Harmonica:
A free reed wind instrument used worldwide in many musical genres, notably in blues, American folk music, classical music, jazz, country, and rock and roll. There are many types of harmonica, including diatonic, chromatic, tremolo, octave, orchestral, and bass versions. A harmonica is played by using the mouth, lips and tongue to direct air into or out of one or more holes along a mouthpiece. Behind each hole is a chamber containing at least one reed. A harmonica reed is a flat elongated spring typically made of brass, stainless steel, or bronze, which is secured at one end over a slot that serves as an airway. When the free end is made to vibrate by the player's air, it alternately blocks and unblocks the airway to produce sound. The lessons will consist of starting at the very beginning with the basics of first learning how to breathe and make tones through multiple holes and then getting a sound from one hole. We will learn how blowing in or out creates different ...

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Rose is wonderful! Very outgoing, professional, easy to talk to and she really knows her stuff! Rose did a fantastic job making my 11 year old daughter feel comfortable with her as well as ascertaining where she was in terms of her piano playing abilities. I would absolutely recommend Rose as a most excellent piano instructor!

Ready to learn some pro techniques on one of the most fun, portable, and soulful instruments out there?

The chromatic harmonica was my first instrument which I taught myself by ear at the age of 5, so all ages are welcome in my harmonica class. The harmonica is perfect for playing melodies. I can play "blues harp" as well which is also a lot of fun and has a different kind of expressive feel with the bending. Whichever one you're interested in learning, I can help you hit the ground sprinting with one of the most portable and enjoyable instruments out there! It's all about the feeling and the fun of it!

After taking lessons online with Mark, I finally started making progress with the accordion I have had for 2 years and tried to learn by myself. He does a great job teaching music theory in small pieces that I can immediately use and apply to other songs and even other instruments as I go about practicing outside of lessons. I'm so glad I started taking lessons!

Also the TakeLessons website and video chat function work well; I haven't had any problems logging on or with connection so the lessons have all gone smoothly from a technical standpoint.

First lesson and can't wait for the next and beyond. I really appreciated Mark's insights and suggestions to a song I brought to him for feedback. He was very supportive and provided actionable ideas I can use to improve it immediately.

Harmonica, also known as the "Mouth Harp" is a very easy, practical and fun little instrument for all ages! You can take this little gem of an instrument wherever you go.

We will start with the very basics of how to hold the harmonica correctly, proper mouth position, how to achieve a nice, clean sound when blowing and drawing (putting it simply, drawing your breath back in, inhaling.)

The items you will need is a Harmonica in the key of C and a Lesson Book.
Harmonicas come in various keys, but the key you will need to learn when signing up in the TakeLessons platform will be the KEY OF C.

Once you have signed up, either for yourself, or a child, I will then send you an email with the link where you can purchase the lesson book that we will
work out of. Once you have a good foundation and are comfortable playing the harmonica, we can then determine what genre or style of music you would like to play. There are books that have a nice selection of songs that cover bluegrass, ...

More than 10 years ago, I told a good friend that learning to play the dulcimer was on my bucket list. He made my beautiful instrument and said " now you need to learn to play". 2021 is my year! Fortunately, Rhonda has become my instructor and I look forward to the weekly lessons. Her enthusiasm for teaching, her extensive knowledge, and many years of experience have given me the confidence that I can learn .

You can expect me to listen to what you tell me, listen to how you play, and then give you information and activities to increase your understanding and develop your abilities. It could be anything from which end of the harmonica is up to advanced classical or jazz performance, or anything in between - blues harp, Neil Young, you name it.

This was my first lesson with Winslow. During it, he was personal, patient, and professional. The man has a wealth of experience to share. No question I asked was too basic for him. Unlike other instructors, he focused on me as a student, not on his ability to impress me with his playing. I will continue with Winslow, who told me "I want to take you where you want to go with the harmonica." Who could ask for a better philosophy of teaching?

"I had my first harmonica lesson with Ronnie and he is awesome! He is very passionate and knowledgeable about music. As a teacher, he is patient and thorough. I appreciate that he was able to simplify concepts for me and took the time to identify my goals. For our first lesson he was intentional about not jumping in too quickly and helping me set realistic expectations for my progress. I left feeling excited to turn this interest into a long-term passion. His communication is great and he is responsive via email and text. I had a change in my schedule for the first lesson. When I reached out to him to ask about changing the time he was understanding and flexible. I felt safe meeting in his home and he has an adorable dog (which is an obvious bonus)."
