Here I am with my guitar, harmonica, and happy red shoes chatting about the next tune with folklorist and banjo teacher David Brose at John C Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC (2012).
If having fun playing music sounds like a dream,
I want you to know that it’s 100% possible for you.
I know because I’ve been exactly where you are now.
I’ve worked my way through the obstacles,
from the first time I touched the harmonica
to playing it on stages from Hawaii to France.
And I have created a proven system to
help you be able to play music on the harmonica, too –
and have fun doing it!
Beginning Harmonica 1 is a self-paced program that teaches you how to play along with three well-known American folk songs: Row Row Row Your Boat, My Home's Across the Blue Ridge Mountains, and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
Unlike other instruction you may find, no previous musical knowledge or experience is needed.
Over the course of 21 assignments, you will learn musical terms and skills that will apply no matter what other songs, instruments, or styles of music you may ever want to play.
You also will be able to use what you learn to play along with other songs -
without rote memorization or pieces of paper.
