What better way to develop beginning musical skills than learning to play the harmonica? Harmonica Horizon will cover basic skills, 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. If you have questions about an appropriate instrument, feel free to e-mail the instructor directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
