Private Tabla Teacher

I teach tabla in the Hindustani Classical style, focusing on traditional tabla solo as a means to develop technique, vocabulary, and improvisation. My background is primarily in the Lucknow Gharana, taught to me by my teachers Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri and Randy Gloss of California Institute of the Arts, from which I received my Master's Degree in North Indian Classical Music.

It is my recommendation to take lessons in 1-hour increments per week.

I teach ALL levels!! BEGINNING/INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED
In my experience, tabla is an easily accessible instrument to beginners. The sounds, its built-in language, and the way the compositions are built will ensure that you are a tabla player by the end of the first 2-hours.

**Instruments are also relatively affordable compared to most other instruments. A student model set can range from $200 - $400, whereas a Professional tabla set ranges from $500-$800.

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.
