This 6-week class serves as an introduction to the tabla, the percussion instruments used in Hindustani Classical music. These distinct and expressive drums, used to accompany performances of classical, light classical, folk and devotional song styles of Northern India, have their own expansive collection of solo repertoire. This class is open to everyone; no musical experience is required, only an open mind and the willingness to try something new!
Classes will be held at Art Share on Sunday at 5pm.
Parking is available in the lot at 321 S. Hewitt Street (across from Art Share).
$95 Registration Fee - A limited number of drums are available for classroom use, and students are encouraged to bring their own drums.
