The lessons or classes are taught by highly able teachers and reputed musicians. IML have been  offering online  music lessons since 2002 and produced a good number of students those have become performing musicians! IML uses traditional teaching methods and  offers tailor-made learning materials to match individual student’s needs.  IML follows the method adapted in one to one ‘Guru-Shishya Parampara’ system of training. This is giving very good results. IML students with the received guidance added with their own necessary practicing gave two types of results; 

(1) The keen beginners who joined IML developed  general performance abilities early, and

(2) The students those had general performance abilities and wanted to become concert-artists came out as performers and received warm acceptance  from the listeners.

For keen students those wish to come up as good performers IML suggests that they should visit Kolkata whenever they can and stay with their Gurus for sometime. During this period the students will go through long hours of guided practicing [riyaz] and will receive training sitting close to their teachers. This is known as ‘seena baseena taalim’. IML found that this mix mode of teaching, that is online teaching mixed with some Seena-Baseena Taalim help the students to understand the art closely and the Kolkata ambience helps in this as a catalyst.

If you are a serious learner and looking for professional music guidance for sitar, sarod, vocal music, tabla, or flute, learning through Indian Music Lessons online is a good answer. Indian Music lessons is a modern version of the ancient, one-to-one, traditional method of teaching (guru-shishya parampara).
