In these workshops, students explore special topics of raga (melody)
and tala (rhythm) and their expressive potential on the Sitar.
Compositions and improvisation are taught in the style of Acharya Roop Verma
by one of his senior students, Tomek Regulski. Participants receive
individual guidance on proper technique, take part in analytical
listening, and discuss the elements of good practice. Suitable for
beginning and intermediate Sitar students.
Tomek Regulski is a composer, sitarist and meditation teacher. As a
sitarist, he received his foundational training in the style of the
Maihar Gharana from the late Acharya Roop Verma and continues his
studies with Arjun Verma and Pandit Krishna Bhatt. Additionally, he is a
vocal student of Ramakant and Umakant Gundecha, masters of the
Dagarbani tradition of dhrupad singing. Tomek performs sitar in
the classical concert setting as well as for yoga and meditation. He is
on the faculty of the East-West School of Music at Ananda Ashram, where
he teaches monthly sitar classes.
