It's Simple and Easy to Follow
The advanced course begins by explaining the very foundation of solo music, Vilambit Tin Taal. Every lesson gives the student a detailed insight into a traditional composition of the solo Tabla including the complex Peshkar and fast Rela. The focus moves to some less popular but nevertheless important rhythms. The very final lesson of the course gives the student the opportunity to make practical use of the rhythms he or she has learnt during the courses and accompany some pre-recorded songs that were sung live on screen by Sulekh.
It's designed for everyone
Each lesson is clearly structured so that you'll be able to re-cap on the previous lesson, learn new material as set out in the aims of the lesson and then watch how the compositions that you played in that lesson are presented professionally.
