning Naad Yoga.
