Colouring primary classes with music
Karachi: Ustad Ameer Ali, a teacher of music at the Sindh University, Jamshoro, has
designed a book on music called "Rang, Mosiqi aen Khushbu" for primary school
children in an attempt to introduce music to primary-level students. The
150-page book is now being published by the Sindhi Adabi Board, Jamshoro, The
News has learnt.
The book, written for children studying in nursery and
classes I to V, would become part of the curriculum taught at the primary school
level in all government schools in the province. It has been learnt that
certain government departments have shown a willingness to implement Ali's idea
to add music to primary school level curriculum in all government schools in the
province, and adequate legislation is being considered in this regard.
Ali belongs to a traditional classical music school known as Jesalmir
family. Born in 1961 in the house of Ustad Ramzan Ali Khan in Hyderabad, Ameer
Ali has written three books on music in Sindhi language. He
said that he wanted to initiate the music project as he believed that music
could be taught to children at a very young age.
The Ustad said that by
teaching at the university and seeing the interest of youth towards learning
music, he decided to implement the idea of music being taught at primary level.
He maintained, however, that only those who possess knowledge of music could
teach this book. There is a complete guide for teachers how to teach it in
classes of different grades, while rhythms in Sindhi and English are also given
to facilitate students.
Ali started learning at home in a "traditionally
natural environment' of music and instruments. His love for music is old, but he
claimed that he is trying to promote music by contributing books for children
and the people who have respect for the art.
He already has nine volumes
of CDs to his credit, which are popular among the music-loving folks of the
province. He is compiling his fourth book, "The World of Musical Instrument",
which is likely to be published soon, however he maintains that his children's
book is the first effort of its kind, and it would go some way in reviving the
Talking about the technicalities of musical art, Ameer Ali
said that there are 36 'Surs' (rhythms), including six Ragas and 30 tunes in
music. He said that presently there is a vacuum of opportunities to learn music,
its rhythms and playing proper instruments.
He also claimed that many
popular artistes in Sindh sang without actually knowing the alphabets and laws
of music, which are must for any singer. He went on to saying that even the
leading Faqirs of Bhitai, who recite his poetry at the shrine of a great poet in
Bhit Shah, have lost the techniques introduced by their forefathers to portray
the image of Bhitai in its true essence and musical arrangement. Therefore, he
said, there is a need to promote classical music in Sindh, which is home of many
music related families.
In his book on music for school children, among
others, he has especially composed the poetry of Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai. "It
took me 11 years to give a new shape to the compositions of Bhitai's poetry," he
said. According to him, he has composed Bhitai's poetry in different style,
which he said does justice to the essence of his poetry and musical
Ali said that when it comes to classical music, laws of rhythm are
only available in India, adding that he is trying to take initiative to find the
laws of music here and adopt them. He said that Sindh has a long history of
being home to leading classical singers, many of whom migrated from India in
different times and settled here because they received immeasurable love and
appreciation from the local people. The news
