Sound Notes: Strum on the strings close to the bridge of the monochord to create sounds rich in over-tones. Strum in the middle and the sound is more even.

It creates a sound experience much like that of a gong.

Here is what some of our customers have to say about the Monochord:

I am a Montessori teacher and own a monochord. I notice that the kids that I teach stop occasionally in their schoolwork, go over to the monochord and play, and then return with a feeling of calm to their work. Sometimes a child lays down on the Giant tongue drum and another one plays the tongue drum while a third child plays the monochord. For myself, I realized that the deep sound of the monochord grounds me while the higher pitch gives me upwards energy. I think the monochord is a precious instrument.

What our customers are saying...

"The Monolini is a beautifully crafted intuitive instrument that is perfect for sound healing with vocal improv groups because it creates a magical music bed over which delicious harmonies can be created. It so easily produces enchanting  overtones that a person playing it can simultaneously sit in a meditative state and keep the strings sounding with little effort. People are incredibly drawn to this lovely portable monochord whenever I give workshops."

- Joule L'adara, founder of Sounding Circles LLC

 

"As a music therapist, I know about the incredible therapeutic value of sound and vibration. I uses the monochord to begin and end her yoga classes, massage therapy sessions, and guided meditations. Because we synchronize with our sonic environment- a principle called "entrainment"- the monochord is a powerful tool that induces a parasympathetic response, reducing heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, pulse and brainwave activity. It facilitates a shift from the busy thinking and doing states to a calm feeling and being state, thereby promoting relaxation and preparing her clients to enter and receive deep healing through yoga, bodywork and meditation."

- Katarina Zech, Board Certified Music Therapist, Licensed Massage Therapist, Registered Yoga Teacher, and Meditation Guide.
