A volunteer group to learn tabla playing has been formed at BAPS Harimandir in Fall River, MA, off Exit 7 Interstate Hwy 195. In the next few months, BAPS Harimandir will move to Sharon, MA, at a state-of-the-art location off Interstate Hwy 495 and Route 1, near Foxborough Stadium.

The instructor is a teacher/learner/engineer/traveller/philosopher with a passion for both Global, Indian and Western music, especially North Hindustani music, art,culture,languages and spirituality.

The group has met three times and have had explolatory and planning sessions to develop a path and set educational goals. It is a basic level learning situation with no financial cost and open to those with a set of tabla. The sessions will be in English for most part with the usage of other languages, as needed for cross-cultural experience.

As a pilot set-up, the group plans to meet every Sunday from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm and the size will be set at 12-16 people (the facility and the educational goals are limiting factors).

While the participants are from the Harmandir and BAPS organization, a suggestion was made to invite and open it the surrounding community and to all ages, while the slots are open on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you have an interest, then email The first Sunday in August is the time when the group will take off in tabla palying at full speed.
