This course will teach you the fundamentals of the traditional Indian drum, Tabla.

Traditionally this knowledge was only attained by studying with a guru. Now we are bringing the guru to your fingertips, to get you playing in weeks, not years.

Tabla is played in Solo or Accompaniment to singers of Classical, Bollywood, Ghazal, Bhajans, Qawaalis and more.
The instruments the Tabla typically accompanies are usually from the Classical realms with the likes of Sitar, Sarod, Bansuri and Santoor.
