Why should you listen to me?

Hey! My name is Alon and I am 28 years old. I have been teaching music, both online and face to face, to tens of thousands of students in the last six years - while traveling four different continents and jammin' and performing with many different musicians. I am mainly a harmonica player, guitarist and pianist, and I also play other instruments including the flute, trumpet, bass and more. I am constantly looking for the best ways and shortcuts to teaching music effectively - and with FUN. The student feedbacks show that I do it very well. (:

My guitar blog, GuitarHippies-com, (founded in 2014) where I share my tips for playing music, has a monthly readership of over 100K people from over a 150 different countries and is one of the world's top five most read guitar blogs*. I am also the founder of the Harmonica Jamz-com courses and blog that has been online since 2016 and has thousands of happy students here on Udemy.

*According to SimilarWeb-com stats.

"Excellent course, I never played any instrument before but after a couple of jam sessions with Alon I was already jamming with my dad at home. The quality of the video editing and the helpful texts on screen were also very impressive." Josh Cole, England.

Wait. Why should I play the harmonica anyway?

Well, harmonicas are unique instruments in a couple of ways. They are:

  • Easy to learn and to play. (when done with the right teaching method)

  • Extremely compact - can always in your backpack or pocket, ready to play.

  • AFFORDABLE. 40$ buy you the best ones, hand-made in Germany.

  • Social instruments - always ready to jam with other guitarists and friends. 

  • Sound great with multiple music genres from rock, to blues, to pop and country.

  • Developing your ears and feel for the music.

Why shouldn't I take another course or just watch free YouTube lessons? 

Two reasons: 

1) Your time is valuable, and trying to learn your way through random lessons on random harmonica topics (instead of using a systematic, proven approach) will never get you as far as where I can take you - and in a much shorter time.

2) Harmonica Jamz is built in a unique way which makes it the most interactive (and therefore - fun and easy to learn from) harmonica course online. After each lecture, we will have an interactive jam session where you will be playing the harmonica along to the relevant music, while the key points that we just talked about will be right in front of you, in a text form.

This way, you have fun while the knowledge gets implemented in your brain and gets you ready to get out there and jam with real people.

*By the way, Harmonica Jamz is also professionally produced and filmed in a boutique music studio, and in standards of quality that are unknown in the harmonica videos world. The lessons are a joy to watch and listen to - as you can see in the previews. 

What are the topics that are covered in the course? How will they help me?

We cover two big topics: 1) Playing Songs. 2) Improvising music and jammin' with other people.

It is all done using the following "building blocks": 

  1. Playing the harmonica with the tone of a professional - to get the most beautiful sound you can out of your harp.

  2. Learning to play single notes - this will enable you to enrich your musical pallete and play ANY song. 

  3. We will learn specifically how to play some famous rock songs to get you started.

  4. You will learn the essentials of music theory - this will enable you to start IMPROVISING your own riffs.

  5. When you know how to improvise, you can confidently get out there and jam with other musicians!

  6. You will acquire a solid sense of rhythm through the Harmonica Jamz Rhythm Method™. Rhythm is one of the biggest foundations to sound great on any music instrument. 

  7. You will know all the notes of the harmonica in all three octaves. This means you will be able to play songs by ear and to improvise with ease - instead of randomally "shooting in the dark" like how most amateur harmonica players do. 

All the lessons are built in a revolutionary, interactive way. How exactly?

  1. In the first part of each lesson - I am in the studio, teaching you the new technique while giving examples on HD video. 

  2. In the second part of each lesson - the course becomes totally interactive - I am playing a jam track for you, (in beautiful, live HD video as you can see in the free preview) while you are at home jammin' along. On screen I will be reminding you, through text, all the key points we just talked about.

So you get to learn while havin' fun and while you are much more likely to ingrain the material than with any other course out there!

Sound good! You mentioned that we'll learn some songs. Which songs exactly? 

Yes! Playing songs' melodies is one of the most satisfying musical experiences you can have. 

In the course, I will show you my examples of those songs, and then you will get to play them yourself while I show you the harmonica notes on screen and the music is playing for you in the background without my harmonica. (check out the preview of "Let It Be".

The songs that we will learn include:

  • The Beatles - Let It Be

  • Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah

  • Old Crow Medicine Show - Wagon Wheel

  • Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderful World

  • Bob Marley - Jammin'

  • Neil Young - Heart of Gold

  • Bob Dylan - Knockin' on Heaven's Doors

  • The Rolling Stones - Angie

  • You Are My Sunshine

  • Elvis Presley - Can't Help Falling in Love with You

  • and 10+ others!

Can't wait to see you inside!

Who this course is for:
  • People who love music and who want to play music themselves on the harmonica.
  • People who have no experience of playing any musical instrument or people who do.
  • People who have previous experience on the harmonica but are looking for a more complete approach.
  • Musicians who play other instruments.
  • People who LOVE music - WILL have a great time in the course and WILL learn a new, cool musical skill.
  • Harmonica players who want to learn advanced techniques!
