Notation Templates for Hindustani Classical Music

Students of Hindustani Classical Music often struggle with the 'writing down' part of learning a composition. My gurujee taught me a simple and elegant way for the same and I am very happy to share the same in the form of templates for different 'Thekas' (or 'taals') - just print the PDF file and fill it like a form! You don't have to write using the notation symbols suggested in the template either - Paluskar, Bhatkhande, or any other notation system will work equally well - since the key learning aid in these templates is about explicitly utilizing the spacing within the 'maatras'. Happy learning ...

You can click these links to download the notation files to your computer. Alternatively, Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the links to the ringtone files. Choose the appropriate save or download option. The options vary depending on your browser: for Internet Explorer it is Save Target As, for Firefox it is Save Link As, for Safari it is Download Linked File.

Teentaal and its shorter version
Ekataal and its shorter version
Jhaptaal and its shorter version

Sample: To help you understand better how to use these templates, here is a sample demonstrating the use of the Jhoomra template with the traditional 'vilambit' 'khayal' - 'e baaje jhanana'. Note the use of a different symbol for the 1/4th 'maatra' than what is mentioned in the template. Also note the use of the symbol for the 1/8th 'maatra' though none is suggested in the template. :)

Note: These can be made in a similar manner for any other 'theka' (or 'taala') too. You can either make your own or send me an email and I will do it as I get time.
