      $50.00 US per month! Hmmmmmm! I’ve been to India twice. The cost of living proportional to Canada makes the tuition course relatively quite “OUT” there! (Magnified by our seriously reduced Canadian dollar value as compared to the US dollar.) Maybe the creator of for this course believes this price is warranted for this new never seen online course.
      Is this price correct?
      Over the years I’ve gladly enjoyed subscriptions to online courses by Mike Marshall, Caterina Lichtenberg, Don Stiernberg and Matt Flinner so I feel I do have some experiential knowledge permitting me to bring up this point.
      I feel these teachers and their courses have developed excellent reputations over the years and are cost efficient.
      I hope your Carnatic courses will be spectacular and warrant your asking price. I realize and honour and highly respect how much time goes into developing these courses.
      In the meantime I suggest you research the present value of already existing reputable online courses if you already haven’t.

      Hi Barry. Thanks for the interest in the article firstly. I do understand your concern on the pricing from a comparison point of view with other online courses.
      Please be informed that this is the first and probably only Carnatic learning course out there which is online and on-demand. I am also proud to say that our lessons have been structured and designed very carefully to cater to all age groups and to musicians of all learning levels.
      That said, this pricing is not only for the recorded lessons but also includes periodic global webinars for all signed up students where they get to interact with me on a live lesson to clarify their questions etc. We also have a very unique system of 3-way learning for each excersise that provides ample scope to learn every aspect of the lesson in detail.
      I hope this explains the reasoning behind our price. And if you are interested, we would love for you to try out the launch pass since it gives 20-day access to our portal of lessons and the global launch webinar on 21st October.
