Description

Do want to cause a stir playing the harmonica? Do you want to make an impact - surprise an audience a bit or at least wake them up?

We all have a little of the performer in us and from time to time we need to do a bit of showboating - you know, show biz - showing off on stage.

Really the music you play will do that for you but I'll show you a bunch of simple tricks that look and sound amazing. 

Fancy learning these?

  • The William Clarke Kiss

  • The Stevie Pop

  • The Drone

  • Palmer’s Whipcrack

  • The Sonny Pop

  • The Cough

  • Harp Singing

  • Conway’s Third Lung

  • Sonnyboy’s Hand’s Free

So take a look and see if it will help you.

If you have a tune or subject that you would like me to teach please message me.

Ben Hewlett is a very experienced music teacher who is able to be very patient and methodical. Each lecture will introduce you to the next group of notes – usually just 4 new notes and that's it.

This method is very easy for you to pick up the tunes as they are repeated over and over again until you have got it. You can even re-run the video if you find it useful.

Take one course and learn your favourite tune. The try another. Remember you can always get your money back if you wish but otherwise you have lifetime access to the course.

Imagine how amazing it will feel when you whip out your harmonica and play this tune – your friends and family will carry you shoulder high in triumph. Hopefully they don't carry you out of town and dump you in the river, but hey, swimming's good as well.

The health benefits of playing the harmonica are well documented – google it. Your lungs get exercised, your lung capacity increases, aerobic movement is good for you, playing music makes you smarter they say.

You will have fun on your own and with your friends, and more oxygen to the brain will make you think you are having a good time so it's all good.
