How to Play a Full Moon Singing Bowl?

Now that you know what singing bowls are used for, you must be curious about how to use them. Like any other musical instrument, the singing bowl should also be played with grace and handled with care. 

You can only create a harmonious sound when you play it with your heart. With a little bit of practice and patience, you can learn to play the singing bowl. Before learning to play the singing bowl, you should learn how to handle the bowl. The bowl comes with a mallet that is used to play the singing bowl. 

You can use two ways to play the singing bowl. With the striking method of playing the singing bowl, you will first hold the full moon singing bowl in the palm of your non-dominant hand. With the mallet, you will gently strike the bowl. The sound will resonate through the bowl to your ears. The low-frequency sound gets produced as the bowl vibrates and stays as long as the bowl vibrates. 

As for the next method of playing the singing bowl, you will need some practice. As soon as you strike the bowl and the bowl vibrates, you will start running the mallet around the rims of the bowl. This creates a muffled sound as the vibration is controlled with the mallet. This is known as the rimming method, the rimming method may take some time to perfect but it is great for meditation and relaxation. 

You can learn to control the sound just like perfecting any other musical instrument. You can also try the rimming method with water. Filling the bowl with water gives a different sound effect than the empty bowl. However, the water rimming method of playing the bowl is a little hard to perfect. 

You should not wet the rims and the mallet for a clear sound. The water in the bowl makes the sound more clear and the water vibrating is very satisfying to watch. You can get sound as well as visual therapy with this method.
