  • Practice pads for hands– 12-inch size. Recommended brands: Muman, Zildjian, Vic Firth, Stagg (preferably purchase a practice pad that comes with a stand, if not please purchase a snare stand or a good strong stool to keep it on). This is very essential for a drum student to practice.

I am a beginner in guitar, what instrument should I purchase?

For a beginner in guitar, we would recommend the following:

  • Type– Acoustic Guitar, you can also purchase an electric guitar but that would also require an amplifier and/or cables.
  • Brands– Pluto, Granada, Yamaha, Fender (based on your budget)
  • Size – Full size
  • Preferable model is Yamaha F310 (Acoustic)
  • Additional Items– Plectrums (at least 10) and a clip-on tuner (to tune the guitar)

I am a beginner in keyboard or piano, what instrument should I purchase?

For a beginner in keyboard/piano, we would recommend the following beginner level keyboard(s) (61-key):

  • We recommend the Casio CTK 4400, Yamaha I455, Yamaha PSR E453 or Yamaha PSR E353
  • The two main criteria to look for in the keyboard is that is must have 61 keys and Touch Response.
  • Touch Response (Sensitive) means that the keyboard should sound loud if you play it with force whereas if you play it softly, the sound should be less – essentially, it responds to finger touch and how much pressure you put on the keys.

Where can I purchase musical instruments?

  • The easiest way is to purchase online at www.amazon.in or www.bajaao.com
  • Local stores in Bangalore include Tone Zone (Opposite Brigade Metropolis) or Sound Glitz (Innovative Multiplex, Outer Ring Road, Marathahalli)
