There is a reason harmonica is dubbed “The People’s Instrument;” it is relatively simple to play, affordable, and loads of fun! We choose to focus on the 10 hole diatonic “blues harp” harmonica. If you have played a harmonica in your lifetime, it was likely diatonic (unless you’re Stevie Wonder).
At Boise Music Lessons, our harmonica players get a healthy dose of:
- Diatonic (10 hole) straight harp and cross-harp (Blues)
- Individual notes and chord styles
- Emphasis on understanding and communicating musical keys
- Live playing and micing through amplification
As with all instruments, at your harmonica lesson we’ll provide a foundation of note reading, functional theory, ear training, and musical collaboration and communication.
