Mridanga (Drum) Lessons - Level Two

After a successful two-month beginners mridanga course, the Toronto Hare Krishna Temple is very pleased to announce the next level of the two-month course - "Mridanga Course for Intermediates". A student should have completed the beginners course or at least have some basic knowledge of mridanga prior to taking this course as it is a prerequisite. The start date for the course and other particulars are mentioned below

This course will be taught by our resident devotee – Gopal Prabhu, a young, enthusiastic and energetic devotee who studied mridanga among other subjects in Gurukula in Vrindavan, India.

This course will build upon the basics learned in the Beginners Course and enable a student to play mridanga at a basic level in the Kirtan. This course will still be very valuable for mridanga players of others levels to perfect their technique and playing.
