Harmonium Workshop for All with Debra Marks
March 30 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$35 – $40
Fee $40/$35 for yoga teachers (call the studio); please pre-register so we know how many workbooks to print.
No musical experience or instrument needed, just a desire to play and have fun! This workshop is a great opportunity to learn to play this beautiful instrument, to re-energize your existing practice and even share with your yoga class ♪
By the end of our 2-hours together, you will be playing vibrational scales, chords, and even leading mantra if you want! We will explore the basics of playing the harmonium, an air-reed organ. Learn basic notes, chords and melody. Use breath practices to enhance play and singing, and to care for your voice. You will have the opportunity to play, to lead OMs and to lead a simple kirtan (call and response chant). You will also receive a workbook with tips, basic chords and practice cards of familiar mantra, kirtan and bhajan (devotional songs) to encourage your on-going practice. Let’s have some fun!
*please let us know if you are able to bring a harmonium*

Debra walks the path of Bhakti yoga, practicing love and devotion of the Divine. She has played harmonium and chanted mantra for over five years, deeply inspired by the loving kindnesses of Krishna Das, Deva Premal, Snatam Kaur, Durga Das, the loving community at Uttara and the Sister Solstices.
