North Indian Music
MFA students Brietta Greger and Trevor Anderies in Tabla Class
The North Indian Music MFA Specialization trains students to become fluent and skilled performers through in-depth, hands-on training under the direction of internationally esteemed faculty.

The curriculum emphasizes performance practices. Students also study the theoretical basis of North Indian classical music, as well as its cultural and historical underpinnings. Focusing heavily on vocalization and recitation of syllables (e.g. the language and grammar of tabla), students gain a deep understanding of the concepts, devices and rhythmic patterns found in North Indian classical music, building the advanced technical skills required for playing and singing different ragas and talas, as well as a comprehensive understanding of sruti and microtones.

Students also have the opportunity to learn practical skills with regard to maintaining, repairing, repairing and tuning the instruments.
