Congratulations to our May Student of the Month – Nitin Dhar!
Nitin Dhar is a software engineer who has been taking classes at our Manhattan location with Sejal Kukadia since August 2012.
Nitin wanted to learn tabla as a child, but did not get an opportunity to do. He fulfilled his childhood wish as an adult in New York City. His love for tabla is such that he has watched every single youtube video on Taalim School and Rhythm Riders (often multiple times). His enthusiasm for tabla is infectious.
Being a full-time professional, it can be difficult to find time to practice, but he does whatever he can, including having a pair of tabla at work to take breaks from the computer to practice – something that is good for one’s eyes and soul =)
When asked why he is so drawn to tabla, Nitin replies “I love the intricacies and it’s sound.”
Congratulations Nitin! You are a great example of how it’s never too late and there is always time to practice!
