Since 2010, Mike Cohen, MA, has supported thousands of chant fans on their journey into Kirtan Leadership. Each year, Mike and his team train hundreds of Kirtan Leaders through his Kirtan Leader Institute—from total beginners, to those who share Kirtan with others, and even some who go on to lead bands, create albums, tour and play festivals!

His proven system (which bypasses the need to read or understand Western or Indian music or music theory) quickly and easily guides students to chant at home and share with others in a way that makes intuitive sense to those with no musical background.

Mike loves teaching students how to play chants on harmonium, guiding them how to build Somatic Awareness & Shakti Awareness, and helping them access deep wisdom through myth in a way that's both relevant & invaluable for our modern times. In 2020, Mike released his fourth full-length Kirtan album with Grammy nominated producer Ben Leinbach. Mike lives in Boulder, CO with his partner Martha. He is committed to sharing Kirtan and teaching people how to chant at home and share sacred chant with others.
