Description

Class Experience

Students will learn to play at least one song per session on the C harmonica
Know what key harmonica is used for playing in C,D,E,F, and G
Make various go-to sounds like “train sounds,” “bluesy shuffle,” “bending a note”
Jamming with a band and knowing which harmonica to use for a given key
Practice on songbook and technique handouts and charts are useful for continuing lessons. I like to hand out song lyrics with harp chords on them and charts that show the basics of music theory for learners to practice 15 minutes a day on songs, techniques and jams. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
The learner will need a simple diatonic harmonica in the key of C, which may be purchased at a supplied merchandise provider – see the plastic harmonicas in my teacher profile pic for an example. I will show you how to get one before the class begins so you can have ample time to fool around with it and get to know your instrument before you come to class: To get a Hohner harmonica key of C like the one in the picture for $10US via US Mail ... Use PayPal to send the $10 for delivery by US Mail to U.S. or Canada Just email to noemedia@pacbell.net with the Subject line: “Harmonikats Harp” and Guitar Galaxy will send you a PayPal e-Invoice. They will need your address in U.S. or Canada. Outside U.S. I will provide an Amazon dot com link. If you have a PayPal account: Use ... PayPal.Me/NoeGold/10 Cheers, "DoctorNoë"
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The learner is assessed on how well they are able to play the assigned music pieces in the learning text. They are also assessed on their tone quality, breath support and overall dynamics and tempos. But please note, I am not a judge, except maybe in the way Howie Mandel is a judge on America’s Got Talent. What that means is: there will not be a test – but I will give you encouragement if you get it right and the class will do virtual high fives all around.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.

About Me

I have been teaching music and writing to kids and adults for over 20 years, performing onstage with rock stars and blues musicians even longer than that and I love what I do.

I have been playing the harmonica since I was a kid, driving people...
