The Academy

Param-Shikhar Academy is a premier Tabla school based in Suwanee, GA and was started in 2014 by our Founder, Shivprasad Kotagal and ably managed by his wife, Swapna Karambakkam.   


The Name of the Academy is a tribute to one of our Founder's cardinal Gurus, Shri K. Paramjyoti, an octogenarian virtuoso who now resides in Hyderabad, India. Our Founder sincerely believes that if he can impart the knowledge he was bestowed upon by his Guru with even a fraction of the Love and Care which he received from his Guru, his mission will be accomplished.  


The mission of the Academy is to provide world-class education in Tabla and access to invaluable resources about Tabla and Indian Classical Music to students of all ages. The Academy aims to propagate the Art of Tabla which has historically and predominantly been an oral tradition by adopting new age methods of documentation and communication. 


The Academy also has a tie-up with Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, Pune for conducting annual certification exams. (https://www.gandharvapune.org/)
