Preface To 'How To Play Harmonium' By Krishan Kumar Aggarwal & Shamboo Sharma

Man is the best creation of nature, and the best creation of man is music. It gives pleasure to mind, fills atmosphere with harmony and life with joy. Music also provides mental satisfaction and relax the body and mind. It is the reason, the history of music is older than the history of civilization. It is also universal and immortal. In every part of the world people sing and dance and also use various musical instruments. There are hundreds of musical instruments and some of them are very much popular. But as a matter of fact harmonium was on the top in last century and even today it ranks first in popularity. Piano is its older brother and accordion is its younger sister.

The craze of modern society and the best friend of teenagers, Casio or synthesizer is the most advanced model of harmonium. Although the synthesizer is operated by electric current and neither it has bellows nor reed board. But infact, it is operated just like a harmonium. Synthesizer may produce the sounds of five to one hundred musical instruments. There length varied from forty cm. to one and a half meter and cost from three thousand to several lacs. But they all produce the notes by pressing the keys of their key-board.We have also discussed in this book about synthesizers very clearly. It is the reason that you can become a perfect harmonium player as well as an synthesizer operator with the help of this book.

Singing, dancing and playing on any musical instrument are three streams of the music. Its every stream is complete in itself and pay you same relief and mental satisfaction. But for dancing the young age and light weight of body is a must. On the other hand for singing the good voice, correct pronounciation of the words and regular practice are the basic requirements. But for playing on any musical instrument no special quality is required. Every man or woman from childhood to very old age can easily operate any musical instrument of his choice. The harmonium and the synthesizers are so easy to operate, that they need no regular practice for hours together. You can also easily sing when playing on these instruments.

Without singing, only playing on the harmonium or on the synthesizer can make you the hero of any programme. Most of the musical instruments require tuning before playing, but synthesizer, accordion and any harmonium need not any previous operations. Actually playing on these instruments is much more easy than operating any other musical instrument. A music lover like you can became a perfect harmonium player or synthesizer operator within a month if you practice only one hour per day. So, get ready, my best wishes are with you.
