Beginner Harmonium Workshop

 —  —

Elly's Meditation Center, 12 5th St., Hazlet, NJ 07734

If you have ever wanted to learn to play harmonium, lead a Kirtan Chant, or just sink more deeply into your devotional yoga practice, then drop in for this sweet exploration of harmonium and chant with Mirabai Moon. In this workshop you will learn the basic mechanics of how to work a harmonium, an acoustic organ that is frequently used to play kirtan music. Harmoniums make a beautiful drone sound, like an OM, created by the movement of air through reeds when you pump the bellows. It’s an AUMazing meditation tool! You will learn four or five very simple kirtan chants. These chants will be beginner friendly, so you can get started chanting while playing the harmonium right away with confidence and ease. You will be given chant sheets to bring home with you, so you can continue to practice your newly acquired skills at home. Don’t have a harmonium? Don’t worry! Mirabai will have extra harmoniums on hand and even some for sale after the workshop if you would like to take one home with you.
