I wrote this book in order to build a bridge between Indian and Western music. Indian music isn't always written down in a way that all can understand it, and my goal is to enable the wishes of all musicians who want to play Indian music on their instruments. As always with Indian music, though, the notes on the page are just a guide, and all stylistic improvisation is welcome and advised.

I have chosen some of the most melodious, recent Bollywood songs hoping that different age groups can relate to the songs. Tracks for each song, customized to the arrangement that I felt sounded best when I played it on alto saxophone, are available for purchase separately on a CD. The notes in this book are provided in three different keys (Bb, C and Eb) so that a variety of instrumentalists can play these songs. Bb instruments commonly include clarinet, tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, trumpet, Bb cornet and euphonium. Instruments in C include flute, oboe, piccolo, piano, trombone and all string instruments. The most common Eb instruments are alto saxophone and baritone saxophone.
