Welcome to H.R.H. Princess Mahachakri Sirindhorn Music Library

H.R.H. Princess Mahachakri Sirindhorn

        Welcome to the online resource for Thai traditional music. We hope to bring the ancient art form to the web in a way that the whole world can experience. There is a rich history behind every aspect of the classical music. The making of the instruments, and their history; the origin and evolution of the songs; and the diversity of the Thai nation itself are all relevant to the exploration and discovery of this vast field of music.

         Prospective students must first make a ceremony to the teachers both present and past before beginning to practice. This brings a peace of mind; that wisdom is never lost and concentration may begin. Typically the tradition has been passed down orally from generation to generation.

         The music is based on motifs which once memorized can be improvised and used to create other compositions and phrases. As we experiment and grow with new technology, we will find new ways for you to experience wonderful music.
