Basic Seminar Level I: The Secret of the Monochord - Learn how to play the monochord.

The monochord is one of the oldest string instrument, which Pythagoras used too and lead to his discovery of the harmonical laws of nature. In our fast past life the monochord with its overtone rich spherical sounds can help us to find equilibrium and tranquility, support our meditations and invites us to dream.

The Monochord is a versatile friend for everyone and not only for musicians, accompanying us while singing, chanting or during storytelling.

The monochords are widely used but many people still have questions on how to use them and how they effect others.

- Are they really simple to play?

- Which of the different kind of the monochord instruments is best for my needs?

- How can I play the instrument, what different playing techniques are available.

These and many more questions will be answered in this training.
