Choose from tabla, mridangam, sitar or veena depending if you want to learn strings or drums.
Tablas are two drums usually played seated, whereas mridangam is a double headed drum played seated or standing. The mridangam is mostly used to accompany dance performances. The veena and sitar are both stringed instruments. The veena has less strings and therefore more simple and usually accompanies vocals.
For the drums learning happens by memorizing mantras that mimic drum sounds and to vocalize those mantras while practising. Even in one lesson anybody can learn at least one mantra. For strings one first learns the musical scale which is sung along with the instrument. Lessons cover tuning and care for the instrument.
