An introductory set of 10 online lessons that can be downloaded straight to your device.

This step-by-step downloadable Tabla advanced course is perfect for those who feel comfortable with the material in the intermediate course and now wish to take their Tabla learning to the next level.

The course is broken down into 10 lessons and contains over 6 hours of instructional material


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.
