When it comes to learning and practice, the modern trend is to learn a few sarali swaras, then alankaras and geethams to the extent of 4 numbers and then 2 swarajathis which are very popular like Raravenu in Bilahari Raga and Sambasivayenave in Khamas Raga. In a matter of 6 months the students are graduated to Varnams and Krithis.
