Harmonium Workshop (Lancashire)
|« Back to calendar||« Previous Event | Next Event »|
I am looking forward to returning to Lancashire for another harmonium workshop this time in Wigan.
This experiential and fun workshop is aimed at those new and relatively new to the harmonium with the aim of being able to play and sing Kirtan chants. This might be for your own personal practice, to share with your family or, in time, to lead a public Kirtan.
To begin the workshop we will spend a short while getting to know the instrument and learning how to navigate the keyboard as smoothly and easily as possible. We will look at the different ways of playing the harmonium and learn about playing chords and also chord inversions which can make life a lot easier for us. We will learn to play a few simple chants and begin to see how easily we can play any number of chants once we have grasped the basics and know a few chords! You will be provided with a chant sheet to go away and practice with and support you in the coming weeks and months. This workshop is only the beginning as there is no substitute for practice!
Please note if you came to the workshop with Tim last year we will be learning a whole new set of chants so you can build on your repertoire.
This is a small group and priority will be given to those who have their own harmonium but if you don’t have one but would still like to attend please do get in contact as one or two spares may be available.
For booking and venue information please email Tim: firstname.lastname@example.org
