Kirtan Central's "Learn to Play Harmonium" kit is a step-by-step program that gradually introduces you to the musical basics of playing kirtan. Eight chapters are packed with crucial musical information, clear and approachable presentations of scales and chords, and beautiful song sheets that make it easy to play a variety of kirtan songs.
Four DVDs contain eight individual half-hour lesson videos with music teacher Daniel Tucker. Close-ups provide a clear picture of what your hands should be doing on the keyboard for each exercise and kirtan song in the book.
Support materials include a 90-page lesson guidebook, twelve reference cards to put on your harmonium while practicing, and a companion CD to listen to the kirtan songs taught in the kit.
Beginners will find "Learn to Play Harmonium" very approachable - no prior knowledge or experience necessary. Each chapter builds gradually, with exercises to help you integrate the new information. Those who already play some harmonium will find many gems and insights that will deepen their understanding of Indian and Western music concepts, and enhance their technique and facility on harmonium.
