Raag Yaman

piano-keyboard-diagram

Last week we explored creating our own melodies, using an Indian raga, called Yaman.  Many of the children at Forest Park seem to have access to piano keyboards at home.  Use this diagram to help you find the notes “F” and “C.”  Play them over and over again with your left hand while you play in Yaman with your right hand.  Remember that F and C are you most restful notes while E and B express the most tension because they want to go to F and C.

Hear Dr. Bob play Yaman on the clarinet here!
