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 ...

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!!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

I learned how to play harmonica in Los Angeles while headlining my own blues band. I am no pro but I can play easier harmonica solos well and love to teach the basics to beginners. I have played for the last 18 years or so and have taught singers who wish to add this skill to their bag o tricks!

Excellent coach. Trained well. My son learn a lot from class and has been using his new moves at home. He loved the chess.
Marisha K.
My son is learning piano and chess with josh. We live in Brooklyn and he’s coming from nj. He’s always on time (even in a thunderstorm)!!! He’s patient but firm with my 5 year old son who’s extremely fidgety and at times absent minded! He’s a very by the book kind of guy and ensures that my son understands the foundation before moving ahead!

Stephen, is the first guitar instructor where I was able to successfully follow along with him and play an entire song from start to finish. I felt like a real guitarist! He's fun, supportive and has an upbeat positive attitude. He'll be patient with you and meet you where you're at musically.

"I already LOVE Ronny as my guitar instructor and from playing with him I knew how talented he was with harmonica. So I decided to start lessons with him for just that. I also have my best friend taking harmonica lessons with him! His positive support and analogies connect the dots when it comes to learning a new instrument. I highly recommend Ronny as a teacher! Humble, talented and genuine."

"Winslow is an excellent teacher and I feel fortunate to be learning from him. He is a harmonica master, both in his playing and in his in deep knowledge of the mechanics of the harp and how to play it. He has literally written books on learning to play (Harmonica for Dummies, Blues Harmonica for Dummies).
What I like about our lessons is that he's a great listener. He can hear where I need work and he offers not just one but often several exercises and riffs that address the issue. In addition, he knows the blues, the players, the songs, and the harp riffs for reference. To top it off his manner is light and warm. I feel honored to be learning from him."
