Nāṭyaśāstra (theatrics and dramaturgy)
Gāndharvaśāstra (गान्धर्वशास्त्र, “theory of music”).—Monier-Williams explains this term, by equating it with gāndharvakalā, i.e. “art of the Gandharvas, song, music”. Since gāndharva is often used in the epics to indicate music—the art which, according to the ancient Indian opinion, was especially practised by the celestial musicians (gandharvas)—gāndharvaśāstra in the context of Dattilam 1 obviously refers to the theoretical aspect of music, because this treatise deals with the theory of music.Source: Google Books: Dattilam: A Compendium of Ancient Indian Music
