5.0 out of 5 stars great for when you don't have access to a teacher 1 Feb 2006
By opinion8 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
i use this book pretty much every day

has history, theory, tons of exercises and plenty of compositions to help you begin to learn some of the basics of hindustani classical music

i've had other books before, but often they just list ascending and descending scales and sometimes a chalan which doesn't really help you grasp the real sound or core of a rag - of course, a book can't come close to actually studying with a master, but this can definitely help during the times where we must study without a teacher

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have 25 Jun 2007
By Jonathan Dimond - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a must-have, not just for reference on your library shelf, but as a practical workbook - which simulates the first year's study at the famous Ali Akbar Khan college of music in California (as the title declares).
What most appeals is the clarity of the editing by George Ruckert - himself a formidable performer, teacher and academic on the subject. Peppered with enjoyable photos and quotes from Khan-sahib himself, this book makes the learning experience as close as it can to being with a master, and would be a valuable aid even if you do have the real "guru" experience.

great book for beginners. Would be 5 stars if it had a CD of the exercises along with it. Still recommended to add to your collection though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too expensive. 23 Feb 2012
By Robert D. Goldberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great book. Even though I am not a musician, I love Northern Indian Classical Music. This book does a good job explaining the theory behind the music. Like everything you pay for quality. As good as this book is I belive that $59.00 is way to expensive. Wait till the price comes down, or you can get a used copy. Don't pay full price.
