Multicultural Musician

Churchville says he has accepted that he can never be a "true" Indian tabla player. But he believes the confidence he gained from his studies has made him a good all-around player. "Indian music, and more specifically tabla drumming, is so vast and can be adapted in so many ways that I do not worry about what I'm unable to do," he says. He was honored when, after playing for an Indian audience of about 300 at a U-M event, he was approached by an elderly woman who said, "Thank you for dedicating yourself to learning our culture so well."
