Just USD 7 (less than ₹500) to start using ALL my courses!

You can now access One BIG knowledge base with ALL the course materials I produce, using a SINGLE subscription.

I have decided to bring all the different courses together and make available in one big knowledge base. Simple access, without restriction to learn towards any of your music interest, based on your current skill level.

Last year I released my video based courses. Based on observations and feedback, I am improving the course content constantly. Now you can benefit from proven course content if you want to play Indian raga and Film songs OR rhythm and chords OR in the long term want to be able to play melodies and chords on your own … free and independent.

Benefits of One to One classes at a fraction of the price

The video courses and other resources are based on my years of playing (I started playing Indian style guitar when I was 11 years old) and more importantly real life experience from teaching my students.

The course content you get is based on the one to one and video course students i have had. The core content that is repeated can now be accessed without waiting for a teacher to give it to you. You can use it at your own pace, based on your skill level.

I keep getting more and more questions and problems from students and emails. Each of those helps me make more and more content solving your problem. You get access to solutions for each problem I am asked, each learning situation I address, by using this subscription. No extra price.

As a member, each time an update is made, have the fun of discovering a new tip or solution that you can immediately use to make yourself a better player.

The cost of the monthly subscription is lower than what one would pay for 45 minutes one on one session with me.

So,

  1. you have access to all of the courses I make, to each teaching content I make based on real life experience, from one on one and other students
  2. you get to ask me questions, clear your doubts, clarify your learner path, make fast and sure progress
  3. you can use the content repeatedly unlike with a regular teacher where after the class, the teacher is gone
  4. you can use it at your own pace
  5. you can choose what to learn based on your own goals and skill levels
  6. at a fraction of the price

This is the best way for you to learn from me.

The material to start with and use for a few months is already there. I am updating regularly.

Now that I just need to update content in one single subscription area, the process is easier for me. I can keep making videos based on the questions from that week and you will benefit from it immediately.

As part of the subscription you get all my teaching, all the answers and solutions I have provided. Learn and benefit from my experience + the experience of other students.

When you join now, you have the advantage of being with me on the journey from the beginning. Years from now we can look back together with satisfaction and remember how it all started 🙂

Here are two variations you can choose from, based on your needs:

Option 1: Get access to the courses + Custom Guidance through Skype messages and Video Corrections

  • The first month access is for just USD7 and if you choose to continue, it is at USD47. 
  • Once you join, you have immediate access to the course content. Choose and start based on your interest and your skill level.
  • You will be given Shyam’s Skype ID. Add him to skype and send him your practice video when possible to get started with custom corrections and suggestions on what to focus. Usually students send in videos once every month or twice every month. I don’t keep any limit on that – you can send me weekly too – just make sure you are putting into practice what is discussed in my response videos.
  • 2 – 3 days response time. So you can get your corrections fast and do your practice.
  • You have access to the students only Facebook group too. We know how peer interaction and being able to see what others are doing motivates us and makes our learning faster and surer.
  • The 2nd month onwards you can request for song tutorials. As a member, your request will have higher preference.

Instead of looking for a short term savings, join and see if it benefits you. It could save months or years of futile effort for you, thereby saving money, time and possibly your music playing interest in the long term

Option 2: Get access to the courses + FB group for Q & A

  • Once you join you have immediate access to the course content.
  • Join the Students only FB group (Only paid students in the group – no outside access – focused and safe group).
  • Shyam will answer your questions once every two weeks.
  • You can also choose to get an email from Shyam twice a month asking for doubts. If you don’t use FB, you can also reply to that email with your doubts, which will then be answered along with the FB questions. The video with the answers will be available in the course section under Q & A sessions. 

The first month access is for just USD7 and if you choose to continue, it is at USD27.

Click on the button above to start using the content. You have the advantage to start using the content at a lower price. With time, when there is more content and the number of students increase, the subscription prices can go up, naturally.

Who is it for?

Beginner, advanced beginner, intermediate… want to play songs, chords, rhythm… find chords…

Ultimately we want to be able to find melodies and chords on our own. Improvise and Compose. Play songs fluently, rhythm and chords as we want…

There are skills and subskills associated with each. Learner paths for the person, based on goals and skill levels. (Any time you have any questions about your specific personal learner path, just send a mail to musicianself@gmail.com or click to contact)

Whatever your goals and skill level be, start from where you are, towards whom you want to be.

There is content for beginners who just got a guitar or is about to get a guitar. The very basic, smart guitar learning methods.

If someone is a beginner wanting to start Indian style playing – the introduction to indian guitar module will take care of that.

Been playing for sometime, and want to be better with Indian style playing? The Indian Guitar Skill Growth library will take care of that.

Want Carnatic specific teaching? Geethams, kritis, keerthanas videos are available and being updated over time.

Want to start with chords and rhythm? I will show you the smart way. Patterns and guitar specific methods that reduces your learning time while learning in a way that makes sense, and is scalable. Rhythm basics and advanced topics will be discussed in the subscription area over time.

Want to find chords on your own? Raga chords will take care of that. I will be expanding that with videos explaining the process with examples.

Ear training, playing rhythm and chord while singing etc will be updated. We are just starting.

Why all courses in one place?

In one to one classes, I ask the student about their interest. Based on their interest and their skill level, they get guidance from me without restrictions on the topic.

I wanted the same in a video based situation too. It was artificial to divide Chord courses and Rhythm courses. Many raga leads students wanted to learn chords too.

That is why this subscription method is a real solution with a lot of advantages. Please see the list of content below on this page.

You as a student can choose what you want to learn based on your interest and skills levels – no confusion or depending on someone else to decide the course for you. If you want to play lead like song is being sung, go to the courses in that topic, start from the basics or choose the videos based on your skill level. As simple as that.

To make it even easier, I do provide you with videos explaining the different learner paths one can take and which courses you may take.

You have seen my youtube tutorials at musicianself. You know that I want you to go towards YOUR musical freedom and independence.

You can start learning music with remembering and repeating, but then, as soon as possible, ascend to understanding what you are doing, being able to modify and adapt and improvise to your own needs… Being able to find melody and chords on your own ultimately.

Every day I get emails on how someone has benefitted from my videos. Makes me happy. 🙂 Youtube commentors are very kind to me and let me know they have found my videos useful.

So, from my side, I wanted to make the course videos I make available as soon as possible without being restricted having to divide by course and wait till all the content is complete etc.

I make videos out of real life questions that students ask, based on the learner paths students take. I want you to benefit from them immediately instead of them staying unused in my hard disk. Now we can.

You can cancel anytime. Maybe you want just chords. Use that part. Decide to stop? Do so, just let us know and you won’t be charged again. You can come back and continue anytime. Videos will be added constantly.

Some of the courses will have quizzes in between. It is necessary to make sure the prerequisites are done before attempting the next level. This is necessary to prevent overwhelm, instead make sure the learning difficulty is just right.

Now, you have access to the whole content I have made, I will make in the future, with a simple fee structure.

No commitment, cancel anytime.

Use according to your needs and skills.

Use one of the two options given below. Very happy to come to know you, as we interact through facebook or through skype and video recordings. (I’m blessed with the best of humans as my students. I am very happy they come in touch with me. Looking forward to each new connection.)
