Tabla Classes

Group classes are offered for children and adults with any level of experience.

Teaching Methods

Pandit Shantilal Shah, or Guruji, as he is affectionately known by his students, believes anyone can learn Tabla and that learning this instrument will help students for the rest of their lives.

His methodology starts with establishing good technique, a disciplined practice, and developing musical manner in each of his students.

Learning Tabla


The most fundamental aspect of playing Tabla well is proper technique. It must be established early and revisited regularly.


Tabla is an instrument which requires great patience and discipline while learning. This is a skill that translates to all areas of life.


The subtleties of playing Tabla with the right expression can only be learned through an experienced Guru.
