Learn to Play > Lesson 1: Introduction to the Mrdanga

Where and how much to practice

Try to practice the mrdanga lessons every day. About 20 minutes a day will do just fine. This activity is what we will call homework. If you want to learn how to play the mrdanga, you must do your homework every day.

But don't practice the mrdanga in the temple room in front of the deities! Whatever you do before the deities should already be practiced, and ready for presentation.

So do your homework everyday (practice), but don't practice the mrdanga in the temple room.
