    the ideal instrument to use for vocal riaz is a harmonium. if u dont hav 1 then dont worry, a guitar will do the job although not 100%.

    take any scale [ people usually take the C maj. scale ] if u feel it is too high 4 u the u may lower it down to Bb or B maj. or any other scale.

    play the entire scale [ 1 oct. ] repetatively holding on to each note for at least 3 secs. [ later on u may inc. ur speed ] try to sing along according to the note u r playing. for eg. if u play the C maj. scale , then as u play c,d,e,f,g,a,b sing the notes along as u play [ normally indian people sing sa , re , ga , ma, pa, dha, ni ] instead of c,d,e,f,g,a,b.

    later on try out different combinations such as ....
    sa re ga , re ga ma, ga ma pa [ c d e, e f g , f g a ] or
    sa ga , re ma , ga pa [ c e , d f , e g ] ........and so on.......

    best of luck.

    i beg to differ,as someone who has been learning vocal music for ten years. for starters, the harmonium is definitely NOT the ideal accompaniment for riyaaz. the ideal accompaniment would be a tanpura, either a proper one or better still an electric one. riyaaz involves singing octaves with permutations and combinations. if u know stock phrases of raagas then u can arrange them into practice "paltas" which will improve speed and dexterity.
