"Prakash teaches my 8 year old son since almost a year now. He has lot of patience with children and encourages them to play. My son was resisting learning the tabla but now he enjoys it. His fingers are playing on the dining table as well. At times he stops playing in the middle of the class but Prakash keeps indulging and encouraging him to play. He understands the moods of children. Prakash is friendly and approachable, but above all he himself plays the tabla beautifully and is a great teacher. "

"Prakash sir is the Tabla teacher I could relate to the most as he is able to adjust his teaching style with ease as per the needs of the student. While I have been Tabla from other teachers for few years before Prakash sir, a lot of concepts became clear while learning from him. He understood my engineering background and looked at ways to make me understand the engineering aspects behind sound production. As I am working professional, he understands my work pressures and demonstrates extreme flexibility with schedules and is also very patient with my lack of practice and slow progress. Thanks a lot for all your support sir. "

"Can you give me some information on Raag Khambavati, please? I've got this question in my Hindi holiday homework (3 to 4 lines)." in   Music/Vocal Music/Indian Vocal Music/Indian Classical Music

It closely resembles Raag Jhinjhoti which is far more popularly known to Indian audience. The phrase G m S with Meend from Madhyam to Shadj is Raag Vachak phrase of Khambavati. The general Aaroh of this Raag is S R m P D S' and Gandhar is only used in Aaroh in signature phrase G m S. Sometimes in Aaroh while ascending towards Tar Shadj (S') Shuddha Nishad is used like: m P N N S'.

"is there specific age to learn playing tabala or drumset" in   Music/Instrumental Music/Indian Instrumental Music

No there is no particular age, you can start learning tabla whenever you want, but obviously music is a language and the mind of children are able to learn and adapt to new languages much faster and with ease, that is why sometimes it is preferred that the musical training should start at an young age
