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

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.

Nabin sir is very good and patient. He starts from the fundamentals and works his way up. One gets a good understanding of tabla playing and skills.
Sunil Oliver
Nabinji is a great Tabla player himself and a great teacher. He is a gifted teacher who is able to work with students at various levels of exposure to Tabla and is able to explain the concepts in a clear easy to learn style. I have been his student for a while now and am grateful to have a teacher like him who makes learning Tabla fun. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning Tabla, whether a newbie OR a experience player wanting to improve the skills.

I have been teaching Tabla for the last 13 years in Chicago, New Jersey, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

The initial few years of Tabla is focused on proper hand/finger placement and technique. Starting with few simple letters and building them into phrases, sentences, and full compositions. I try to exposure students to the language of the music. Therefore, I give students a general framework and ask them to compose themselves. As I guide them through the process, this exercise empowers students to create on their own and strengthen their logical thinking process.

Once students are able to produce desired sounds and play certain compositions in a Tabla solo repertoire, I introduce accompaniment material which can practically be applied when performing with singers, instrumentalists, and dancers.

Along the way, I share historical information on the art as well as recommend resources such as books, recordings, and websites for a well-rounded learning experience.

"I am honored to be learning from Pandit Nabinji. He is one of the best tabla players. His vast knowledge, expertise, dexterity in playing combined with patience and pleasant personality is a rare and wonderful combination. Each class is combination of technique, wisdom, and soul soothing in an otherwise chaotic and stressful world. I eagerly looked forward to my weekly class. I have always wanted to learn tabla and it took me 35 years to find an excellent teacher and fulfill my dreams!. Many more years with Nabinji on this incredible journey.
Cheers,

"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."
