Now lets start our journey into the introductory theory
chapters as given in the Ragopedia™ manual. We hope
they help you demystify some of the Indian music
jargon. We are also looking for ways to easily
present the music notes with staff notation on the
Internet. Any help in this regard will be greatly
For the time being the notes follow the Indian sargam
notation standards. That is Sa (C), Re (D), Ga (E),
Ma (F), Pa (G), Dha (A), Ni (B), Sa(u) (Upper octave
C). The Ragopedia® book features both sargam (Indian
solfegio) and staff notations.
