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.

I will definitely be expanding my accordion skills & of music theory . I’ll also be adding some 😎 Jazz Standards to my repertoire ☺️.
Kelly S.
Karen was not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.

"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 helped me realize one of my dreams of being able to play Indian percussion instruments. Being an absolute beginner, helped with my instrument purchase and started me on the basic notes and rhythm patterns. Under his direction, I maintained steady practice habits and was able to progress quite well in a relatively short amount of time.

Nabin ji has a structured curriculum and overlays one simple concept on another to deal with complex topics. Time signatures in Indian music can be tricky and with Nabin’s help I was able to understand the nuances of many different taals over time.

The lessons and one-on-one interaction (pre-pandemic) were great. Material presented was simple and easy to understand and practice at home. Nabin ji certainly had the patience to deal with a complete beginner like me which really helped. :)"
