    I presume you are talking of Karnatak music. I don't think there are on-line sites available for this that give western notations.
    There are some books that I know of that have songs in staff notation
    1: Oriental Music in Western Notation by A.M.Chinnaswamy Mudaliar
    2: VarNas by Emmie te Nijanhuis
    3: a series of books by a lady from Texas-I am not sure of the details but can look for them.

    Thanks, Lakshman. That site was really useful and tried a couple of songs.

    But, on the second thought, am planning to buy a book, not thro' online. Since I want to go through the book personally, can you suggest any shops/book, author name either in US(preferably in new jersey) or chennai?

    Sorry for the continuous pestering and thanks for understanding.

    Bye.

    R: Visit the library in any well known music college. They should have books on Indian classical music. Or, visit any leading book store in NYC. You can review the book and order it in any book store.

    The best place to look for karnatak music books in Chennai is at The Karnatic Music Book Centre, New 27, old 14 Sripuram 1st street, Royapettah. 600 014. Also Srutilaya 93/3-A Royapettah High Road, Luz Corner, Mylapore. Chennai 600 004

    Thanks, both of you for the info.,

    And, rajraj, can you suggest me any book store in NYC becoz, in NJ, used to visit Samash where they have instruments and books based on the same, but they dont have any Indian based instrument or music books.

    Thank you so much for the favor in advance.

    Help again, Mr.Lakshman & Mr.Rajraj

    Hi both of you & others,

    Now that my son has started reading notes easily, am into the next step. If there is any site with simply notes for Indian songs(classical or cine), it would be of great help.

    I just checked the site which Mr.Lakshman has given and dont see any notes but, keys/letters.

    Any idea on what I am asking for..

    Waiting for a reply..

    Thanks & Rgds.

    R: I am not aware of any site where you will get music sheets for Indian songs. Try printing what you have seen (keys/letters) and ask the music teacher to code it as sheet music. It is not that difficult to do. My son did it for a song to play on violin by just listening to the song. If I find any sheet music I will let you know.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, Rajraj for replying..

    Actually, I managed to find a book from Chennai which has some keerthanais; of course, my son though he is 7, managed to play a few slokams like aarathi, lingashtagam, but it takes a little extra time to get it done perfectly. So, thought of checking with more notes/notations as he can go fastly.

    And, also the other site which Mr.Lakshman has mentioned has notes in Indian notes like sa ri ga....so thought that getting notes without letters(western or indian) is also easier.

    I think that I am clear here. Anyways, if you dont know based on my explanations, that is fine.

    Thanks a lot for reading my query patiently.

    Rgds.
