STOP PRESS: Beginners classes are full for this term but we still have places on the Intermediate/ Advanced course. Please keep an eye open for a new beginners class after the Easter break!

Start from scratch or brush up on your skills and blow the winter blues away!

Easy to learn, fun to play, cheap to get started on and widely used in many styles from folk to classical; with a Hamonica you carry a world of music in your pocket. Dispel the myths, reveal the mysteries learn the fundamental techniques and some simple blues, country and folk tunes (with a bit of Beethoven thrown in). More advanced players will learn more complicated tunes and techniques (such as note-bending) and aspects of music theory.

These great 10 week courses are led by the renowned blues and Irish traditional harmonica virtuoso and teacher Mat Walklate. Mat plays and records with blues bands The Moochers and Depot and Irish traditional bands The Sturdy Beggars & Shannagh. His new album ‘Cold in April’ is out now.

This course is open to all ages and abilities and will be great fun.  Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
