    R; Violin is considered to be the most difficult instrument to learn (apart from Sarangi). It takes time. I can relate to you my own experience. All three of my children started violin when they were five. It took them more than ten years to reach the leading position in their orchestra (first chair). Be patient !

    I have all the three books that I mentioned about in an earlier message. If anyone of you wants a sample song in western notation I will be pleased to provide it.
    Emmie te Nijenhuis' book has only varNams and Chinnasami Mudaliar's book has many Tyagaraja kritis.

    Hi Mr.rajraj,

    Yes, piano is easier to play unlike string instrument. Since he is 7 or have not started with proper carnatic music, could be, he is struggling a bit. Agree with you, have to be patient and I am..

    And, Mr.Lakshman, yes, pls do provide it. Recently, bought a book and the title is The structure of Music in raga and western systems and the author is Mr.Raja Ramana.

    It has some simple songs like vara veena, sri gananatha and they are quite simple to play. Anyways, pls do provide sample notations whichever you can.

    Thanks in advance.

    Rgds.

    R,

    Tamil film Songs in 'S R G' notation: http://tfmpage.com/notes/

    There's a simple way to get sheetmusic. Download any midi file from the net (just google for 'indian midi' or 'tamil midi'), and open it with software like cakewalk. You can get the western notation that you can simply print.

    For carnatic songs, I have seen some 'Learn harmonium' books that give indian notation. Such books help in playing gamakam's.
