I've recently published a new book called Indian Raags for Piano Made Easy - which I hope may be of interest to any readers here (or their children) who are learning to play the piano!


It is a collection of six Indian raags (3 Hindustani and 3 Carnatic), re-imagined for piano, and simplified for fledgling pianists (both children and adults). The purpose is to provide an introductory experience of classical Indian music-making in an easy, hands-on way at a piano, offering a very accessible first encounter with improvisation. It is designed for near-beginners through to early intermediate players, and can be used as a stepping stone to the 258-page book for more advanced pianists: How to Play Indian Sitar Raags on a Piano (Intensely Pleasant Music, 2016). 

Contents: Raags Latangi, Madhuvanti and Todi (each in 3 versions: really easy, easy, and quite easy/not so easy), plus Vachaspati, Patdeep, & Desh. Accompanying videos/mp3s at http://www.pianoraag.com

 

Available from http://www.pianoraag.com or http://www.lulu.com/shop/john-pitts/indian-raags-for-piano-made-easy/paperback/product-23482576.html
