ABOUT CHANTING MANTRAS
Your voice is your most precious instrument. Your voice can heal yourself and others, can connect you to your higher source. Chanting mantras is a transformative experience. It allows you to be yourself, to be honest and authentic. Deepens the feeling of devotion and connection with the divinity, the joy of opening your heart and silencing the mind.
Chanting the names of Gods is an ancient practice found in most of the spiritual traditions. Different names are chanted, following the same principle. By chanting these names, gradually we go deeper and deeper in the light of our own hearts. Our inner self is revealed. Chanting these names gradually we realize that we are being taken back to ourselves.

Dear friends, Amit is a great teacher, both in music and in heart. I'm learning how to play the Harmonium in which he gives different kind of exercises which rise in difficulty. These exercises seem to follow in such a way you learn more quickly then you even self would expect. While playing he's very there with you and show you where you're a bit off or might improve. I like my lessons with Amit and even more love his company. If you want to learn the Harmonium, he's the teacher you should meet.
Amit is an amazing music teacher, I would recommend him without question! He presented Indian music in such an incredible, understandable way, and made it fun. Many years later I still sing the tunes we learned and the practices he give are so helpful to develop your music skills!
I highly recommend Amit as a music teacher to anyone from the novice to the more experienced musician. He is an excellent artist and a master of his art. I booked for 15 classes with him, and I learned a great deal. I had contacted him for harmonium lessons, but he also coached me on my voice and rhythm.
Very pleasant experience. Luckily, in my time spent in Rishikesh, I met Amit , a very good teacher, passionate about music. In a simple and very clear way he gave me the foundation to start playing Harmonium. In addition, he gave me the opportunity to enjoy some of his concerts. I am eternally grateful I could understand the structure of this wonderful music and definitely fall in love with India! Ten points without a doubt!
I had an amazing time with them. After one week workshop I was able to play and sing some mantras with the harmonium and even be able to find chords, scales....and I never played before. They are patience and you feel they do it with a lot of love ❤ I would recommend it to everybody even for the ones who never played music before, a good chance to do it with the right people 🤗Thanks a lot ❤❤
I had my harmonium and vocal classes in the 7 Days Mantras Workshop with Shivaratri Music School. Amit is very passionate about his music and his work and it comes through strongly in his teaching. He has an in-depth knowledge of music and knows how to train your voice while teaching you the instrument. Now my love for music has grown more and I want to keep learning and practicing more.
