Kids Music Class with Tabla (Indian Drums) on Peninsula

Kids Music Class with Tabla (Indian Drums) on Peninsula

Join Robin Sukhadia and Neelanjana Banerjee for another fun oriented informal Tabla music workshop specially designed for young children between the ages of 2 1/2 – 6 years.   Robin will introduce children to traditional Indian rhythms and the percussive language of Tabla and sing along with kids to have them learn the rhythms, followed by a simple Tabla lesson during which each child will be able to play Tablas provided for the workshop participants.   Neelanjana will read a story and the children will bring the story to life and dramatize it by making different sounds on Tablas.  The workshop will end with dancing to Tabla rhythms.   Props such as scarves may be used to add in the fun!

Kids who love to bang would get a real ‘bang’ out of this class, be creative with different sounds, and have a unique musical experience!  No previous experience necessary.  Open to all music loving kids.   At least one parent should attend.

Two sessions, each lasting 50 minutes, will be offered.  The cost is $20 per child.
