Learn to play real tunes on your harmonica across two stress-free, consecutive days. (Absolute beginners - Intermediates). Take your harmonica out of the drawer and learn to play it! You don't need to read music. You don't need to already be a musician. You do need a wish to learn and to bring along a fully-working, ten holed, "Blues Harp Style" diatonic harmonica in the key of C major. With these two things you can learn easily with me. "Day One" consists of the basics to get you all playing together. We'll try out some very simple tunes and techniques enabling you to get going, measure your progress and be happy within a supportive environment. "Day Two" is a direct progression on what we learned the day before. We will attempt Folk, Sing-alongs, Pop and Blues, maybe jamming etc (it's open to group discussion). We will enjoy learning using a variety of tied and tested learning methods. It's kept as realistic, positive, stress-free, manageable, musical fun. When the two days are over you will all be able to successfully perform recognisable tunes on the harmonica.
