The student should have completed CV101 and CV102 with Shankar Mahadevan Academy or should have knowledge of basics of Carnatic music which includes singing the Sarali and Janta Varisais in Mayamalavagowla in all the three speeds and the first two pillari geethams - Sri Gananatha and Kunda Gowra.
In the CV103 course the student is introduced to Dhaatu varisais (alternate/jumping note patterns) and Melsthayi varisais (upper octave note exrecises) in the Raga Mayamalavagowla, in all the three speeds. The remaining two malahari geethams will be completed. This level enhances the capability of the student to handle different speeds and introduces new exrecises for voice culture.
The course will also introduce graded assessments which the student will need to complete in a timely manner.
