I have 2 new books out, that will help you go to the next level when it comes to playing the harmonium. The Ulimate Riyaaz book and The ulitmate book of sargam patterns. These are great books for after you have mastered the Harmonium workbook. Check them out on Amazon.com. You can order them along with the Harmonium workbook, if you wish.

C.c. White – “Amazing Keith! So wonderful that you’re sharing this with the World!
Thank You!”

Pascale LaPoint, lead vocalist – Kirtan Path – “There’s something here for everyone —
beginner to advanced. You pick whether you merely want to learn one of the many easy
chants provided with notation or whether you want to delve fully into learning to play the
harmonium and compose your own melodies to timeless mantras. Using this workbook
gives you hours upon hours of study opportunities with fingering and vocal exercises,
chord progressions, sargam, thaats, ragas, pronunciation; all put together by my dear
bhakti brother Hanumanji — a labor of love that is the best harmonium workbook I have
seen around.”

David Estes (Ananda Rasa Kirtan) – “Harmonium Workbook A to Z by Keith Villanueva
is far more than just a harmonium workbook. It is a comprehensive manual for all kirtan
musicians covering both Eastern and Western musical foundations and much more.
Everything from vocal warmups and exercises, harmonium keyboard technique, a
Sanskrit pronunciation guide, a guide to rhythm, a great variety of different chants by
Kirtan artists…It’s all in there. Thanks Keith for putting this together for all us.
Hari Bol!”
