(click on the image to the left to listen to Shivam play tabla)

Shivam Kamat is 10 years old and has been taking tabla classes for the last two and a half years. His interest in music, especially in tabla, was noticed right from a very young age. At that time, during regular temple visits, he would eagerly watch tabla players and would try out the instrument whenever he got the chance.

Shivam is a good listener and practices every day.  Apart from music and tabla, he is very fond of outdoor sports and is active in soccer and tennis lessons and leagues.

Shivam learns from Taalim School faculty member Jin Won in Edison, NJ.

Here is Shivam performing at the 2012 Taalim School Winter Recital with his two classmates, Amog and Vedaant.
