Hindustani/Hindi beginning piano music
« on: November 19, 2014, 01:56:19 PM »
I have an 11-year-old middle-beginner piano student who Indian-American. Her father asked me if I could find her some Hindi music. I need to confirm whether he meant music with lyrics in Hindustani, or melodies more or less based in Indian music.

In either case, does anybody have any recommendations for beginning piano music like this?

Thanks for any responses!

I would think that a portion of Indian music is unplayable on the piano since they use quarter tones. Also, a large portion is without bars and purely improvised.

Ask the father for a few YouTube music that he likes as "Hindi" music. This might be a precious chance to teach harmony progression.
