Rhythm House Music School.

School of tabla offers instruction in tabla in a relaxed, friendly and inclusive environment. Lessons are open to beginners, intermediate and advanced students. We offer both private as well as group classes. 

Training consists of the traditional tabla solo repertoire (peshkaar, kaida, rella, gat and tukra) in a variety of tala (rhythm cycles). Through learning to count the tala using claps and waves as well as padanth (recitation of tabla syllables) the student will progress through the traditional repertoire starting with simpler pieces and gradually moving to more advanced ones. Lessons can be designed for the specific needs of the student and can encompass such concepts as accompaniment to vocal and instrumental music, playing with cross cultural music and playing with bhajans and kirtan.
