Tabla Lessons

Swapan Chaudhuri lessons: Swapan Chaudhuri is a member of the Lucknow Gharana. I was his private student during the 1990s. I flew from in Colorado, and later from Virginia, to California for lessons. The Swapan Chaudhuri lesson videos below also are (or will be) available along with a large amount of material at the Swapan Chaudhuri Digital Library: www.ScTablaLibrary.org

Vishal Nagar lessons: Vishal Nagar is a member of the Delhi gharana. I created the videos below in 2006 in tabla classes that Vishal gave when he was in Nashville, where I then lived, for concerts.
