“Guitar & Keyboard Interludes and Chord Progressions in Ilaiyaraaja Songs” – Performance Workshop
(Open to Guitar and Keyboard Players of all levels and ages)

Ilaiyaraaja’s songs and BG scores are a treasure chest for guitar and keyboard players – From iconic guitar songs like Ilaya Nila, Enn Iniya Pon Nilave, Raja Raja Chozhan Naan, Paadiva Thendrale, Megam Kottatum, Poove Sempoove and so many others to famous Piano/keyboard songs such as Poo malaiye thol serava, Yeh Unnaithane, Enn Vaanile, Punnagai Mannan theme, Mouna Ragam theme and many more. Many of these parts are quite complex and and involve understanding how certain scales and chord progressions work.
In this unique performance workshop, Prasanna will work with you and help you play your favorite guitar and keyboard interludes and show you the chords for many of the songs and help you understand how they work conceptually. Please feel free to bring your guitar, keyboard and your favorite list of songs and enjoy playing and learning with Prasanna.
