HARMONIUM - Indian Keyboard (Beginners)


A harmonium, also called a "melodeon", "reed organ" or "pump organ", is a keyboard instrument that is a lot like an organ. It makes sound by blowing air through reeds, which are tuned to different pitches to make musical notes. You will be taken through practical lessons to play harmonium. This is an instrumental lesson so you will need your own harmonium. The Hindustani Classical syllabus would be covered through this course.
