About the Course

The classes deal with the technical aspects of playing the Tabla. The major feature is the transition from playing bols or syllables on the tabla to playing compositions on different beat cycles. It covers the following:

  • ‘Shuruwaat’ or the ‘beginning’ in solo tabla playing
  • ‘Kaida’ or the application of bol while playing the tabla
  • ‘Rela’ practice of playing bols in speed 
  • ‘Tukra’ played at the end of a solo performance
  • ‘Chakradar’ rendering of bols on the tabla in a cyclical pattern
  • ‘Gat’ provides students scope for interpretations and improvisations
  • Basic rhythm exercises for command over the ‘laya’

The above compositions are played in fixed patterns of rhythm which are either a Teentaal (16 beats), Jhaptaal (10 beats), Dadra (6 beats), Keherwa (8 beats), or Rupak (7 beats). By the end of this course, students will be well versed with the basics of tabla playing, elementary compositions, and playing these compositions as per rhythm cycles or taals.

About the Teacher: Music is in his genes. Born to an acclaimed Harmonium Maestro Pandit Jyoti Goho, Sourabh entered the world of music at the tender age of five.
