  4. 4. But there is a long debate regarding the origin of Indian classical musicSome says music comes from nature, from bird’s songAnother very strong opinion is the origin of Indian musicHas come from mantras from Vedas (ancient script of Hindus)The basic of Indian music consists three art forms1) Vocal music2) Instrumental music3) DanceThese forms are expressed in personalized art formsMaintaining the tradition of gurus (master) and gharanasThe system of Indian music is based upon two important pillars: rag and tal ,rag is the melodic form while tal is the rhythmic. eIndian rag can be equated with western term scale,But the rhythmic forms are very wide, complex and multidimensional erVaries according to the nature of songs and the nature of the race or community singing the song. ehThe practice of the rag and tal is not same throughout the country. usHowever there are two major traditions of Indian music,One is north Indian (Hindustani music) another one is south Indian tradition. tmBoth the systems are basically similar but differ in nomenclature and performance practice.Our musical tradition exists in the ethnic diversity of present India from the earlier times of ourCivilization consequently Indian music has developed within a very complex interaction between different peoples of different races and culturesthe Indian music is based on melody or single notes played in a given order, while the Western music is based on harmony: a group of notesknown as chords played together.From very early days, music was considered a means of moral and spiritual redemption rather than mere entertainment. Indeed, the process oflearning to play music closely resembles traditional spiritual disciplines. According to Ravi Shankar, it contains three key elements: 1. The guru – coming in parampara (disciple succession) 2. Vinaya – humility (a key personal characteristic required in many spiritual disciplines) 3. Sadhana – regular and disciplined practiceIndian music includes varieties of folk,Popular musicDevotional music

Music is the first and last poetry of man, the rhythm of music and the rhythm of heart are not onlyinterconnected but complement each other all time.So try to know and understand your basic rhythm of your heart.The heartbeat is a form of musical rhythm, and if you have a musical ear, you can hear heart problems a lot easier."Many heart rhythm disturbances are stress-related, and you have cells misfiring. It is possible to redirect or retrain them with musical therapy.Music was found to reduce heart rates and to promote higher body temperature - an indication of the onset of relaxation. Combining music with
  11. 11. relaxation therapy was more effective than doing relaxation therapy alone. Music is always good for health, if we hear actually from the core ofour heart. If we hear all time Melodious tune & also can visualize theMelodious tune, we cannot be destructive, possessive andDominating .so be musical, be rhythmic .Slow musical tune helps us always to develop patience and concentrationSix important guidelines of music therapy which will help finally to reduce the stress of human mind through music:1) To wash away stress, try taking a 20-minute "sound bath." Put some relaxing music on your stereo, and then lie in a comfortable position on acouch or on the floor near the speakers. For a deeper experience, you can wear headphones to focus your attention and to avoid distraction.2) Choose music with a slow rhythm - slower than the natural heart beat which is about 72 beats per minute. Music that has repeating or cyclicalpattern is found to be effective in most people3 )As the music plays, allow it to wash over you, rinsing off the stress from the day. Focus on your breathing, letting it deepen, slow and becomeregular. Concentrate on the silence between the notes in the music; this keeps you from analyzing the music and makes relaxation more complete.4) f you need a stimulation after a day of work, go for a faster music rather than slow calming music. Dancing is most effective for sound bodyand mind.5) Take walks with your favorite music playing on the walkman. Inhale and exhale in tune with the music. Let the music takes you. This is a greatstress reliever by combining exercise (brisk walk), imagery and music. e6) Listening to the sounds of nature, such as ocean waves or the calm of a deep forest, can reduce stress. Try taking a 15- to 20-minute walk if eryoure near the seashore or a quiet patch of woods. If not, you can buy tapes of these sounds in many music stores.
