Intro to Harmonium
with Seth Lieberman
Saturday, April 21st, 2:00-4:00pm
$30 preregister/$35 day-of
In this workshop we will cover the basics of harmonium playing, the mechanics of playing the instrument, becoming familiar with the keyboard and note names, some basic music concepts and terminology, care and maintenance of the instrument, and chanting and playing at the same time. We will learn a chant together and how to use the harmonium to chant OM at the beginning and end of a yoga class. This is a fun, accessible, supportive way to begin or continue your study of the harmonium, group chanting, and music and a good place to start if you are considering purchasing an instrument or studying privately with Seth. This is open to all levels of experience and is recommended for yoga teachers, students and anyone interested in music and chanting.
*If you have a harmonium and can bring it to the workshop, please contact Seth or email The Yoga House.
**Space is limited to a small group so more personal attention can be given to each student. Pre-registration is highly recommended.
Seth Lieberman is a musician and yoga instructor based in New York City and the Hudson Valley. He discovered the harmonium and kirtan in 2009 during his first yoga teacher training. With his developing devotion to yoga practice and his already extensive background as a classically trained musician, he quickly and deeply delved into this intersection of music and yoga. Since 2011, he has been teaching harmonium and chanting to students privately and in group settings. Seth’s fun, practical and holistic approach to teaching music balances the technique and training required to play an instrument with the intuitive, spiritual, and devotional aspects of yoga practice.
