Tabla Drum Classes (New York, New Jersey & More)

Tabla Circle Drum Classes in New York

Taalim School offers group and private classes in the Indian hand drum tabla in over 15 locations across New York (Manhattan, Brooklyn, and more), New Jersey (north, central, and south), Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.  All tabla instruction is in the teaching methodology developed by Pandit Divyang Vakil, which is based on the Delhi, Ajrada, and Punjab gharana of tabla, in addition to contemporary classical tabla playing and Pandit Vakil’s own compositions.

No previous experience with Indian music and/or drumming is required.  Learning tabla and Indian rhythm can add depth and open new avenues of creativity within one’s own playing for percussionists and drummers of different drums, such as cajon, djembe, and drum kit.
