About the Course

These classes will introduce students to the basics of Tabla playing in a step-by-step way. The following concepts will be covered:

  • Basics of Tabla, counting, reciting, and understanding of different taal or rhythm cycles
  • Introduction to the grammar of Tabla
  • Basics of writing and interpreting notations 
  • Finger techniques, sound development, and rhythm development techniques
  • Time signatures for bhajans, ghazals, or film songs to practice accompaniment
  • Familiarity with the Ragas to play in accompaniment with Harmonium and Sarangi
  • Dadra, Kaharwa, Teen Taal, Rupak taal and their rhythm patterns
  • An understanding to follow 6 and 8-beat rhythmic cycles, enabling students to play songs on the tabla

About the Teacher: Alpesh can easily be identified as someone who was born to excel in playing the Tabla. As with any maestro, Alpesh’s inclination toward mastering the Tabla began at an early age. 

He evolved into an exceptional Tabla player after undergoing training under the guidance of Guru Shri Sudhirkumar Saxena. The training adhering to the 'Guru-Shishya Parampara' or the teacher and disciple tradition, ensured Alpesh went through the rigors of training, residing with his master. The detailed musical education paved the way for him to successfully graduate with a master’s in music. 

His dedication to music saw him earn a scholarship from Northampton University in the UK to study fusion music. Alpesh served a few years as faculty teaching Tabla to primary and elementary level students in the UK. 

He then made a comeback to India to start his training academy named Sanmuk Music Education, training in Indian classical music and western instrumental music. Alpesh has traveled extensively, performing and winning accolades for his exceptional command over Tabla.
