Learn to Play Harmonium

An Open Level Retreat

Seth Lieberman
Tuition: $575

Join us for this very unique, in-person opportunity to study harmonium, music and mantra in a small, supportive, group learning environment. This course is designed for those who already have some basic knowledge of the harmonium or have completed an Intro course with Seth. Building on fundamentals skills, these classes will immerse students more deeply in a study of music, playing the harmonium, leading kirtan, and Bhakti Yoga, one of the Four Paths of Yoga in Swami Sivananda’s Yoga of Synthesis.

These classes offer students an opportunity to grow technically through playing the harmonium and leading kirtan, and make meaningful connections with others on this path. Students share their questions and progress, and receive positive feedback and encouragement from Seth and their fellow participants in this very interactive and engaging learning environment.

What you’ll learn:

  • New harmonium playing techniques
  • Keyboard skills, music theory and the foundations of music
  • Developing your voice through practical exercise and deep listening
  • Kirtan leadership skills and singing with confidence
  • A repertoire of beautiful chant music for harmonium

What’s included in the course:

  • Chant notation sheets for harmonium chords
  • Audio recordings of each chant to support your learning process by ear
  • 1 private 30-minute coaching session with Seth

Prerequisites:

  • Be able to bring your own harmonium
  • A basic understanding of how to play the harmonium either by taking an Intro Level course with Seth or a similar program
  • Familiarity with the keyboard and the western note names (A, B, C, etc.)
  • A basic understanding of sound production on the harmonium
  • Some experience playing simple chords and melodies while singing

Additional Information:

Students need to provide their own harmonium. Small harmoniums should fit in the overhead compartment on the plane. We do not recommend checking a harmonium underneath the plane.

If you’re interested in purchasing a harmonium, please contact Ferdie at hello@sethyogamusic.com for recommendations.

**Class sizes are small and space is limited to ensure enough personal attention for each student.  We encourage early registration to reserve a space.

If you are a complete beginner and wish to take this course, please schedule a private session with Seth, in advance.  You can contact Ferdie at hello@sethyogamusic.com for more information and scheduling.
