During this intensive hands-on workshop, participants will learn tabla in the tradition of the Benares (Varanasi) gharana. The workshop is open to all levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). The schedule includes daily group practice sessions, group classes, and two listening/repertoire sessions. Classes are scheduled during the daytime. Students will live and breathe tabla for the duration of the workshop!

Exponent of the Benares gharana and disciple of the legendary Pandit Sharda Sahai, Shawn Mativetsky is a highly sought-after tabla performer and educator.

Tuition is 250$ and is due by June 1, 2013. Students must provide their own tabla. If you don’t already own a set, please contact Shawn, and he will be happy to assist you.
