You don't have to read music to learn to play the harmonica! Category: Wind & Free Reed
This class is designed to help students ‘get their head around’ playing the harmonica without reading music. It doesn’t matter if you like the ‘straight harp’ sound of Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and country tunes or the ‘cross harp’ sound of blues and rock, this class is for you. Students will get an overview of how harmonicas work as well as how to care for them. We will listen to some classic harmonica tunes and map out how to play them. Students will explore different tones as well as amplification. Players are encouraged to play along with others and become aware of when and where to play.
Students should purchase harmonicas in the keys of C and A.
