Later Amit developed a keen interest in tabla playing and started learning it under the guidance of his father, Pt. Kishor Kumar Mishra ji. As he began to devote himself entirely to tabla playing, he was both inspired and blessed by his maternal grandfather the late Tabla Maestro Padmabhushan Pt. Samta Prasad Mishra Ji . He then received advanced instruction from his Guru (teacher), the internationally acclaimed late Pt. Sharda Sahai Ji (a direct descendant of Pt. Ram Sahai ji, the founder of the Banaras Gharana).
