We can learn the basics, how to find what key to play in, tongue/hand techniques, tabs, and even how to play guitar at the same time!

Intermediate level gets into bends, stutters, hand cupping, and more.

I have some experience with cross harp, please expect to learn basic theory along with it if you're willing to learn it, too!

Harmonica:
A free reed wind instrument used worldwide in many musical genres, notably in blues, American folk music, classical music, jazz, country, and rock and roll. There are many types of harmonica, including diatonic, chromatic, tremolo, octave, orchestral, and bass versions. A harmonica is played by using the mouth, lips and tongue to direct air into or out of one or more holes along a mouthpiece. Behind each hole is a chamber containing at least one reed. A harmonica reed is a flat elongated spring typically made of brass, stainless steel, or bronze, which is secured at one end over a slot that serves as an airway. When the free end is made to vibrate by the player's air, it alternately blocks and unblocks the airway to produce sound. The lessons will consist of starting at the very beginning with the basics of first learning how to breathe and make tones through multiple holes and then getting a sound from one hole. We will learn how blowing in or out creates different ...

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.
John J Conlon
Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Harmonica, also known as the "Mouth Harp" is a very easy, practical and fun little instrument for all ages! You can take this little gem of an instrument wherever you go.

We will start with the very basics of how to hold the harmonica correctly, proper mouth position, how to achieve a nice, clean sound when blowing and drawing (putting it simply, drawing your breath back in, inhaling.)

The items you will need is a Harmonica in the key of C and a Lesson Book.
Harmonicas come in various keys, but the key you will need to learn when signing up in the TakeLessons platform will be the KEY OF C.

Once you have signed up, either for yourself, or a child, I will then send you an email with the link where you can purchase the lesson book that we will
work out of. Once you have a good foundation and are comfortable playing the harmonica, we can then determine what genre or style of music you would like to play. There are books that have a nice selection of songs that cover bluegrass, ...

More than 10 years ago, I told a good friend that learning to play the dulcimer was on my bucket list. He made my beautiful instrument and said " now you need to learn to play". 2021 is my year! Fortunately, Rhonda has become my instructor and I look forward to the weekly lessons. Her enthusiasm for teaching, her extensive knowledge, and many years of experience have given me the confidence that I can learn .

The chromatic harmonica was my first instrument which I taught myself by ear at the age of 5, so all ages are welcome in my harmonica class. The harmonica is perfect for playing melodies. I can play "blues harp" as well which is also a lot of fun and has a different kind of expressive feel with the bending. Whichever one you're interested in learning, I can help you hit the ground sprinting with one of the most portable and enjoyable instruments out there! It's all about the feeling and the fun of it! Ready to dive in?

He is a solid and easy going teacher------able to figure out the learning speed of his student and go at that pace. He is just what I want. Have to take a break, here in December due to going out of town. Will return to him in January, 2022 for more lesson time, if he will take me after the delay. A very good choice! JC
Gio A.
Just had my first lesson. He had very good pointers and adapts quickly to your musical knowledge. Mark also has great philosophies about music and life in general. Looking forward to next lesson!
Skylar
This was my first lesson with Mark, but it was easy to talk to him, he teaches more of what’s usable, rather than just hours of theory, and gave me a goal to work towards for next time. He’s going to be a great fit for me and what I’m looking for

Blues Harp, Americana.

¡Hablo Español!

I Teach All Ages, at All Levels!

In addition to having almost 20 books published on the subject of theory and technique, I also have many many professional recordings of me playing harmonica that you can listen to online anytime!

I have been a pro musician all my adult life, teaching thousands of students over a span of more than three decades!

I use the Zoom app for live interactive lessons from the comfort of your home.

You certainly have many options available regarding choosing an instructor, but I have to assume that you would like to hire the most qualified teacher to guide you on the journey through the wonderful world of music.

Everyone moves further, much faster, and is more likely to stay engaged by learning from a master teacher with decades of real-world professional experience to share.

I will give you what you need to know, in order to take you where you want to go!

I absolutely loved taking lessons from James. I was just coming off of a long break from acting when I found him, and I’m so thankful that I did. He gave me the confidence boost that I needed to push onward in my training. Since he has experience in the industry, he was able to tell me (truthfully) what I need to expect when my career takes off someday. That aside, we read through screenplays, did some accent work, improved a bit before every class, and talked about the power of positivity/confidence. I learned a little bit of everything from him. If you’re looking to get started on your path to an acting career, James is definitely your guy! He’ll do whatever he can to prepare you for your crazy journey through the industry.

Where do I start, Mr. Walsh is an amazing coach and even better person. His classes extend beyond what he is teaching you, with life insights and showing you how to free your mind and be more positive on a daily basis.
