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 ...

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

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!!

I am new to playing the flute, self-taught for 8 months. Cooper is very personable and I think he spotted my weaknesses quickly. He was very encouraging and gave me a mixture of exercises working on the beginnings of listening and playing with another musician as well as fingering. He is going to get some theory in as well, so that’s hitting all of what is essential for me to move forward.
Cooper B.
Cooper is kind and encoraging and helped my son work through a difficult audition piece. He really related well with my son and made him feel proud of his abilities and skills. I would be glad to recommend Cooper.

Joshua was very patient and nice. He worked at my son's pace and helped him feel more confident. We had a great experience!

Great as always!

Had to stop the class within 19 minutes because:
a) he showed a plain chess board with no numbers and letters and was forcing my kid to tell him coordinates/spaces as letters/numbers which my son has never learned before,
b) more importantly, he was extremely impatient with my son- when my son made a move but then immediately changed his mind (he's 6), Josh would be grunting in the background

Not the kind of impatience I would expect with a teacher that claims to be able to teach kids. When I jumped in and said I don't think this is working, he angrily said, "FINE!" NEVER AGAIN.

Andy has been a lifesaver during the pandemic! Before working with Andy, I felt like music was off limits to me. I went from zero experience to being competent in multiple instruments. I started with banjo and later went into acoustic guitar, electric guitar, harmonica, and a DAW.

His flexible teaching style was responsive to my musical growth and interests. As we went, Andy sprinkled in some easy to understand music theory. I learned a lot of my favorite songs (including several out of the mainstream). He worked with me to adapt songs written for guitar to banjo. He also helped me to pick quality instruments that were right for me and my budget.

Highly recommend!

"Even though I've played for many years I've never had training in the basic foundation of harmonica play and these are the things we concentrated on: breath control, articulation, getting the most out of every exhale. Gave me some great drills to practice on and over all a great experience!"

"I am at the mid point of my 8 lessons with Randall. I began my lessons as a firm believer I didn't have a music bone in my body. I was tone deaf. I couldn't learn music.
Since I started my harmonica lessons began, Randall has helped me throw these self imposed restrictions in the trash can. I hear musical notes now. When I whistle, I can tell i'm off tune with the song. And I'm playing, although slowly, songs I love on a musical instrument. And I'm not talking Hot Cross Buns or the song about wondering what a Twinkling Star is. (Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, how I wonder what you are....you obviously know what it is, you just called it by name?!)
I'm talking Killing Me Softly, and Patience by Guns N' Roses.
Randall always infuses musical history within the lessons, which I find as valuable as the lesson themselves. During the lesson, when trying to help demonstrate how the song goes, Randall will pull out an additional instrument and play along side me. I'm literally playing music with someone, I never thought I was capable of this! It's very exciting for a musical novice.
Randall also emphasizes learning the right way, at the right speed. As I was racing through Patience with little grace, he gave me this feedback.
"Do we want to play this song like Axel Rose, heck yeah we do! And we will! But for now, lets slow it down and learn it correctly." He wants his students to learn the right way, so when it's time, they play their instrument at a high level.

My lessons have been an all encompassing educational experience.
If you are interested in learning a musical instrument, in a fun atmosphere from a passionate music professional, you should book Randall ASAP."

"Getting right to the point, Ronnie is an amazing choice for an instructor. You can't go wrong with this guy. In depth review follows this statement.

Now we can get to why this is. I am a teacher but definitely not a music teacher. However no matter what you teach there must be a defined plan with structure. Ronnie takes this to heart and provides authentic instruction with passion. The amount of video and photo examples on his bio are unparalleled, it gave me confidence in choosing him. I got see his character and enthusiasm with instruction.

I've never played Harmonica before and Ronnie laid out the foundation that I needed, in easily digestible steps, to become a skilled player on a simple looking yet complex instrument. He has provided guidance on harps to purchase, reference materials, practice schedule and artists to check out. Even with this being an online course he has been extremely attentive to what I'm doing and makes sure that I get all the technical aspects correct. Ronnie checked for my understanding on the concepts and clarified anything I was not clear on. He has been beyond what I expected from an instructor and he has made himself available for questions even outside of my lesson time. It is rare to find an instructor in any field with this passion and customer service. Thank you."
