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

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.

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.

"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’ve been a percussionist for decades and have been very fortunate to find such a great tabla instructor in the Denver area. Nabin is not just a great performer he is also an exceptional teacher. Even though my background is in rock and Latin music he has been able to help me understand the concepts of Hindustani music and rhythm and we are working towards developing a performance composed of all the major elements of a traditional tabla solo. It’s the most interesting style of music I have come across. I would imagine Nabin can teach to all skill levels and backgrounds as he has been able to tailor a program of study specifically to my abilities and even to my schedule. If you are interested I can’t recommend him enough...and you should do it! We need more tablas resounding in Colorado! (Image is of some of my tablas)"
