Harmonium freedom 

4 Week Intensive Online Course

Limited Space

Harmonium Freedom is an opportunity finally befriend your harmonium and unlock its possibilities to accompany you on your journey of spiritual evolution. We’ll take a journey together as fellow yogis, yoga teachers and kirtan lovers in order to understand the fundamentals of playing the harmonium so that you can experience freedom in playing, singing, sharing, expressing yourself and meditating with the harmonium as your companion. 

This is a unique 4 week online course – which uses my “6 Core Chord method” to unlock the whole keyboard. 

This program is for anyone who has ever had a wish to play the harmonium or who wants to embark on a journey of a deeper exploration of sound, mantra and kirtan. 

 We will learn:

  • How you can use the harmonium as a profound meditative accompaniment from day 1. 
  • How to chant Om, Bija mantras accompanied by the harmonium
  • How to open and close a yoga class with invocation and mantra. 
  • The Basic anatomy of the harmonium & troubleshooting
  • What to practice & How to master the basics 
  • The 6 core chord system ©  – a foundation to unlock the whole keyboard 
  • How to play without distracting stickers & sheets of paper falling everywhere
  • How to find any chord without your notebook to hand (giving you freedom to play spontaneously when the occasion arises) 
  • Finding your authentic voice and expression with the support of the harmonium
  • Mantras as a meditative practice, invocation (i.e in yoga classes), and of course:
  • KIRTAN! 3-4 beautiful kirtans which you can play, sing and share

FAQs

1. Why is this structured as a four week course? Can’t I just access the material directly.

Firstly – you can opt to access the material immediately. However I have designed this course as 4 week journey that we will take together as a group. I believe that learning the basics of the harmonium needn’t be stretched over a long period of time. Furthermore doing it together as a group encourages accountability – meaning that you will stay motivated throughout the course and get the most out of it! 

Setting an intention for a short period of time, with clear aims and small steps is a great way to begin learning an instrument.

Of course, there is scope for flexibility, and you will have lifetime access to the material after the course ends. 

2. I have no musical experience, is this course right for me?

I have designed this course specifically for those without musical experience. Although I had a classical musical training, I realised that what is required for playing kirtan, hold space with sound in a meditative setting, or lead a mantra confidently is actually very definable and furthermore learnable. I have devised a system for non musical learners which will allow you to have a stable foundation in chords, rhythm and melody without being able to read music. This also applies if you have musical experience but are unfamiliar with the piano keyboard.  

The process is designed to come directly to the heart and not dwell on the technical aspects more than is necessary. However it aims to give you a good  foundation if you wish to pursue the technical aspects further! 

Some nice things students have said!

Daisy is a great and wonderful teacher. There is so much I’ve learned in my harmonium sessions. Not only playing the harmonium and learning the chords, also to connect and learn about the mantras and get more confident with my voice. I strongly  recommend her as a teacher.

I think I can work out and play any mantra with your method. You taught me the essence of mantras. It is also important to you that I play the harmonium with my heart and with feeling. This is the only way beautiful music can be created.

 Still not sure whether the course is right for you?


Why not take 15 minutes to learn the Gayatri mantra with me in this tutorial I made! 

The first part is just to have a go and play along with – the second part breaks down each section so you can learn it.

If you find it really easy and perhaps are able to sing this and play this with your eyes closed after a couple of tries, it’s a sign that this course will be too basic for. If you find it difficult, then the course will offer a step by step route to bring us to this level and understand everything on the way!
