Read & Play: Indian Tabla Drums
An exciting new way to learn
Our three module course has been designed to introduce you to the world of Indian tabla drums. It is assumed that you have little or no previous experience of how the tabla is played or taught traditionally, and that you are self-sufficient learner who has a basic knowledge of western music notation.
Simple learning process
Each module is divided into three sections:
- Practice pieces to learn the basic strikes and sounds.
- Solo pieces to develop your skill in performing.
- Group pieces specially composed to perform alongside classroom instruments such as recorder, djembe, shaker and glockenspiel
Practice Time allows you to develop your techniques slowly and steadily with a metronome and suggested tempos. When you feel ready, have fun and Play Along with the online backing tracks.
- Play Along backing tracks for all Practice, Solo and Group pieces. There are two versions of each piece – with and without the recorded tabla.
- Scores & Parts to download (for free) and print as required
- Strikes & Sounds of techniques and notations with videos.
"The exciting and revolutionary Universal Indian Drum Notation used in this course allows students, teachers, composers and musicians to play the tabla and enjoy its rich, beautiful sounds. This breakthrough in tabla-education makes the instrument more accessible to musicians from differing backgrounds and cultures."
