Student Ensembles

Regular students of the Melbourne Tabla School are invited to join a tabla ensemble with other students. These ensembles perform each year at the Melbourne Tabla School end of year concert. The concerts present tabla students in small groups playing the material they have learnt during their lessons and have proven to be a valuable and very enjoyable learning experience for everyone involved. The tabla ensembles offer students regular contact with other tabla players in promoting the development of an active tabla community here in Melbourne. Photos of previous years concerts may be viewed in the Tabla Gallery below.

A range of student ensembles may be hired for performances, ensembles available include small tabla groups for short performances as well as sitar and tabla duets. For bookings and more information contact us.
