hi you need someone who has perfect pitch (can instantly recognise notes just by hearing them).  they can write the notes for you.  try posting a request on one of those sites where you request something for a small amount of money (like fiverr?).  but becareful of frauds etc obviously.  ask for some proof they have that ability.

alternatively you could ask around any local harmonium teachers in your area, but test them out first.

Waheguru Ji

First you need the right harmonium. It should have (refer to attached picture for terminology):

  • 3.5 octaves (42 keys)
  • Triple or multi-fold bellows (for easy playing and long sustaining sound)
  • 2 high quality reeds (bass + male), the combination of which produces an "organ sound"

BINA (in Delhi) produces several models that meet these specs, including model No. 9, 17, 23B. NAGI in Patiala also have these types of harmonium

It's hard to list the entire notation here but here are some hints to get you started (refer to attached picture for key #'s)

  • Open the cover above the keys and lift the spring off of Key #5, Octave #1. Put the cover back on
  • The Shaan starts at Key #5, Octave #2
  • There are 3 parts to the Shaan. Each gets faster and each part is played twice (first in Octave 2 and second in Octave 3 - hence why you need 42 keys)
  • The shaan ends in Octave #2, keys 5-7

Best of luck
