The Vidyalaya: A rare tradition of guru-shishya parampara Kallur Mahalakshmi Tabala Vidyalaya was born out of a zeal to popularize the Tabala not as a mere accompaniment but as an instrument deserving its space in a solo percussion performance. Kallur Mahalaxmi Tabala Vidyala is a familiar name in music circles. It was set up in Dharwad in 1985 and moved to Bangalore city in 1997. Guru-shishya parampara As the Founder- Principal, Pt. Kallurkar has cast the Vidyalaya in the guru-shishya parampara. He enforces a strict code of conduct on his students who range in age from as young as 5 to as elderly as 60. Students have to necessarily dress in kurta-pyjama and upon entering the school first pay their respects to Pt. Kallukar's Guruji's photo and then to him. Pt. Kallurkar is also very discerning about who he takes on as his students. He is particularly wary of parents with lackadaisical attitudes who believe that going to Tabala class is a way of “keeping children occupied”. At the same time when he sees talent, nothing stops him from taking them on under his guidance. Today there are 20 talented students who cannot afford to pay his fees, for whom Pt. Kallurkar conducts special classes gratis. His love and passion for the art form can be seen in the way he attends to his students. With careful attention to each student's need and capacity, he goads, provokes, stimulates and encourages them with his energy, artistry, and scholarship, all tinged with a great sense of humour. His involvement with his students is complete and many parents, whose children had otherwise been withdrawn and shy, have observed that there is a marked improvement in their children's confidence and communication. Curriculum and methodology His methodology of teaching includes playing, reciting and writing, all of which go into the making of a complete Tabala artiste. The Vidyalaya teaches according to the syllabi prescribed by the Karnataka State Music Education Board, Akhila Bharatha Gandharva Maha Mandal, Mumbai, Prachin Kala Kendra, Chandigarh and various other prestigious institutions. This combination of syllabi enables students to take up exams conducted by any/all of these Boards. Other events in the Vidyalaya The Vidyalaya celebrates a religious function on the occasion of Deepavali invoking the blessings of Kallur Mahalaxmi by performing Laxmi pooja. This day marks a new beginning for students who are provided with ample opportunity to perform in front of an August gathering. The Vidyalaya celebrates Guru Poornima every year honoring their Guru. On this occasion all the students irrespective of how much they have learnt, perform in the presence of their Guru and seek his blessings.
