Description
  • Ever wanted to play a small musical instrument?
  • Want to amaze friends and family with your musical skills?

The Jews harp could be for you!

Also known as the jaw harp / mouth harp these small instruments are pretty easy to pick up and play. This course will assume a fair amount of previous experience, whether you took my basic course or already have some skills.

You will also need an instrument - and as we will be learning more advanced skills a 'Snoopy' harp or similar just will not make the grade. You'll need a quality instrument - I will tell you where you can find them and what to look for.

The lectures will take you through easy to understand exercises so you can quickly improve your skills with these great little instruments.

We'll start off checking that you have the skills to progress and then get on with it!

We will be learning all those crazy tricks and effects you've maybe seen on YouTube but will also be learning how to play in various styles and on several different sorts of instrument, including some pretty rare ones.

Basically this course should provide all the inspiration and tuition all you need do is provide yourself and a willingness to learn!

What are you waiting for?

Professional musician and teacher

Hello - my name is Jonny Cope but everyone calls me 'The Didgeridoo Man'.

I have been playing didgeridoo professionally for over twenty years, am the author of a best-selling range of tuition materials and have taught thousands of people, young and old, to play the didgeridoo. My tuition method has been published as a book since 1999, a cassette (if anyone remembers those!), a CD, and a DVD in 2007. These have been distributed the world over and reached and helped tens of thousand of people.

I also use and teach a variety of other instruments and techniques: Overtone singing, Throat singing (also know as Khoomei), the Jews Harp, ethnic winds and flutes, small percussion, etc.

I have published book & CD tuition methods on Khoomei / overtone singing and playing the Jews Harp.

Students taking my course may contact me via the forum on each course with questions or comments and I'll get back to you as quickly as I can.

Having studied with several well-known international players and Australian Aboriginal Elders, I have been teaching all levels of this increasingly popular instrument for the past fifteen years via international workshops, 1-2-1 lessons and even Skype webcam.

I have given performances and presented workshops at music festivals and events, corporate team building days, charity balls, weddings and family fun days throughout Europe. I also regularly teach in UK schools via my educational program.

My clients include many blue-chip companies, schools, education authorities and charities, not to mention a few famous folks (no I can't drop any names!).

My Youtube channel has had nearly 3 million views with 3 thousand subscribers.

Basically I've taught so many people with my methods that I'm pretty darn confident that I can help YOU too!

So confident that I'm offering a 30 day money-back gaurentee with Udemy.

Take the course and if you feel it is genuinely not helping then you can easily just stop and get a full refund.

So go ahead and dive into a course that will take you on a wonderful journey of discovery with this amazing and under-rated instrument and wow your friends with your amazing new skills!

Best wishes,

Jonny Cope.
