Tim is a fantastic teacher - he brought me from being unable to play single notes and knowing nothing about music theoery to having fun playing both blues and classic rock riffs and understanding major and minor scales in just 5 hours of lessons.

Harmonica Lessons in Los Angeles, CA

How amazing would it be to have a musical instrument in your pocket that you can pull out and play almost anywhere to pass the time, or entertain friends and family? When you sign up for harmonica lessons in Los Angeles, CA, that possibility becomes a reality!

Also known as a French harp or mouth organ, there are several types of harmonicas to choose from. Chromatic, orchestral, bass, diatonic, octave and tremolo are the most popularly used harmonicas today, with the primary difference being the type of sound you’d like to achieve with your musical endeavors.

The Benefits of Taking Harmonica Classes in Los Angeles

There’s no shortage of jazz and blues fans here in Los Angeles, and the harmonica is almost always a welcomed addition to these types of musical groups.

...

After all, great harmonica players like Lee Oskar and Gary Allegretto found their place in the music scene right here in LA—a city of 4 million residents that exudes a passion for the entertainment industry.

In fact, there are countless opportunities for musicians in the City of Angels including music degrees from USC Thornton School of Music for serious players. However, if you’re seeking private harmonica classes near you ranging from beginner to professional level, there is no shortage of exceptional instructors in and around Los Angeles County.

Once you feel comfortable with your harmonica skills and want to perform in front of others, this vibrant city has plenty of opportunities, such as open mic nights at the Industry Cafe and Jazz Club or the World Stage Performance Gallery. Feel more comfortable playing outdoors? Head to Griffith Park or Pershing Square, where jam sessions and soloists are fairly common.

One great way to get to and from harmonica lessons in Los Angeles, CA is to use the widespread public transportation system. While the bus system is a good choice during non-peak hours, the Metro Rail train is by far the most reliable way to get around town in a timely fashion.
