    About Course

    In the Vedic period, the veena was used by the sages to play hymns sung by the gods. Later it was the main instrument of classical music.

    Description

    The harmonium is a type of keyboard instrument much similar to an organ, i.e., requiring air to produce the sound. The instrument was first invented in France, around 1840, and has been adapted to similar musical instruments over the years. The most common variant today is the Indian harmonium, which is a characteristic instrument for Indian classical and regional music.

    The Indian harmonium features a bellow that needs to operate with the hand, and keys are pressed simultaneously to produce music. The foot-pumped harmonium is a more older variant of the instrument, which features pedals instead of bellows, to pump air to the reeds.

    Today, the harmonium typically accompanies different musical genres & styles across the South Asian countries, like India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, etc. It can be heard in Hindustani classical music, bhajan & other forms of devotional music, sufi music, Natya Sangeet, and more. The harmonium is often used as an accompaniment to Indian classical dance traditions as well, such as Bharatnatyam & Kathak. As such, in India, learning the harmonium is often considered essential for learning different musical genres.
