I can teach Tabla, Jori and pakhawaj(Punjab Gharana) in a mixed way of mordern and traditional way via online/offline. I use to suggest syllabus according to the need of the student as everyone has his/her own potential or understanding abilities. I have a vast range of compositions from Punjab Gharana. My training includes every aspect of Tabla, Jori & Pakhawaj either theoritical or practical. I work strongly on riyaz methodology, composition build up and expansion.

Perfect Teacher

Seldom do I give 5 stars; however, Ustad Gian Singh Ji is well deserving of the rating. Ustad Ji presents with a very pleasant personality and is very engaged in ensuring learning is happening.

I have been learning Mridang and Jori from Ustad Ji and in a very short amount of time, I have made significant strides. Ustad Ji makes even the most advanced concepts simple to learn and invests heavily in my success. I highly recommend Ustad Ji.

A patient and knowledgeable teacher

Ustad Gian Singh commands a comprehensive repertoire in Jori, Tabla and Mirdangam. A rare teacher who is able to cater class for the individualistic needs of the student. His ability to explain the nuances of this fine art highlight his deep understanding and grasp of his instruments.

In summary he is the goto teacher for Jori and complex rhythm patterns and I could not recommended him highly enough.

A Unique resource to learn Percussion....

I am learning tabla & Jori from him. He has a very comprehensive syllabus for helping students to learn and practice in all aspects. The playing and teaching quality of tutor himself is also of a very high order. The tutor is exceptionally talented in his field, he tries to mix both the conventional and modern teaching techniques to explain the things. This helps the student learn faster and quicker in comparison to the other tutors who try to teach by only conventional ways.
