Yes, we would want you to buy a Tabla set as early as possible after joining a class, because you will need to regularly practice lessons taught in the class on your Tabla set at home . We also sell Tabla sets; however, it is not mandatory to buy a set from us.
A Tabla set will be provided during the class till the time you buy your own set, after which you will need to bring your own Tabla set to the class. Tabla rental is also available for $20 per week but only for a limited time.
What are your policies regarding missed class, unscheduled or storm closure
In case a student misses a class, make-up classes will not be offered. However, there could be exceptions to this - with regard to a student missing due to an emergency situation or student suffering from a protracted illness, up to only one lesson per session will be made up, on our preference.
If a class is canceled due to weather or other circumstances we will credit this class towards the next session.
