About the Instructors:
One of the few doyens of tabla that remain in Pakistan today, Ustad Khursheed Hussain hails from a family of musicians. His father, Mehboob Hussain, was a sarangi player and entrusted his friend, the great Ustad Habib Khan (also known as Baba Bibia Khan) to teach his son the art of tabla playing. Khursheed Saheb has been an employee of Radio Pakistan and has performed live with some of the greatest musicians that Pakistan has witnessed including Ustad Kabir Khan, Ustad Sharif Khan Poonchwaley, Ustad Ghulab Khan, Ustad Salamat Ali Khan, Ustad Fateh Ali Khan, Ustad Rais Khan, Mehdi Hassan, Iqbal Bano, and Farida Khanum. He is also the accompanist of choice for visiting artistes from India. He currently teaches tabla at Habib University. Yousuf Kerai and Zohaib Hussain are senior disciples of Ustad Khursheed Hussain and will be accompanying him in teaching the classes.

This class is for all ages above 5 years of age. Students at multiple levels of understanding and skill building can learn simultaneously. The class also exposes students to the wider culture of the music in which tabla is played.
