Sam has been teaching our son Sam for a year now. He is an enthusiastic, focused and motivating instructor. What our son loves about Sam is that he is teaching him to play drums through the music that our son loves and relates to. This makes it that much more "fun" to learn.

Sam is always on time, very communicative, professional, passionate about drums and great with kids! We highly recommend Sam as an instructor.

Sam is wonderful drum instructor. He is very friendly and my teen son feels very comfortable around him. They worked for several months on drums and Sam even took time to listen to my son's DJ music production. Sam gave him his opinion and suggestions for improvements. We are very happy with how fast my son began to play drums only after the start of a few lessons. We highly recommend him!!!

Private Tabla Teacher

Nabin is one of the best Tabla players in the US. He has been performing and teaching for the past 25 years. Nabin is able to customize lessons based on interest, age, and learning ability of the students. Please check out some of the reviews for Nabin Shreshtha Tabla lessons of Google to see what current students have to say about his teaching techniques.

Nabin, a renowned face amongst the Coloradans is a classical tabla virtuoso of the highest order. His consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as one of the prominent musicians in his own country, Nepal but gained him worldwide fame. His deep understanding of different traditional styles of tabla playing, tonal quality, clarity and ability to collaborate with different genres of music makes him different from regular percussionists and it’s no surprise that he’s the favorite accompanist for many musicians and dancers.

Started my class six months ago and I must say a brilliant tabla instructor I could ever ask for. His way of teaching is just fabulous. He always keeps in mind how the class can be made interesting and gives the same. I am so fortunate that I am learning from him.

I started taking lessons from Nabin from the age of 12 till the age of 19. I was encouraged by my father to take lessons from him as he saw it as a great opportunity. At first, I was not the most enthusiastic about it since tabla was an instrument I had never heard about. After taking lessons from him, not only did I fall in love with tabla, but I became obsessed with it. Nabin teaches tabla in such a way that it is extremely difficult to not be intrigued by it. He is the most patient teacher and will teach you in a personalized manner. It does not matter who you are, what your skill level is, if there is anyone that can teach you the tabla in the most complete way, it's him. Tabla is a difficult instrument to master. Thus, it is important that you find a teacher that is understanding, patient, and works with you carefully to master the smallest details. Nabin is that person. He never gets frustrated with his students and encourages them in every part of the journey.

It's not just tabla skills you will gain from Nabin. You will gain appreciation for music, the ability to become more confident in yourself, the desire to become a hard worker, and gain numerous valuable life lessons as I have. He is the greatest teacher I have had without a question and there is no other guru I would recommend.

Online Tabla Teacher

Hello,
Thank you for visiting my profile.
I started learning Tabla when I was 5 and still remember vividly when mum took me to classes 3 times a week for several hours. I used to sit, listen and play with my classmates during those hours and that experience has left an indelible mark. My fingers are 'hard-wired' to play and create sounds on the tabla. Every teacher will tell you, in order to play properly and create perfect sounds, everyday practice is the essential component.

Currently, I teach 17 students at BAPS temple in Edison and have been teaching there for the last 6 years.
I also have 3 students who visit my home weekly.

Please contact me for additional information.
Thank you.

About Dhwani

Tabla is a language which a tabla performer conveys with crisp, clear sounds for the audience to listen to and feel at one with. Essentially, the rhythm of the universe should resonate when a shishiya (student) or guru (teacher) play tabla either for a crowd or in a room. I learned tabla from gur

Online Tabla Teacher

Even though,my principal mode of expression in music will always be the North Indian classical percussion 'tabla', I have been very fortunate to have been able to do my undergrad and Masters in Music from SOAS,University of London and Berklee College of Music respectively. All of this musical exposure has not only helped in expressing myself using those other musical influences but it has also helped me in being able to communicate as a tutor more effectively.

I firmly believe that it is absolutely essential to get the basics right before moving/rushing on to anything further. i encourage my students to question things rather than simply to follow and reproduce. Since Indian Classical music is an oral tradition, it is important to recite the rhythmic phrases/syllables vocally before learning how to reproduce them on the instrument.  Teaching is a process in which both the student and the teacher can learn as opposed to just a one-way process. Mutual understanding is necessary to ...
