Personal Description:

Greetings!

Harmonica is a beautiful instrument to play and historically and culturally present in so much music, film, advertising that surround us!
Everyone loves the Harmonica or has had an old harmonica at home!
Have you wanted to pickup the harmonica but not sure where to start or how to go about it?

Wanting to introduce your child to a musical instrument but wanting something a bit more original?

Do you play already to some degree but finding yourself stuck in a rut and not sure how to improve your playing level of the instrument?

Maybe you play in a function band professionally but need guidance on a specific harmonica piece as part of your setlist?

I have a program that I can tailor further to your requirements to introduce you to the fantastic and exciting sound of blues harmonica… something you can play on your own or with other musicians.

I specialise in Blues harmonica as I have been playing the instrument and style of music for 20 years. I have vast experience as a performer on the London music scene fronting my own bands also. I have performed in all the known Blues music related venues in London and namely toured with the guitar player of the son of legendary Muddy Waters, an icon in modern Music (for those of you who are Blues fans, that name will ring a bell).

The blues harmonica is fun and with my guidance will be captivating to learn!

Lessons available online due to COVID currently however when the time is right home lessons can be arranged also.

Tutoring Experience:

I am relatively new to teaching the harmonica however it is my strong experience of playing the instrument and dedicated self-study that has enabled me to offer an expert knowledge as a teacher. I am friendly, patient and passionate to share my knowledge of Blues music on the harmonica.

I offer affordable rates to reflect this, especially in this time of hardship for all.

For every set of 3 hours booked I will offer an additional free 30 minute lesson to simply recap progress or to go through questions you may have.
Your first lesson will also be reduced as a further incentive to find out a bit more about what learning the harmonica means…

Tutoring Approach:

Upon us completing each lesson, I will then email you audio clips tailored to the content of our lesson each time, so you can play along and revise as homework to nurture your development.
I also add easy-to-read hand written tablature to accompany the audio clips.

Blues music is traditionally learnt by "listening" rather than "written" however in context of a music lesson for a beginner, I touch on basic music theory aspects initially and lay some foundation for the student to be able to later revisit our lesson.

The core of my teaching however is based on easy tablature of the notes played with audio clips as well, so that the student regardless of the age group or level, can easily refer back when studying after each lesson.
