A Review By a Happy Student:

"This course is a collection of harmonica wisdom. It will not directly teach you how to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star but you can easily get that from any beginners harmonica book (Alon does show us how to play the major scale so you could probably work it out without a book after doing this course anyway!).

What this course will do is: a) inspire you b) give you lots of great tips that will help you to understand how to develop good technique c) give you pointers on how to get started and to avoid the pitfalls that many beginners fall into. d) show you the difference between just blowing and drawing on the harmonica to actually playing it as an expressive musical instrument. e) show you the potential that harmonica has as a great musical instrument I have not watched all of this course yet but I wanted to give you my thoughts on it as it stands now."

Common Questions That I Get About the Course:

Which harmonica do you recommend to get?
Hohner, a German company, is the undisputed industry leader of harmonicas. (I am not related to them in any way) I recommend any of their models in the 20-35$ range, especially the Marine Band model or the Blues Harp model. If you’re looking for a more affordable option that still feels and sounds great, check out the Hohner Blues Bender (~20$) that will let you safely “test the water” without investing too much. ---When you purchase your new harmonica, make sure it’s in THE KEY of C---
Will I actually learn how to play the harmonica in this course?
You will learn the first steps and you will learn a lot of cool techniques that will make you sound better and enjoy the harmonica a lot more. If you'll really like the harmonica and you'll want to keep learning more deeply about it, including how to play songs with it and how to jam with other people, (like friends who play guitar for example) then check out my complete harmonica course which is called "Harmonica Jamz".
