ACHF Cultural Heritage
A. Pavan will introduce traditional compositions from the North Indian Tabla repertoire to Minnesota audiences through four workshops and a public concert. The delivered value of the public concert and workshops will be assessed through written and oral surveys at the end of each event, collating and analyzing the results at the end of the project. See narrative for details of the evaluation process. 2: To promote the traditional art of Tabla, A. Pavan will record 50 video lessons for the Tabla and write an instructional booklet and publish online. The video lessons and instructional book’s efficacy will be assessed via responses from students, professional Tabla masters, and reviews and comments made directly to me or online, and via oral and written surveys at the four Tabla workshops.
Presented four workshops and a public performance introducing students and audience to a variety of traditional Tabla compositions from March 2015 to May 2016. A written survey was handed to the workshop students and to the concert audience. We designed the surveys with ten questions, to provide insightful feedback on the success of each event. The questions related to whether the material was sufficiently deep/broad, the content met the audience expectations, suggestions for next workshops, the quality of instruction, performance, sound, stage and publicity. Survey results were analyzed by the team for each event and the project as a whole. 2: Produced 50 Lessons for Tabla consisting of 50 online videos with detailed notes and published a booklet containing notes for all 50 lessons. A written survey was handed to several practitioners of the art of Tabla including senior Maestros and students of different skills (advanced, intermediate and beginner) spanning age groups, genders and ethnicities. This survey had twelve questions, to gauge the quality of the videos and notes. The questions related to whether the material was sufficiently deep/broad, the quality of video, sound, performance and notes. Survey results were analyzed by the team for the project as a whole.
