Harmonium, Sanskrit, & Rhythm 101

 

with Dani Leah Strauss and Ros Schwartz

Sunday, October 29, 2017

Join our weekly kirtan leaders for a workshop that will introduce you to the principles of playing the harmonium and tips on how and what to practice as you get started or deepen your practice. If you pre-register we’ll do our best to have a harmonium for you to use during the workshop, but encourage you to bring your own if you have one. Beginners and those with some experience are welcome to join. Also, we’ll take you through the Sanskrit alphabet and help you hone your pronunciation skills.

9:00-10:15 Intro to the instrument and how to play

10:30-12:30 Yoga with Live Music

12:30-1:30 Lunch

1:30-2:15 Sanskrit Pronunciation

2:15-3:45 Learn to play two simple chants. We’ll share a little of our experience around how to practice and how to potentially lead chants if that’s of interest to you.

Sliding Scale $60-120

Register by emailing Dani – dani.leah.strauss@gmail.com or Ros – ros.schwartz@gmail.com .

If you’d like to reserve a harmonium, please pre-register so we can accommodate.
