  • The long-term goal is for you to be able to use the instrument in creative expression.
  • You will learn to understand and play short pieces of music and also, you will be taught fingering exercises. These various techniques will help you to deepen your capacity to listen and understand rhythm.
  • The teacher can also come to your center (music academy, conservatory, festival) with several kamalengonis and offer different types of workshops.

Music Therapy

For several years now I have been playing the kamalengoni for mentally-challenged adults.

  • With a reassuring shape, the color of the sounds soothes and calms. The instrument works wonders for mentally challlenged adults and helps to open the door to exploring music.
  • By using the pentatonic scale, which means that the notes can all be played together, one can be easily guided towards introspection
  • This instrument really does help one feel safe and secure with the pentatonic scale and soothing sounds. In this way everyone, musicians and non musicians, can feel the joy of music.

Enjoy and discover the Kamalengoni:

Discover in music.

  • One of the amazing things about kamalengoni is that since the notes are all on a pentatonic scale, the instrument does not have any false notes. This means that you don’t necessarily need to be a musician in order to play.
  • I think that the experience of learning and playing on your own should be shared with others. Since the instrument doesn’t have any false notes, it’s easy. And all the while, I am present, in order to guide the group in playing and exploring the instrument in a fun stress-free environment.
  • I present the kamalengoni with words and with music and afterwards I encourage each participant to feel at ease and to let the creativity flow with this magical instrument.
  • Listening, feeling, creativity, music, and fun guaranteed !
Cost

The session is about two hour long.
