Singh’s School of Music was established by celebrated tabla player and BEMAC artist Ravikesh Singh, in 2003. With locations in Forest Lake, Brisbane and Gold Coast, it has been at the forefront of developing new teaching methods for students to progress into professional music careers.
Fijian born Ravikesh Singh came to Australia when he was 3 years old and started his career at the same age playing dholak (traditional/religious music) in small house concerts with local musicians in Brisbane. Ravikesh’s father supported his music career from a very early age taking the young boy to concerts and music lessons with C Hanuman. By the age of ten, Ravikesh was learning the tabla and percussion instruments with tuition from Sukhvinder Singh, Alpesh Vaitha, Sunil Kumar De and Pt Ishwar Lal Misra.
Ravikesh travelled to Varanasi in India to undergo formal studies in the playing of the Benares Gharana style of tabla. Ravikesh’s musical inspiration comes from his gurus and listening to many different genres of music. He is a versatile musician involved in numerous Indian Classical as well as contemporary fusion projects in Australia and India.
Tickets are $20 full price and $15 concession.
