About Course

Tabla is a musical instrument, a pair of drums that differ in size and shape. Besides being used to accompany dance, music and vocals, it is also a solo instrument. It is often perceived that learning to play Tabla is not everyone’s cup of tea. However, we at Mittsure believe that with practice and right guidance, one can acquire this skill easily.

All you need is to learn the techniques in a logical way, for e.g., using palms and fingers to create right rhythms and sounds in different configurations. It is extremely important to learn these basics before you become a professional player.

Tabla is not just a musical instrument played for fun and entertainment. It entails numerous benefits, such as:

1. Playing the Tabla can improve listening skills
