LEARN TABLA WITH TAALIM SCHOOL
Taalim School’s core strength lies in formal instruction in tabla – the most popular Indian percussion instrument. Guided by Pandit Divyang Vakil, Taalim School teaches Delhi, Ajrada, and Punjab gharana of tabla, in addition to contemporary classical tabla playing and Pandit Vakil’s own compositions.
Tabla instruction is based on the teaching methodology developed by Pandit Divyang Vakil, which is a modern adaptation of the guru-shishya parampara (student-teacher tradition). Teaching is customized to the needs, skill, and personality of each student. Even in a group setting, each student gets individual and targeted attention.
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.
