    I love to do kirtan and I've improved a lot in the last few years but it seems like I'm not getting any better now. There as some people I know who do amazing and beautiful kirtan, and I want to be able to sing and play like that. I practice everyday, and I learn the meanings of the shabads so I can sing from my heart. What should I do to get better?

    • Get a proper music teacher
    • Learn other styles of singing
    • Learn other instruments
    • etc
    Practice is to become consisteny with what you do so that you make less errors while doing it, you need to start learning new things!
    The more you learn the better you become. ;) Get crazy with it!

    It might be time for you to seek out a teacher who can take you to the next level. That may mean travel to another country -- or perhaps travel within the country where you live. Perhaps a temporary stay in a city where there are schools operated by reknowned kirtaan teachers.

    I can list some if that thought appeals to you. You would have to look into financing your living and your new education. There may even been scholarship money. Without looking into it systematically, it is hard to say. But the answers are on the Internet.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
