Meet Kenny

About Kenny Clarys


Hi! I’m Kenny Clarys. As a musician, multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer I’ve built more than 30 years of experience in music of different kinds and genres. My first instrument was the violin (Western classical), and I went on to study the piano and music production.

Through a multicultural upbringing and education, I got deeply involved in Indian music and instruments, and was particularly drawn to the harmonium. As I started playing from a young age at various events like meditations, concerts and workshops, I gained important skills and techniques while learning from Indian teachers and accompanying great singers. I’ve also travelled multiple times to India, and being drenched in its unique atmosphere and culture inspired me to create three albums of meditation music (In The Moment).

The harmonium used to be – at least in the West – a rare instrument, and for a long time I was one of the very few who played it. But that changed some years ago, when I was spontaneously contacted by more and more students wanting to learn how to play the harmonium.

When the Covid situation made it difficult to teach physically, I started recording my lessons and turning them into an online course. It became The Harmonium Evolution, which enabled me to pass on my musical knowledge and technique to hundreds of students worldwide.

Now I am dedicated to guiding you throughout your own harmonium evolution, and my first priority is to make sure you have access to all the help, information and tools you need to become a confident player.

The Harmonium Evolution teaches you to be free and creative on your instrument, and to be able to play any song you like.

So let’s do this.
I invite you to connect and talk about your goals and aspirations regarding playing Harmonium and learning music. How can I help you to achieve your goals?

Let's talk!

Meet Mari Joël

About Mari Joël


Hey! I am Mari Joël – artist, performer and composer.
I’ve been singing, playing the piano and writing songs for as long as I can remember. And I’m also married to Kenny Clarys and co-founder of The Harmonium Evolution.

Throughout my life music has been my source of joy, my comfort, my therapy and my means of transformation. But it wasn’t until I started teaching that I experienced firsthand how playing and learning music had an impressive positive effect not just on me, but on my students and listeners, and how it could even impact the world at large. Ever since I’ve made it my aim to pass on the immense confidence, joy and satisfaction that results from making music and singing while using the right techniques, musical knowledge and intuition.

Like Kenny, I was also raised in both Eastern and Western culture, which gave me the advantage of being able to teach Eastern music through a Western method, and vice versa. Both of us continually strive for connecting the best of both worlds. Together we’ve created an album (Elaisa), toured through Europe and played on numerous stages and festivals.

What I want you to know is that you can become as confident and skilled in music as we are. Yes, it will take some work and discipline, but we’ll be there for you every step of the way.

I am involved in The Harmonium Evolution course whenever it comes to songs, chords and any questions you may have about vocal technique while playing the harmonium.

Singing bhajans and mantras comes naturally to me, and as I am specialized in singing and playing chords and melodies simultaneously I am thrilled to guide you to mastery in this field.

I’ll see you in the course!
