Week 1 in a series of 10

A new ten week course in harpistry! Start from scratch, continue to the next level, or brush up on your skills and repertoire for intermediate and advanced players. This popular course has something for every aspiring harmonicist.

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.

Beginners learn the fundamental techniques and some simple blues, country and folk tunes (with a bit of Beethoven thrown in). 

For those who want to build on their technique, build confidence, take their playing to the next level and learn new accessible tunes we have extended our Beginners Continued class for another term.

Players who have progressed to an intermediate and advanced level will learn more complicated tunes and techniques (such as note-bending) and some aspects of music theory.

This great 10 week course is led by the renowned blues and Irish traditional harmonica virtuoso and teacher Mat Walklate. Mat plays with acoustic blues band Depot and the Irish traditional group, The House Devils. 

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