About the Course

Students who would enroll in this Banaras style Gharana Tabla course will be exposed to beginner, intermediate and advanced lessons in Tabla. The application of the theoretical techniques will be discussed in these online sessions where the enrolled students will be learning Tabla extensively on advanced theme and variation based compositions: Kaidas & Relas and fixed compositions such as Tukras, Gats, Parans, and Chakradar. Students will also learn How to make a Tihai by learning tabla-based formulae and other Rhythm exercises on microbeats to develop a command over laya. Students completing this course will be able to perform in front of an audience after regular practice and learning with commitment.

Advanced compositions will be taught on Teental (16 beats), Jhaptaal (10 beats), and Rupak (7 beats). Students will get guidance on how to play a Tabla solo step by step with the lehra accompaniment on Harmonium or Sarangi. Also, I will share my experience on how to accompany with Instrumental and Vocal in Hindusthani Classical, Semi - Classical, Light Music (Ghazal, Bhajan, Regional songs etc) and Experimental Fusion Music (with grooves). Apart from teaching compositions, applications will be taught. Practising Five Different Tempos in Teentaal, Rupak and Jhaptaal. Single (1), 1.5 times, Double (2), 3 times & Chaugun (4 times). Students will learn how to make a Tihai along with some complex rhythm exercises on Microbeats and Three Jatis (finger counts of the beat) out of Five: Tisrajati (3), Chatusrajati (4) & Khandajati (5) and will also learn how to fit a Jhaptaal composition in Teentaal.

About the teacher: The accompanist has to understand the psyche of the artiste as well as the requirement of the moment and accordingly give either sub dent support or one to one dialogue or absolutely thrilling display of his talent. Prangopal Bandopadhyay and his Tabla have these entire characteristics in abundance. An ardent admirer of the art of sangaat, the young Tabla player Sri Prangopal Bandopadhyay was born in 1979 and is the son & disciple of the renowned Tabla Maestro Pandit Anandagopal Bandopadhyay of Banaras Gharana. He was born and brought up within the walks of rhythm. He has started his initial training from his illustrious father at the age of four and continued his talim till today. He has every quality to establish himself as a very promising classical Tabla player in the next 21st century. Prangopal has already earned appreciation from music lovers as well as reputed musicians for his brilliant solo performance with his father and his own, also at many prestigious music conferences. He has a bright promising future ahead. Within a short period, he has already gained an appreciation for his auspicious solo performance and accompaniment with some of the elegant music personalities. He is now a b-high grade regular artist in All India Radio and Doordarshan. He graduated in music in 2002 and stood first in his class while completing his M.A. in Music from the Rabindra Bharati University (Kolkata) in the year 2003. In 2020 he had been awarded the Akhil Bharatiya Pratibha Puraskar (National Award) by the Art & Cultural Trust of India.
