Harmonica Lessons!

Hello Harmonica Lovers!

This post is going to be on harmonica lessons. I wrote a post earlier on harmonica lessons, which I talked about the difference between, when I first started to play the harmonica there was no internet, or free online courses like they offer now. The way that I learned how to play the harmonica, was from a book, with lot’s of practice, patience, and time with my own motivation.

Now because of technology, and the internet it’s a lot easier to learn faster with less bad habits, and professional instructors teaching online for Free! Yes I said Free! There is a lot of free professional instructor courses online, that also offer the ability to purchase online courses with CD Packs so you can practice over, and over at you own pace.

One of my earlier post talks about what’s Hot, and what’s Not! You can check that out right here>harmonica lessons     

The harmonica book that I learned from is called “How to play the Harmonica Instantly” which I paid $10 for it in the 60’s  the same book is offered now, but comes with a blues harmonica, and a blues CD Pack for $27.99 more money but more value.

The best way to get harmonica lessons if you can afford it, would be with a professional Instructor one, on one, lesson which are usually $100 an hour. That is why most people learn from books, CD’s, or online courses. Some of the lessons that they offer are for beginners to professionals from A-Z they teach you everything from the basics, of  learning simple melodies to playing single notes.

Some of the online instructors are David Barrett, Ronnie Shellist, Jason Ricci, Adam Gussow, Howard Levy, and J.P. Allen which is an instructor that I suggest I purchased a CD lesson Pack thru J.P. Allen that has helped me become a better harmonica player, even after playing for 25yrs.

You can always learn something new, you’re never too old, I’m 65, and still learning new skills on the harmonica.

  1. I have always admired the music that harmonicas made, and especially those who play them well. The harmonica line on Stevie Wonder’s “That Girl” comes to mind as one of the most memorable, and beautifully played instances of harmonica playing. Are there different types of harmonicas, and would you happen to know what kind Stevie was playing, if there are different kinds?

  2. Hi Christian, Thank you for the nice comments, and to answer your questions, Stevie Wonder Plays a Chromatic harmonica, with the button on the side to change octaves. Here’s a post I did earlier on Stevie Wonder>That Girl check it out if you get a chance, I just added the video for you Christian. To answer your other question about different types of harmonicas, yes there are a lot of different brands, styles, and shapes which you can check out here>different types If you need any help with anything please ask me. Please leave me a comment, and let me know what you think about the Stevie Wonder Video?

    Have a blessed day!
