But, unfortunately, till now, none had uploaded even a single video. While chatting with him I expressed my desire to learn music and was lamenting the fact that sangeteham was too late for me since I was too old. Last edited by mohan on Sun Jul 10, What I found was that if I had found my teacher in my teens, I could have easily become a performer. Some people seem to entertain the idea and subscribe to it very strongly that once you get old, you can not learn CM.
Having no other avocation, they can concentrate far more efficiently than adults and learn music very fast and efficiently, of course, basing upon the efficiency of the teacher. Another exception is one who has absolutely no aptitude – saangeetham when provided the right environment they will not learn. Leave alone the luck to become a professional artist but how many are ready enough to go through the hardship of vigorous and regular practice.
In my case my interest developed fairly late while I was in my teens. But, in our music, the person who sings sangeetam to 30 items or even more in a 3-hour concert will only be honoured as a legend and praised. It is simply stunning. On the other hand, I feel my ability to appreciate complexities and nuances of music has gone up over time. This is the very sad state of affairs of even the Universities, Colleges and Institutions brought out by some reputed organizations imparting music to the aspirants.
This continued for many years till I met the versatile artist T V Gopalakrishnan. Probably, though, few adults attend classes with the aim of becoming professional musicians.
Frankly, it was lack of discipline which stood in my way more than age and I lacked it at 14 too, I’m afraid. Flat Style by Ian Bradley. Quite a few years ago, when I knew even less than now, I asked a violinist if they ever found themselves having to accompany ragas they simply didn’t know.
I found this article insightful and wished to share it.
Any claims either way are true in certain contexts. Music teachers should encourage learning rather than discourage people. While the performer only performs what he can the teacher needs abundant and all-round ability in teaching which influences an entire generation itself. It is an emotional topic since a lot of people who did not get a chance to learn music at a young age for various reasons believe or would like to believe that they can sangeethamm reasonable competence and proficiency in carnatic music.
On a side note as someone said not everyone learns music with the aim to perform. Irrespective of this one can make progress and learn if they have the will to do so. More over, nowadays, nobody tries to sangfetham the elders openly of their inefficiencies and become controversial dangeetham me.
Age to start learning carnatic music –
Having recently listened to the successful-mini-music-concert of one of my disciple-kids, a gent at his age of 40 approached me to teach her daughter of 11 years age, who has been learning Gitas only since last three years, and I agreed.
There were very few teachers who were willing to teach an old man their words. Even a random search for any krithi on youtube throws up umpteen renditions by shady performers who want sanheetham, but lack the intellectual honesty to realise they r ruining this great artform.
He asked me a simple question. The scope for people who learn this art is very limited. As Music is a part of Saamaveda which has to be learnt from the early years of age and at the early hours of the day the music should also sangeethsm learnt in the same manner. In any University while all the students are younger ones, surprisingly, only in the Department of Music, we can certainly find more elderly students than youngsters. In general, no candidate is allowed to study the professional courses like medicine and engineering beyond 20 years of age and even the individuals after settling themselves in a job or business do not prefer to later study medicine or engineering.
But, in our country, where most of the people are eager about their rights and demands only but not the duties and responsibilities and also in the absence of any authorized training as a music-teacher many of the elders are resorting to teaching music increasing the impotents in music in our country. But, in the meantime, he himself became enthusiastic of giving a music-concert like my disciple-kid by learning music from me even before his daughter.
To avoid such complaints even the teachers are maintaining only the low standards in teaching which suit the elders and many are not aware that only the youngsters are put in loss by these low standards samgeetham teaching. Even at this age she made me get on stage and sing.
They will be able to learn anything with much less effort only if they are provided with the right environment. While this is true, it is our recent current gurus who reflect our current values in music and our musical taste. In fact, there has been a great facility in our music having no yard-stick either to assess the level of knowledge of the teacher or the quality of the lesson being imparted by the teacher or the quality attained by the aspirant in course of learning and this facility is availed to the full extent by each and every music-teacher on the globe.
Like any relationship, this one takes lwarn and effort.
I vividly recall the kritis I studied as a year old, but have to go back to my notes to jog my memory when in comes to kritis I learned in my 30s.
I had to discontinue my learning due to other reasons, not because Learh was old, after a few years. So we cannot ever give a categorical answer to this question.
