Wasanti Paranjape, Musical Pioneer

Mrs. Paranjape received her early education at the Government Girls School in Akola, where the language medium was Marathi. Thanks to the pioneering work of the renowned Hindustani musicologist Pandit V. N. Bhatkhande, music was part of the school curriculum in Maharashtra. Bhatkhande created a modern system of pedagogy from the completely oral tradition of Hindustani music, introducing a syllabus, examinations, and, most importantly, textbooks containing music written in letter notation. Mrs. Paranjape studied under the Bhatkhande system for three years. She studied with private teachers for three more years in order to achieve the Visharad at the Gandharva Mahavidyalaya Music School. The Visharad's basic requirement was to learn and demonstrate fifty Hindustani ragas.
