Secrets of the Monochord - Level 1 Training

Secrets of the Monochord:

Level 1 Feeltone Instrument Training

The power of overtones & natural acoustic vibration for Sound Meditation, Sound Baths, Sound Massage, and Vocal Toning

with USA Feeltone Trainer Joule L’Adara, MFA in Music 

This hands-on intimate intensive workshop will give you the opportunity to play, experience, and learn more about the Feeltone Monochords including the Monolini and Monolina Body Therapy Monochords plus the larger Concert and Meditation Monochords.

• learn Monochord playing techniques: How to create a "flying sound carpet" rich with overtones by bringing out the different overtones to accent your playing.

• be given the opportunity to open your ear to the harmonic spectrum, be shown how to differentiate between sound qualities, and understand the difference between tuning options for the Monochord strings.

• have clinical practice time: receiving the vibrations of these therapeutic instruments as a client, and giving supervised sessions as a sound practitioner.

• experience how playing a Monochord can open a new space for you: allowing you to relax, rejuvenate, and nourishing yourself and others.

• introduce gentle vocal toning into your sounding practice and learn how vocal overtones interact with the monochord overtones (no singing ability necessary!)
