Keyboard Lesson 7: Laya (tempo) and beats

Tempo, beats, 3 laya and an amazing song 'Kal Ho Na Ho'


Music is a combination of melody and rhythm. In lessons 1 to 6 we discussed the melody part which is represented in Sa Re Ga Ma. Now we should also learn about rhythm. Here we are learning about the concepts of laya (tempo) and its 3 types, and about matra. We are also going to learn 'Kal ho na ho' in moderate laya.


Music has been infusing joy into our lives since time immemorial. From the beautiful sounds of nature to the songs we hear on our phones, music is all around us! Soor Malhar aims to provide quality music lessons that will enable music learners across the globe to create the joy for themselves and others alike. Come, let's feel the magic of melodies!
