I've been playing tabla professionally for 25 years. I've trained with the best tabla teachers in India. I've taught drum kit/ drum line for over 20 years. I strive to get to know what my students want to get out of their lessons and where they want to be and teach a strong foundation of Indian classical music. I'm a compassionate person with much experience. I can also help my students obtain a tabla set.

Private Tabla Teacher

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.

Private 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

"To attempt to put my experience with Nabin into words... very difficult! As a professional musician but a new tabla student, he knew how to begin with me and what standards to hold me to. I enjoyed how he set up the classes, we would would play together almost the entire time, focusing on several new or reviewed patterns. He would stop and give me points to focus on and continue. This approach allowed for so much memorization and focus on what would create a better result for me. Learning this instrument has literally changed my focus and grown my mind. When we were not playing he would be generous in his time by talking with me about his vast experiences as a musician and person in this world. With many things to share, Nabin connects with his students and is present in the moment from the first note to the last "see you next week". Although I have moved across the world, I will still continue to take online lessons with Nabin. I would and have highly recommended him as a wonderful tabla teacher for any and all levels."

"As a continuing tabla student, having started the study of tabla and mridangam a while back, I am so happy to have found Nabin. Nabin Shrestha is a busy performing artist as well as a top-notch instructor. On the first lesson Nabin knew exactly where I was at and what I needed to work on. Nabin as a teacher challenges me to the point where I can’t keep up, then instead of letting me throw my tablas under a steam-roller, he backs it up a little bit and allows me to catch up. Nabin’s prolific mastery of tabla includes a vast repertoire of traditional and original compositions, endless variations of these compositions, thorough knowledge and application of a variety of styles and techniques, as well as the ability to transmit as much of this as a diligent student can assimilate. Nabin is extraordinarily patient as I struggle with basic concepts like how to count to three. Joking aside, Nabin is a top notch performer and instructor and I would highly recommend him to anyone who seriously desires to learn this art. Thank you Nabin for being so generous and taking the time to share with me the poetry that is the art of tabla!"

"Nabin Shrestha is an exceptional teacher of the tabla. He is a great choice for learning this profound art- form for all ages and all walks of life. On a personal level I have found him to be very focused in his teaching style but also very patient and very process oriented - which is the kind of teacher I need seeing how I just do this for “fun.” For those who want to learn this art as more of a career path my feeling is that Nabin would also be exceptional because of both his diligence and enthusiasm to classical Indian music. I have also known that Nabin is open minded to other approaches as he has collaborated with other musicians of the “rock” genre, etc. So if you are looking for a table teacher that has a strong creative side Nabin is the man."

"I started taking classes with Nabinji beginning of 2020 and it has been such a great experience. He has wealth of knowledge in this field and it shows when he teaches his students. He is very methodical and emphasizes on getting the basics right which helps in the long run.
I would highly recommend Nabinji to anyone who is planning to give tabla a try and to those who need to take there skills to the next level."
