Shreyas Iyer is a student of the tabla from a young age when the sounds of the instrument invited him to start learning. As a musician and event producer, he has organized and performed in several shows in the US and internationally. Shreyas spreads his knowledge and passion for the tabla through classes and workshops in his school Dhaa School of Music based in Phoenix, AZ. His innate passion and dedication to furthering this art form has kept him innovating and looking at different ways of using the tabla and collaborating with musicians in different genres.
Shreyas has been finding ways of incorporating tabla as an adjunct treatment modality for patients with Parkinson’s disease and for patients with a history of trauma. Shreyas is a graduate of the Caring Essentials Trauma Informed Professional Certificate and is in the process of developing a trauma informed approach to tabla playing and teaching.
