When you register, please let us know if you need a harmonium to use in the workshop,
or if you can bring your own harmonium (or keyboard)
Join Shana Aisenberg for an introduction to playing the harmonium for accompanying your chanting practice. Shana will teach basics of the Indian Sargam system, an intuitive way of understanding how to play kirtan melodies, and also relate this system to western music, for those who already know note names.
Shana will then teach everyone to play a chant, possibly two chants if there’s time. There will be 2 or 3 harmoniums available for use during the workshop, if you don’t have your own instrument.
