What better way to develop beginning musical skills than learning to play the harmonica? Harmonica Horizon will cover basic skills for playing this pocket-sized, portable instrument, including: playing scales/simple melodies; single-note, harmony, and chordal playing; “cross harp” or “second position” for blues; note-bending; playing in minor keys; and beginning techniques for vibrato and trills. Additional topics include theory/chord structure as applied to the harmonica as well as harmonica selection and care.
Note: Students will need to purchase a ten-hole, diatonic harmonica in the key of C. Students will need to have their own instruments. If you have questions about an appropriate instrument, feel free to email the instructor directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
