Nabin Shrestha, a notable face amongst the Coloradans, is a classical tabla virtuoso. His consistently brilliant and exciting performances have established him as a prominent percussionist in Nepal and the US. He has a deep understanding of different traditional styles of tabla playing and tonal quality. This makes him particularly capable of collaborating seamlessly with musicians and dancers from different genres of music.
Tabla Lessons with Nabin
Not all students have the same goal or intention while learning Tabla. Some are interested in the vast repertoire of Tabla traditions, some want to master all the Talas(Rhythmic Cycles), and some want to learn to accompany Kirtan, Bhajan, and songs. In contrast, others want to study the language of Tabla to be a better drummer, percussionist or a musician.

Nabin is a very accomplished artist who has mastered the art of tabla. I find it very impressive that while being a busy performer he also finds the time to put his heart and soul into teaching. He has is a very good teacher with a very organized approach.
“I am honored to be learning from Pandit Nabinji. He is one of the best tabla players. His vast knowledge, expertise, dexterity in playing combined with patience and pleasant personality is a rare and wonderful combination. Each class is combination of technique, wisdom, and soul soothing in an otherwise chaotic and stressful world. I eagerly looked forward to my weekly class. I have always wanted to learn tabla and it took me 35 years to find an excellent teacher and fulfill my dreams!. Many more years with Nabinji on this incredible journey.
As a continuing tabla student, having started the study of tabla and mridangam a while back, I am so happy to have found Nabin. Nabin Shrestha is a busy performing artist as well as a top-notch instructor. On the first lesson Nabin knew exactly where I was at and what I needed to work on. Nabin as a teacher challenges me to the point where I can’t keep up, then instead of letting me throw my tablas under a steam-roller, he backs it up a little bit and allows me to catch up.
