As Ustad Zakir Hussain says in his Foreword in the book, there is a lack of definitive, uniform methodology in the teaching of tabla. Author Sadanand Naimpalli, himself one of the finest maestros in the country today, takes up the challenge in Theory and Practice of Tabla for students of tabla every where. His book will make a student appreciate fully the language of one of the most versatile percussion instruments in the world –its grammar, aesthetics, its powerful idioms and the sheer poetry and sophistication when handled by a competent player. The book is in two parts. Part One deals with theory—history and terminology of tabla. Part Two deals with practice—taals and bols. The book presents a comprehensive view of all the different schools and will be useful to beginners and trained students alike.
