If all the music-teachers, without singing themselves, initiate their students to learn music in this novel method of learning the aspirants will certainly become benefited by saving their invaluable time, energy and money. But, the efficient teachers who can manage both the Chaturashra and Trisra-gatis efficiently and who give high preference to the kids than the money can only follow this and help the aspirants and their respective parents which, in fact, becomes a million dollar question.

In continuation to the post No.573, the videos of Saveri Varna both in Chaturashra and Trisra-gatis sung by Chi. Chennu Akhileshwar, who had worked on his own and learnt them without my help at all, are now uploaded and the respective urls are funished hereunder for the benefit of the interested aspirants. amsharma

On 1st July, 2018, many of my direct and indirect disciples, music lovers and well-wishers have celebrated my Shatabhishekam at Hyderabad and very importantly nearly more than 160 students learning music in these AMS Easy Methods at different places have very efficiently demonstrated different levels of their music under the able guidance of their committed teachers. The video link is furnished here and the interested can enjoy it. https://youtu.be/nUbXhE-6Y40. The write-up given by the dynamic organizer, Shri. J.S.Eshwaraprasad himself in this connection is furnished herunder. amsharma

SAMPRADAYA TRUST, HYDERABAD.

Shata Gala Swara Laya Malika, a special Karnataka music presentatioin was conducted at Hyderabad on 1st July, 2018 on the occasion of Shatabhishekam of Violin Vidwan Shri Akella Mallikarjuna Sharma. Stalwarts of Karnataka music – viz. Sarvashri Annavarapu Ramaswamy, Komanduri Sheshadri, AIR Station Director V. Udayashankar, D. Raghavachary (of Hyderabad Bros), Ayyagari Shyamasundar, Hyderabad Sisters, Lalitha & Haripriya and Professors from Telutu University as well as organisers of Music Sabhas in twin cities of Hyderabad & Secunderabad attended.

The opening slot in the programme was Sapta-tala Jati-alankaras presented @ 4-3-8-6-units (Chaturashra & Trisra-gatis) by 50 kids.

The next was Sapta-tala Alankaras @ 1-2-3-4-6-8-units per beat - each Tala one round of Jati, next round Swaras – using Ragas Kharaharapriya, Chakravakam, Shubhapantuvarali, Dhenuka, Sihmendramadhyama, Rishabhapriya and Kamavardhani by 60 kids.

Following this was 100 voices vociferously putting a great show of Jati, Swara & Sahitya precisely interwoven into Trisra, Khanda & Mishra breaks in Chaturashra-gati Adi-tala - viz., starting with Nagumomugalavaani in Madhyamavati continued with….

(a) Shankarabharana swara with ‘Shakti sahita ganapatini’ nottu-swara (with Trisra breaks).

(b) Nadanamakriya swara with Annamacharya Keertana ‘Vacchenu Alamelumanga’ (with Khanda breaks),

(c) Shriranjani swara with Lakshana-geeta “Rerejayajaya’ (with Mishra breaks).

---finally culminating into Madhyamavati - Nagumomugalavaani.

Final lap of the show was Raga, Keertana & Kalpanaswara section –

(i) Saumitri Bhagyame Bhagyamu - Kharaharapriya,

(ii) Sharavanabhavaananda - Pantuvarali,

(iii) Shriguruguha - Shuddhasaveri,

(iv) Gopala ravela karunimcha vadela - Mohana (RTP).

--- all four items capably delivered by 30 students with all the ingredients viz., Ragamalika kalpanaswaras, Grahabheda and suitable musical mathematics all very dear to Guru Akella.

Music direction was by Smt. Chidrupa Lakshmi Eshwaraprasad and Chi.J.S.Shreeram (mother & son) both disciples of Shri Akella.

At the concluding felicitation function Shri Annavarapu Ramaswamy, Shri Komanduri Sheshadri and Shri V.Udayashankar were eloquent about Shri Akella’s relentless and dedicated service to further the cause of reaching and teaching young aspirants at a faster pace, with arithmetic and qualitative brilliance.

Shri J.S.Eshwaraprasad, Managing Trustee of Sampradaya presented the Sanmaanapatram and the programme was ably and capably compered by Shri M. Dakshinamurthy, AIR, Hyderabad.

Reacting to the whole evening programme Guru Shri Akella Mallikarjuna Sharma said he was very highly pleased with the efforts put in by Shri Eshwaraprasad and family in continuoualy striving to impart on the lines of AMS Easy Methods promulgated by himself.

@ Sri MS Akella

Dear Sir,

Felt an extreme pleasure while watching the little ones demonstrating their laya ability through jatis, swara kalpanas. Children/students were able to shift from one nada to another nada effortlessly. Highly commendable training given by Sri Sriram and Smt. Chidrupa Lakshmi Eshwaraprasad. It clearly proves the authenticity of your teaching and learning methodology. My heartiest congratulations to the entire team who put up this successful show case. May many carnatic aspirants make use of these "AMS easy methods of learning" which are unconditionally available on youtube.

Thank you sir for sharing.

Thank you for your kind appreciation.

I have been blessed by the Almighty with the topics, Talaprastara and Easy Methods in learning our music.

I may not be able to help all the people on the globe but am able to serve a small fraction of the society.. For this I feel extremely happy and satisfied and I ever remain grateful to the Almighty. amsharma

In continuation to the 576th post Chi Akhil, after finishing the Bhairavi-Ata-Varna and Svarajati also, took a long gap due to the ill-health of his father and some domestic problems, again resumed his regular practice and now learnt on his own and with my barest minimum guidance and efficiently sang the three-phased Kalpanasvaras of both the mathematical and creative varieties in each of 1. Trisra-rupaka and 2. Trisra-triputa-talas even without learning even a single Kriti. The respective links of youtube are furnished hereunder for the benefit of the interested aspirants. amsharma

In continuation to the previous post No. 583, I hereunder furnish the youtube link in which Chi Akhil very efficiently sang the mathematical and creative Kalpanasvaras-1 in Adi (medium-tempo) even without learning any Kriti and without any help from me.

Having become aware of the criminal loss already incurred since a very long time by our Karnataka-music community made by the egoistic and highly selfish legends of our music under the guise of music-teachers, I, only by the grace of Shirdi Saibaba, almost 10 years back, brought out a very logical method in learning our music by which, with the minimum dependence upon the teacher, the aspirant woks independenctly utilizing his/her own instintictive abilities and learns all the needed basic grammar hardly within only one year mostly depending upon the key-board, metronome, written material, audio and video files. In this process while the aspirant’s role is more than 95% (90% in respect of Instrumental-music) the teacher’s role is minimized to less than 5% (10% in respect of instrumental-music). Many of the relevant details of this method along with the respective urls of videos of the aspirants are also furnished in many of the posts of this thread. By going through this material one can very easily understand in which way all our kids have very plannedly been deceived by them incurring heavy loss of time, energy and money all along these years. amsharma

I, very sincerely, feel it as my duty as a responsible music-teacher to bring out to the notice of all others the illogicality crept into the very primary exercises of our music by our highly selfish, egoistic, conservative and ignorant legends of our music who themselves think as great teachers.

Previously also, only by the grace of the Almighty, I could remove many illogicalities imposed upon the methods of learning our music by these so called legends who are not teachers at all but cheaters and made it very efficiently 'time-bound and result oriented' unlike in the past. In making the entire process of learning our music very strictly logical, fast and easy I have brought out five books with symbolised, detailed and general-notations and symbolised easy Muktayis of Mullapudi School of Mridangam along with more than 1000 videos uploaded to YouTube. To help the poor aspirants all these books are supplied along with pre-recorded CDs or DVDs at cheaper rates.

While the learning of a number of compositions face to face direct from the so called Guru is the only criteria in the age-old system of teaching (cheating) music but not any grammer of music, in the modern logical system of learning music, the aspirant is initiated to work hard on his/her own independently for more than 95% with the criteria of becoming able to deal with the grammer like singing Swarakalpana and Ragalapana even before learning Kritis within a span of only one year.

Along with some efficient and honest music-teachers and lovers we, since last more than 10 years, have been working relentlessly on these lines and getting abundant results in our Telugu States. In this context many articles are also brought out in Telugu through
'https://www.facebook.com/akella.m.sharma' enlightening our Telugu people and many are following this and getting amazing results too.

Accordingly the person who sings/plays for less than 5% in the class is a true music-teacher and the person who exceeds this duration is, no doubt, a cheater I feel.

Now, very recently, I could locate another basic illogicality in our Alankaras where while short syllables only are used in five Alankaras longer syllables are also used in the remaining two Alankaras of Jhampa and Ata-talas. Now, these two Alankaras have been made more logical by replacing them with short syllables only and modifying them into 'srgmgrs-rgm' and 'srgrs-rgmgr-srgm' respectively which helps a lot to the students in their regular strenuous practice. amsharma

In continuation to the context of my previous post I would like to share the following information also.

Just like in learning cycling or cooking or music who ever mostly makes the aspirant himself or herself do and learn things on his or her own is the true teacher or otherwise a cheater.

Anywhere, at any place and at any time the selfish, egoistic, ignorant and such persons having very bad qualities, in general, prefer to dominate the society and rule as they like. Most unfortunately, the same thing happened to our Karnataka music long long ago by such persons and many are not aware that much harm has already been done in this manner.

Most unfortunately, irrespective of the rank or cadre or level, since a very long time, no music-teacher had ever tried to look into the various problems of the aspirants, the torch-bearers of our culture and to solve them in their favour. In general, all the music-teachers sing themselves and make the aspirants also sing along with them just like the teacher who mostly drives the cycle himself in cycling or cooks the items himself in cooking. None of the present teachers knows how, without singing himself/herself, to initiate the aspirant sing himself/herself or even tries to know.

Around 1900 Subbarama Dikshitar, having seen the plight of the perennially dependent music-students, brought out his monumental work, Sageeta Sampradaya Pradarshani in Telugu along with hundreds of compositions written in symbolised notations for the first time in the history to truly and truthfully help them a lot. But, these selfish gentle-men overtly praised him profusely but covertly, without using or developing or propagating these symbols, imposed a rule upon the students that they must learn music face to face only from their teacher without writing anything which helped only to horribly elongate the process of learning music for many years keeping the aspirants perennially dependents upon the so called Gurus, the parasitical performers but not teachers at all. In all these performing arts like cycling or cooking or dancing or music while the aspirant's role is more than 95% the true teacher's role should not exceed more than 5 %. As all these legends are parasitical performers only but not teachers at all they have always been used to sing themselves much making the aspirant also sing along with him/her which helped not only to illogically elongate the process of learning for many years without utilizing their instinctive abilities at all but the imitative ability only but also to absolutely waste their invaluable time, energy and money. All the more the music grammar of singing creative music under the guise of so called 'Manodharma Sangita' has never been taught to the aspirant on the pretext that it should neither be taught nor learnt which, in fact, is a deliberate lie just to cheat.

My extensive research in this respect obviously revealed that, in the above suicidal process, the imitative ability only is utilised but not any of the aspirant's instinctive abilities unfortunately. Thus, when I, without singing even for a single minute, properly initiated my students to work hard on their own according to a very strict logical plan they are able to sing even creative Swarakalpana for the compositions in all the six popular Talas along with brief Ragalapana also hardly within the span of only one year that too even before learning Kritis.

While less than 20% of the aspirants only may become professional performers in the age old, elongated and grammar-less method of learning a number of compositions far more than 80% certainly become both professional performers and teachers as well by independent learning of hardly a couple of years that too along with the very crucial grammar.

This system of learning music along with the most important grammar (not merely a number of compositions) abundantly helps both the aspirants and their parents as well by saving their invaluable time, energy and money. Having been blessed with this method of learning music by the grace of the Almighty in 2001 since then I have started cultivating this in our musically-backward area, Telugu States along with some like minded persons.

In 2015 my disciple, Dr. M.Prasanna, music-teacher, had very strictly been advised not to sing at all for some time by her family Doctor. At this time she had learnt this method of learning music and she brought out more than 50 kids from the Scheduled castes and tribes who have never been exposed to this invisible fine-art (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... 6uikF91ekv).

In 2017 three students, Jyothirmayi, Meghana and Akhil are trained in the method and their details are furnished below:
AMS-Jyothirmayi, Sai Meghana & Akhil: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... Bwfx1O_rLu
http://www.rasikas.org/forums/viewtopic ... 58#p319958

Very recently another lady student, Chi. Sow. Krishnaveni (+919392409317) of 25 yrs. of age from Warangal, who has been learning music since 2007 and had already passed Diploma in Music and M.A. from Padmavathi University but been able to sing very brief Ragalapana and Swarakalpana in three Ragas only, came to me on 20190429 and showed interest in singing Swarakalpana and Ragalapana. When I have given her the videos of some intricate rhythmical exercises she could do them, then and there, very efficiently. Later, when I have given her my book, AMS Easy Methods along with the CD on 20190502 she was able to very efficiently cover all the different levels of Swarakalpana in all the popular six Talas within 20190513 (12 days only) of my book and proved that, if properly initiated by the true-teacher, many students can do so very quickly and efficiently. (all these audio-files are posted in WhatsApp)

I shall be very happy if any of the efficient and reputed music-teachers from Chennai also do in this manner and furnish the audios or videos of their students here, chronologically, in this forum. amsharma

Post by msakella » 22 May 2019, 12:20

In continuation to the context of my previous post I would like to share the following also.

As mentioned in my previous post Chi. Sow. Krishnaveni (30 yrs.) from Warangal could very efficiently sing both creative and mathematical Swarakalpana to the compositions in all the six popular Talas in the phased manner furnished and supplied by me in my book 'AMS Easy Methods' hardly within 12 days.

Later, again furnishing the relevant written material, when I have continued to initiate her by phone in singing the creative and mathematical Swarakalpana to one-unit gap in the 2nd degree from Samam to the Charanam 'tAmarasadaLanEtri' of the Kriti 'ammarAvamma-kaLYani-trisrarUpaka' she very efficiently fulfilled this task also on 20190518 which is very difficult to manage even to many of the professional performers (respective audio files are uploaded to the respective WhatsApp group).

Later, again furnishing the relevant written material, when I have continued to initiate her by phone in singing the creative and mathematical Swarakalpana to three-unit gap in the 2nd degree from Samam to the Anupallavi 'savanarakshaka' of the Kriti 'evarura-mOhana-cApu' she very efficiently fulfilled this task also on 20190522 which is very difficult to manage even to many of the professional performers (respective audio files are uploaded to the respective WhatsApp group).

Thus, she could very efficiently fulfilled the singing of both creative and mathematical Swarakalpana of all the above all hardly within three-weeks of time to which any reputed music-cheater from Chennai would have very gladly and lavishly wasted the invaluable time of a couple of years at the least, more physical energy in that period and enormous money of this dependent student as he likes. By the grace of the Almighty she was saved in this manner.

Even in 2010, when I was awarded the TTK award, I have demonstrated this logical system of learning our music in the Chennai Music Academy and I have been propagating, implementing, getting very encouraging results and furnishing them in these columns. In spite of all these things no music-cheater from Chennai acts honestly in sincerely helping the music students by possibly quickening the process of learning music. That is the greatness of our very highly selfish music-cheaters. amsharma

In continuation to the context of my previous post I would like to share the following also.

Later, even without my barest minimum help she sang the following efficiently and effortlessly hardly within a couple of months time of which the respective links are furnished hereunder.

This obviously reveals that we have abundant talent everywhere if the efficient, honest and truthful teacher (not cheater) taps it out in time.

Hereafter mostly I prefer to work at my place only in saving the invaluable time, energy and money of our Telugu kids than wasting my conserved energies in activating other worthless music-cheaters. amsharma
