I am looking for a mridangam teacher who can teach on Skype, for my 6 year old son. He started learning last year when we were in Madras for 4 months and has been continuing over Skype. I am looking for someone who has had some experience teaching children (and has worked out methods to keep the learning interesting and fun), who will give us a lesson plan and stick to class schedules most of the time. He learns vocal too and I am dancer, myself, so I can help/give him inputs/help with his practice.
Please let us know if you know someone who can teach and is willing to teach over Skype.
Hi Padmapada: If your son is motivated to learn the Tanjore style of mridangam, the best teacher would be Parameswaran Sir of Palghat, who is a direct disciple of TK Murthy Sir and perhaps the most authentic source of Tanjore bani (as devised by Tanjore Vaidyanatha Iyerval), after Murthy Sir himself.
