Harmonica Lessons

There is a reason harmonica is dubbed “The People’s Instrument;” it is relatively simple to play, affordable, and loads of fun! We 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).  The portability and ease of the harmonica make it a great choice for beginners, or a great addition to your musical toolbox.

We’re happy to provide the most interactive and fun harmonica lessons Boise has to offer!  At your harmonica lessons we’ll not only help you develop a strong musical foundation, we’ll also teach you a variety of popular songs so you can play with other musicians.

  • Emphasis on understanding and communicating musical keys
  • Jamming/improvisation
  • Live playing and micing through amplification

And, as always, let us know if there’s something special you want to learn and we’ll make it happen.
