Always wanted to rock that harmonica you’ve got laying around? We’ve got the course for you!
The sweet sound of a harmonica instantly tells a story in the most exciting and honest way. Our Continuing Harmonica class will build on basic harmonica skills — before you know it, you’ll be singing the blues or rocking a jig. Taught by Dirty Catfish Brass Band member Todd Martin.
Core components to be covered:
- Producing single notes clearly
- Note bending technique
- Both rhythmic and melodic playing
- Proper breathing technique
- Both solo and accompaniment playing
Don’t own a harmonica yet? Make sure you pick one up at Long & McQuade or St. John’s Music before the first class! To get the best blues sound out of a new instrument, Todd recommends Hohner, Suzuki, Lee Oskar or Seydel brand harmonicas in the key of C Major.
