TablaLab Riyaz App
App for iPad, released 2 Feb 2013
This is a bol / phrase trainer for the Indian tabla.
Riyaz version 2 update is now available. Click here to see the new features list.
“As a tabla player myself, it became apparent to me that it would be useful to have an app which could throw out phrases for me to repeat, focussing on timing and clarity. I became aware that my practice generally focusses on one composition at a time and rarely do I try to mix up phrases. This app aims to give the player a challenge in developing a theme by repeating or improvising on a sequence of phrases as the app calls them out, in a call and return style.”
You can try the app for yourself in Flash here*. Please let me know if you have ideas to refine or improve this app for the next release.
*it’s Flash ..so this demo won’t work on a real iPad.
