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 T.

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 guru Vithal Pawar in Ahmedabad starting at age 5 and performed routinely at every gurupurnima in front of 50+ students.
After moving to USA, I have performed at various temples, garba and even at high school talent show! Currently I am focused on teaching 17 students at BAPS temple every weekend and growing a passion for tabla and music in each student.

Whether it be accompanying singers for devotional or hindi songs or a classical solo, a strong base knowledge of beats and rhythms is essential for a good performance. Slowly, a student learns by listening to their creation and enjoying the music in their soul. Creativity flows naturally in their fingers and mind when the ‘light’ is turned on; realizing “I get it!”.

The utmost gurudakshina for a guru is that their student surpasses them and makes them immensely proud. A guru’s responsibility and duty is to give all knowledge to their students.
