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. Students from Summer 2017 will be given additional melodies and expand their techniques learned over the summer.
Note: Students will need to purchase a ten-hole, diatonic harmonica in the key of C.
Fee: $10 registration fee; $102 tuition; $78 if enrolled in individual lessons at Hochstein. (Fee as of Fall 2019)
