WHAT WE TEACH
Tabla
The Tabla consists of a set of two drums played with both hands and is the most popular percussion instrument from the Indian subcontinent. 

The smaller drum, played with the left hand, sometimes called dayan, is correctly called the "tabla." It is made from a conical piece of mostly teak and rose wood hollowed out to approximately half of its total depth..

The larger drum, played with the left hand, is called bayan or duggi. The bayan may be made of any of a number of materials. Brass is the most common. The bayan has a much deeper bass tone.

Both drum shells are covered with a head constructed from goat skin. The skins of both drums also have an inner circle on the head referred to as the syahi. This is constructed using multiple layers of a paste made from starch (rice or wheat) mixed with a black powder of various origins. 

Performers Collective provides a well-furnished class room equipped with excellent quality instruments for the lessons.

Learners as young as 6 yrs old may join Performers Collective for lessons on the Tabla.
Only group lessons are available on this instrument.
