Description
About the Book

The Tabla is the most popular Percussion instrument of North India. Each sound on the Table has an onomatopoetic syllable to represent it. Therefore, the Tabla player must learn to speak a new language in addition to playing. Syllables are, in fact, the mode teaching and communicating Tabla material. They help the student to understand the sound to be produced and aid memorization of compositions.

There are many books available on the subject of Table and writers have written, focusing their own areas.

No doubt, these books are useful for students, but some specific terms are left unexplained viz. Controversy in technical words and some specific clarifications in practical/experimental aspect, which is very essential for the students. Proper knowledge of Gharana (style) is very important.
