Only by the grace of the Almighty today I could upload 120 Videos to ‘youtube.com/user/msakella’ under the playlist “AMS-Vocal exercises with Metronome by Shankara Aditya’ which are very highly useful to the aspirants learning Vocal. They are available @ 15 videos, as furnished hereunder, sung in each of the 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110 and 120 bpm (beats-per-minute) of the Metronome. amsharma

Under the main thread, General Discussions, under the sub-thread, Swaeroes of Adavimallela excelling in music with AMS EASY METHODS, in the post No.16, in the video under the link https://youtu.be/05JVPoP2g8k two under privileged kids, having been initiated by their efficient, honest and reliable music-teacher, Dr. Prasanna, amazingly sang intricate Jati-muktayis starting from 3 to 10-units, both in Chaturashra and Trisra-gatis. Only 3 months back they have started learning music and presently they are under the process of learning 5 Gitas and only one Swarapallavi to proceed further in learning 9 select Varnas but they are able to sing even these intricate mathematical exercises. I shall be very happy if any music-teacher on the globe does the same and post the respective link of the video of the aspirants in this column.

In the present system of teaching music while a number of items only are taught without any purpose by the teacher himself/herself singing or playing and asking the aspirant follow by singing or playing, in this novel system of learning music, the aspirant is initiated to learn any item with a specific purpose working on his/her own independently with the help of the keyboard, metronome and notated pdf files supplied by the teacher even on the first day of learning music. amsharma

Any evolution takes its own pace and, in the same manner, the present evolution in the methods of learning our music started in 2001 when I wrote Sangita Swararaga Sudha bringing out some easy methods in learning Swarakalpana and Ragalapana very quickly and efficiently and supplied along with an mp3 CD. From then onwards, the vigorous research on these methods has been continuing and, in this process, I have been learning many such easy methods very regularly. In turn, by implementing these easy methods many of the aspirants are learning music on their own very quickly and efficiently hardly within a couple of years only. In this process I had to properly modify and bring out my book, AMS Easy Methods-2007 along with a DVD in which several audio and video files are included.

In this process I had to re-organise the 57 videos pertaining to the Special-laya-exercises in a disciplined manner. This modified list is furnished hereunder. As these videos are already kept in ‘youtube.com/user/msakella’, while re-organising them I had to shorten their titles to abide by their rules. These names are also funished hereunder in the 2nd list for the benefit of the interested aspirants. amsharma

Honest and efficient music-teacher always strives hard to give more knowledge of music to the aspirant but not more items of music. In this manner Chi. Sow. P.T.Ranjani, one of my disciples from Pune, sincerely following this novel method, has efficiently initiated her students sing the first Natakuranji-Varna learnt @ 4-6-8 notes. The respective urls are furnished here for the benefit of the aspirants. amsharma

Hi All,
I am Rajani Krishna.
My pranamas to revered MS Akella Guruvu garu.It might sound like an exaggeration to most of you,but it is true that I always feel that my introduction in last year to guru garu happened in a strange and miraculous manner.
He has been my guiding source since last year in AMS methods.He taught the intricacies of music in a short span.It could not have happened with out his support.
I am applying and teaching the same methods to students in Pune.It is giving great results;students are enjoying learning on piano and getting it very fast.My own kid of 5.5 years old is singing varnam with great ease.All of my students are singing varnam in a short time.
I am posting Natakuranji varnam rendering of my students and kid

Namaskar. I have uploaded the three video files of my daughter Padmini Gopinath - 12 years old 7th grader, rendering creative kalpanaswaram in different talas through AMS Easy methods of learning and training. To note, she has learnt only upto varnas , however - AMSji with minimal guidance initiated her to try Kalpanaswarams in different thalams on her own at this early stage. AMSji's Easy methods and his system of innovative learning has provided very strong foundation for her to complete these creative kalpanaswara exercises without any difficulty. We are blessed to have Shri. AMSji as Guruji and Padmini is learning vocal/violin under his esteemed guidance. AMSji's tireless effort, in particular, his unique way of training, his motivation brings out the hidden talent of Padmini like kids.

Will upload some more videos in this series as and when Padmini completes the lessons

After much thought, I ventured into downloading the AMS easy methods of learning. I had also earlier purchased the books and the cassettes. I have prior music experience having learnt veena for many years and now continuing to learn vocal. My son, 9 years old is learning the methods as shown by Akella Garu in his videos. He is now able to render three varnams as 4-6-8 notes per beat. He is slowly starting to get interested in kalpana swarams and can put kalpana swarams for some krithis.

Along with him I am also learning and it is truly very empowering. When we practise with the metronome we are 100% confident that we are getting it right.

It is true that laya training as emphasized by Akella Garu is the important ingredient in developing confidence to render kalpana swarams. Akella Sir's method gives students the much needed confidence and then music practice becomes fun for children. My son now looks forward to music practice sessions.

nadasudha

No person is entitled to perform any physical surgery to any person unless he/she has the needed Master’s Degree in Surgery as it culminates into the death of the person which could well be recognized immediately. But, in our music, due to the defective age-old system of learning a number of items but not the needed grammar at all most of the aspirants are becoming musically handicapped for their lives and as such musical-handicap could not even be recognized at all no body is bothering about such deficiency of the system.

In my special case, having come across many failures in my teaching life, I could recognize most of all such deficiencies and, only from these failures, for the first time in the history, I could bring out an efficient system of learning our music in which the aspirant-kid works hard 99% independently in a systematic plan and learn things in a very short time on his/her own under the mere guidance of 1% of the teacher. In this novel and qualitative system of learning, unbelievably, some talented kids can sing even creative Kalpanaswaras even before learning the crucial Varnas. That is the quickness and efficiency of this sytem though it may differ from person to person depending upon the individual and instinctive abilities of the kids.

To perform the forthcoming journey in music the kid must properly be equipped with the knowledge of notation-singing or writing, the intricacies of rhythm and note. That is why the kid must, at the first instance, be initiated by an efficient teacher to learn the different rhythmical exercises, notation-singing and writing with the help of the key-board and singing not only the Alankaras both in Chaturashra and Trisra-gatis but also each and every Varna in Chaturashra, Divya-sankeerna and Mishra-sankeerna-gatis i.e., @ 4-6-8 notes per beat. Then only the kid proceeds further and further in his/her journey independently and learn things on his/her own. amsharma

I am Dr.N.Krishna veni , A-grade Veena-artist , working in B.V.K.Jr.College , Visakhapatnam as Music Lecturer . I have found the AMS Easy Methods very useful to the aspirants in initiating them to work hard independently on their own in getting the crucial knowledge of singing and writing the notation of not only the compositions but Swarakalpana – exercises and Ragalapana – exercises also which are furnished in ‘ Sangita Svararaga Sudha ‘. Amazingly these methods are helping them a lot in singing creative Swarakalpana and Ragalapana too very quickly and efficiently.
Here we are holding even State –level - music – competitions also in a novel method to encourage the aspirants learn the Alankaras , all the Varnas and Swarakalpana with the rhythmical intricacies to sing them in these competitions.
I hereunder furnish the respective URLs of some of our students who are able to learn them very quickly and sing them very efficiently for the benefit of the other aspirants.
01) K.Mugdha studying Intermediate 1st year HMC ( History,Music,Civics ) group in B.V.K.Jr.College, Visakhapatnam. Being involved in learning music she has completed just 9 months only. Taking guidance and practicing along with the respective videos 'AMS Easy Methods' she is now capable of singing creative swarakalpana.

Dear Rasikas

I agree to what Smt Krishnaveni garu has told. We found the AMS Easy Methods very useful to the aspirants in initiating them to work hard independently on their own. We have started music from basic level to my elder daughter Chi Padmaja under the guidance of Sri MS Akella garu exactly 2 years back, without her having any music back ground. By looking at the progress of her, we have started it to my younger daughter also in these methods about 7-8 months back.

She leanrs under a teacher by name Sandhya garu , who in turn is learning easy methods from Sri Akella garu. Under the guidance of Sandhya garu and with the support of Sri Akella garu, my second daughter Keertana, who is 11 years old, also has started to progress further. She was able to complete 3 varnas with 4 6 8 speed and was able to complete in short span of time. There are couple of varnas where children are themselves enabled to write the detailed notations by listening to the audio files of Guruvugaru.

Since we do not have any musical back ground at home, I am very happy to see the progress of children.

In this system, We have personally seen and it is amazing that small children writing anuswarams and able to render the same gamakas, without the detailed notation. Once they sing one note per beat, their job became easy to sing 4 6 8.

Please find the attached videos of Chi Keertana who has sung 3 varnas aa karam in 4 6 8 speeds

https://youtu.be/40ffnw1KpBQ - Natakuranji Aa karam 4 6 8
https://youtu.be/ag12oVjh_VE - Kambhoji Aa karam 4 6 8
https://youtu.be/xBmj2Idy4Ds - Darbar Aa karam 4 6 8

There are about 10 children who are learning under guidance of Sandhya garu using AMS easy methods and we are seeing them learning all the laya exercises quickly. They are able to render Geetas in 1 2 3 4 speeds also.

In this method, Chi Keertana also is able to render creative swarakalpana after finishing first varnam, which is surprising.

These methods are helping out many aspirants to increase their speed in learning, there by achieving perfection in short span of time

We want to thank Sri MS Akella garu for his guidance and support to all these small children

Thanks and Regards
Saraswathi

Once, when I met Shri MSG and asked ‘I have heard that you are used to regularly practice for more than 10 to 12 hours a day’. He replied “I have been used to very regularly practice daily for 8 hours only but not more than that. But it is a knowledgeable or logical-practice, I can certainly tell.’

As I have tasted some of his very-rare-violin-playing-techniques, even up to some extent at the least, I can properly understand this ‘knowledgeable or logical-practice’. With this very little knowledge and ability only I could sit beside him in his Violin-Solo-concert at Hyderabad on 09-04-1974. Knowledgeable or logical-practice always doubles the regular practice in each and every respect. It is not that easy to understand Shri MSG’s Violin techniques to any Violinist leave alone attempting them. Some of our Violinists are used to bluff that they have seen their Gurus were playing them or some Violinists are used to claim that they have been practicing them in their regular practice. All these statements are deliberate lies only. None of them had ever dared to play them in any concert. That is the incredible greatness of those techniques. Very sadly and most unfortunately, not a single video of those finger-techniques had ever been taken by anybody or preserved for the educational purpose.of the next generations. That is the pity.

That is why, to preserve these rare and very difficult finger-techniques of Shri MSG I have trained my student Chi. O.Rajashekhar in some of these rare-techniques and initiated him play the Kalyani-Ata-Varna on the 4th string alone starting from Shuddha-madhyama as Shadja @ 120 bpm Metronome speed and uploaded it to ‘youtube.com/user/msakella’. Even after my retirement, I have tried to play some of the important violin-finger-techniques and uploaded the respective videos to the same site for the benefit of our kids.

I had a very nice example of illogical-practice. When I was as a violin-student, in a Violin-solo-concert, when the main-artist played some Trisra-gati-bow-techniques I have very inquisitively asked another Violin-teacher how could I play them. He, being the descendent of Dwaram’s school, replied ‘Unless you very regularly practice for a number of years the Tristhayi @ 1000 numbers per hour and minimum 3 hours daily at a single stretch you cannot even attempt those bow-techniques’. Even though I was also the descendant of Dwaram’s school, till now, I did never play this even 100 numbers altogether in my life-time. However, I could play many more of such bow-techniques with a logical way of practice.

Since many years, by following a very illogical and irrational way of learning all our kids are compelled to learn music wasting their invaluable time for many years, energy and money even without any guarantee of getting even the minimum standards of it. But, nowadays, by following a very strict and logical way of it all our kids, like in the above posts, are able to work on their own and learn things independently, very quickly and very efficiently under the able guidance of our efficient and honest teachers. amsharma

Dear Rasikas

I am here to share my experiences with msakella's school of music in bangalore, under the guidance of Smt Sandhya garu (Disciple of sri AMS garu)

Initially , Smt Sandhyagaru started in traditional system and it took quite number of months for children to come to Janta swaras. Even after that, there are lot of sruti problems and it was very difficult to correct each person since they cannot visualize the notes.

She shifted to AMS methods in Aug 2015 and from then, we are able to see good progress with children here. Initially, they struggled with Laya exercises. But once the Laya is stable, they were able to render all Sarali, Alankaras in 1 2 3 4 speed. Sruti also moved fast as they had a base of Casio. Dependency on the teacher reduced and children became more independent. So, we see different levels of people in the class, even though every one started at the same time.

There are about 10 children here out of which 6 students completed Geetas and they can sing Swara, Aa kara and Sahitya in 1 2 3 4 beats per second. They started with 60 speed and 4 of them can sing in 70 speed. 2 students can sing in 90 and 100 speed also.

It is proven that metronome is the best instrument to measure the capability of a person. The person can increase speed and sing aa kara. Even before Children reach Varnas, they get acquainted with notes, melakarta Ragas and they can understand the notation. Once they reach varnas, they are able to demonstrate as well. The melakarta cycles are designed so conveniently that any person can remember so easily.

My second daughter Chi Keertana, 11 years old, is learning from Sandhya garu For last 1 year in AMS system. We have seen that this system enabled her to learn Melakarta Ragas (With and without Gamakas) and 6 varnas in 1 note per beat and also 4 6 8 speeds. This system also enabled her to do creative swarakalpana in 3 different Ragas, with only guidance from a teacher. Practising aa kara in different speeds enabled her to learn Varnam sahityam in a better way.

All parents here are very happy and feel very fortunate to have their children to learn in this system under her. Sri AMS garu is big support to her and children here too.

I personally have seen my elder daughter Chi Padmaja growing in music for last 2 years under guidance of Sri AMS garu. She started music in her class 9th from him. She did not have any back ground or knowledge or interest in music. She started only because of our push. Now, I see that she has developed interest and was able to guide others also with detailed explanation and demonstration. She also takes guidance from Smt Chidrupa Lakshmi garu, who is disciple of Sri AMS garu. They run Sampradaya school of music, hyderabad where 150+ students are trained in this system. Technically, with minimal support, we see my daughter understanding from root. Till 8th, she was an average person in academics and now we see her excelling in studies as well.

I would call this system as "Frame work " to teach / learn music and can enhance the productivity of a person.

I want to thank Sri Akella garu, Smt Chidrupalakshmi garu and Smt Sandhyagaru for their continuous guidance and support.

Regards
Saraswathi

This sounds amazing! Congratulations to Sri Akella-ji, the gurus, the parents, and the students involved in this.

It would be great if a 'before and after' experiment was done using an independent assessor...

A student's journey in learning Carnatic Music from AMS Easy Methods

My son Sriram had the opportunity to learn Carnatic music basics from various teachers. These teachers are qualified and had reasonable accomplishment. The method was mostly around student repeating whatever teacher sang. There was no syllabus or text book to know that he as a student progressed from lesson to lesson. Once he went to Kalakshetra he has got a book and syllabus. The training was more structured. Learning has a combination of theory and practice with periodic assessment. While we have no idea of music as parents we could see progress purely from the structure of the method. However, we found some teachers not pronouncing certain syllables or words accurately which the student also learnt the same way. As the teachers don't know the language of the sahityam they could not pronounce properly. It is similar to the way English is spoken by many of us - our pronunciation is influenced by our mother tongue.

Once he started learning from AMS method, he got the benefit of clearly laid out Laya exercises, videos and text book. The basic Laya exercises did not make him sing. Made him understand some structure which we perceived as grammar of music language. While he had to self learn exercises, teacher played the role of a reviewer - if the exercises are done right and concept is understood. It took a bit of time for him to adjust to this unfamiliar way of learning music. Once certain progress is made, he got a keyboard. He was asked to play the swaram on keyboard. Once he played correctly on the keyboard it meant he understood the musical idea of the piece he is playing. Then he was asked to sing. In a matter of 10 months (with multiple breaks due to floods, school exams) he was able to perform creative Kalpanaswara exercises. He is also fortunately blessed to learn from the very person who discovered this easy method from his research.

A number of professionals approach seniors for seeking guidance on how to approach career aspirations and related preparations. Often the mentor tends to advise on what the seeker should do. Professor Clayton Christensen in his book “How will you measure your life” says it is better to give a framework that helps the seeker find answers on her/his own - rather than prescribing to the person who seeks advice.

Very similarly, AMS easy method helps the student find his way to learn and sing. Since teacher does not sing in this method except to clarify a point, many inefficiencies or mistakes of the teacher are not passed on to the student. Strain on the teacher is less. Duration of a class is short. Teacher can train more students in a given duration. To speak like an engineer, teaching productivity is multiplied. Distance education of Carnatic music is made possible.

We took him to Hyderabad for five days to Sampradaya School. https://www.facebook.com/Sampradaya-102258179863889/ We saw this method being used for a group of students under the guidance of a teacher. The learning of concepts is better as it enables mutual learning. Students are learning from teachers' guidance and also from other students. It enables rapid learning.

In summary: AMS easy method teaches students to fish on their own, rather than feeding them with fish. At my work place I started using this approach as a method for mentoring.

With reference to the post No 522 13 years old my great-grand-daughter, Chi Padmaja, having learnt music for only one-and-half years from me became able to sing a mini-concert along with Swarakalpna and Ragalapana. Along with my Lec-dem she also sang at IGNCA, Bangalore on 08-08-2015 and at IIT, Chennai on 30-08-2015.

While attending to the Lec-dem at Chennai I have stayed with my another grand-daughter, Chi. Sow. Meenakshi Madhavi Raveendra and found that her son, Chi. Shreeram is studying music in the famous Kalakshetra. Inquisitively when I tested him in my own way I found his instinctive rhythmical talent was very high but was not observed by the respective teachers who are always used to teach in their age old monotonous system. And from Oct., 2015 I have started initiating him in intricate rhythmical exercises weekly twice by Skype from Hyderabad. He very efficiently finished all these exercises and continued to learn mostly basing upon the key-board and metronome. But, due to heavy floods and other occasional obstructions the classes ran on very slow pace. In the meantime in Feb., 2016 I became bedridden due to severe illness from which I am gradually recouping now. So, I have entrusted him to Chi. Padmaja who proved herself a reliable teacher. Since then, by learning from her he had finished 5 or 6 Varnas and also became able to sing even creative Swarakalpana of which the respective urls are furnished by his father in the above post. This obviously proves that even a B-grade musician can very efficiently make a kid learn the basics.

To tell the fact, almost all our musicians, irrespective lf their stature, are performers only but not teachers at all about which many are not aware at all. That is why they all have illogically dumped all the syllabi in the music schools, colleges and Departments of music in the Universities with a number of items or compositions only very pitiably throwing the responsibility of acquiring the knowledge of Manodharma Sangita upon the poor aspirant himself/herself. That is why most of these candidates passing these examinations do not have the ability either to sing even the Alankaras or Varnas both in Chaturashra and Trisra-gatis or minimum Swarakalpana or Ragalapana. But, in this novel and logical method of learning music each and every kid can do all these things very efficiently and successfully even within the first year of learning. TO TELL THE TRUTH ANY TRUE-TEACHER CAN VERY EASILY MAKE ANY KID, WHO PROPERLY SINGS THE ALANKARAS AND VARNAS BOTH IN CHATURASHRA AND TRISRA-GATIS, SING EVEN CREATIVE SWARAKALPANA HARDLY WITHIN THREE MONTHS.

Even though Chi. Shreeram has been learning music in Kalakshetra in the same old monotonous system of teaching music when he was logically exposed and initiated he became able to sing even creative swarakalpana successfully.

I sincerely hope that the respective teachers of this reputed institute will certainly do the needful to bring other students also on par with Chi. Shreeram and furnish the respective urls in these columns for the benefit of the other aspirants. amsharma

Respected sir (A.M.S),
My name is Akhil Chennu,
i have learned previously carnatic music for one year in an institute and now i shifted to other place for my higher studies where there is no scope for learning carnatic music.
i was following you A.M.S easy methods since one month practicing daily according to the schedule given in the book, believe me i have gained so much regarding knowledge, vocal strength...etc. To keep simple in one month, i have gained more than what i have learned in the previous for one year.
thanks for also helping me regarding the doubts in the phone call itself and motivating me through your work.
the laya exercises had taught me alot and i cant express the value of that exercises, they are simply awesome.
thanks may be a small word for this work, but i will be thankful to you for my whole life for this greatest opportunity you have given.
thank you so much Sharma Sir.

Dear Rasika members,

As shared in some of my previous posts, my second daughter also started music freshly under guidance of Smt Sandhya garu in Bangalore 1.4 years back in AMS methods. She is in 6th class now. With these methods, under the guidance of teacher, I am very happy to see her progress. I am seeing progress of all students of Sandhya garu.

In fact, once Varnams start, they are able to understand the symbolized notation and able to apply gamakas and Kampitas in varnams with clear differentiation. For couple of varnas, Children are encouraged to write anuswara notation on their own. This enables children to get more acquaintance with notations and swaras. They are also encouraged to learn 32 melakarta ragas before entering into varnas.

she is able to complete 7 varnas with guidance from teacher where teacher does not sing or sings very minimal. This method is enabling faster and independent learning.

I am attaching some links for reference

What we observed is - There is a template / Frame work defined by Sr Akella garu to do creative Swara kalpana in a very short time in an efficient way.

Here, the Teacher made sure that the student enters through that frame work with Jatis even before entering into Geetas.

By the time they complete one or 2 geetas, Children are comfortable with Jatis in different combinations and it enables child to do creative swarakalpana efficiently and effectively in a short duration of time

The role of teacher is very important here as a guide and mentor for every child. I observed that Sandhyagaru is using the AMS frame work to ease the teaching thereby enabling children to learn faster. There is a logical and sequential approach to achieve the same. This is why children are able to progress further.

Thanks to Sri AMS garu for his easy methods and Smt Sandhyagaru for their support.
