Complete Course Description

If you ever wanted to learn to play the harmonica this updated course is for you!



\r\n\r\n



I will hold your hand all the way through the videos with my 'infectious and humourous' style of teaching. People tell me that and who am I to argue.



\r\n\r\n



You will feel like I'm right with you in a one to one lesson showing exactly you how to do it, and encouraging to to become confident and go it alone.

Why play the harmonica?



\r\n\r\n



·It's easy to play – you don't even need to use fingers



\r\n\r\n



·The harmonica is an accessible and relatively easy introduction to music



\r\n\r\n



·You can play scales and tunes over three octaves



\r\n\r\n



·You can play rhythms with chords, as well as melodies (sometimes even both at the same time!)



\r\n\r\n



·You can also play pairs of notes simultaneously using different intervals, including octaves



\r\n\r\n



·It's cheap and fits in your pocket



\r\n\r\n



·You can play along / accompany on the piano – the harmonica equates to the white notes on the piano



\r\n\r\n



·It sounds great right out of the box

What Are The Requirements

All you need is a 10 hole diatonic harmonica in C. Just get one from your local music store. The Mojo is recomended for Blues and the Sonnyboys Special is a good allround harmonica. Hohner harmonicas are also recommended but any will also get the job done.
