I took up harmonica when I started songwriting, about five years ago. Inspired by Bob Dylan, the Beatles, and other pop/rock acts, I incorporated diatonic harp playing into my original songs. I later picked up blues style playing, improvisation, and other techniques. I'm happy to share my skills and techniques with harmonica players of all skill levels.

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

Eric was very willing to work with me on my concerns with the last lesson, and alter this lessons to fit my needs. He was also very perceptive in where I am at in and where I would like to be on my understanding for growth in certain areas and catered the lesson accordingly, yet still stayed on track.

I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

About Doyle
Hello, my name is Doyle B. and I am eager to help you reach your goals! I've been teaching private lessons since 1992 and have loved helping my students win competitions at the state level, learn how to advance rapidly on their instrument, and fall in love with making music. I have 3 earned degrees from Pensacola Christian College (B.S. in Music Ed., 1992), Hobe Sound Bible College (A.A., 1993) and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Master of Church Music, 1996). I have experience teaching all of the band instruments, violin, guitar, and piano. I'm an enthusiastic, upbeat person who greatly enjoys working with people of all ages. I presently employed at Hobe Sound Bible College and Christian Academy. I presently have 4 students in China and the Turks and Caicos Islands that I teach using Skype. Fortunately, I have a few openings
in my schedule to teach any one who is serious about excelling on his/her instrument. I look forward to helping you reach your potential.

I've had a lifetime of experience teaching private lessons on the harmonica and have the skills it takes to help you through the process of learning to play in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. I've been a full time musician my entire adult life teaching and performing on stage, the studio and the classroom.

About Clint
The Harmonica is my specialty as a professional performer and teacher. It's not my 2nd or 3rd instrument, but my primary one that I've spent a lifetime mastering. I've been teaching, performing and recording on the harmonica for over 30 years and I'm an expert on both the chromatic harmonica and the ten hole diatonic "Blues Harp". I work with absolute beginners to the most advanced professional level in a wide variety of styles. My lessons are tailored to suit your individual needs.

I provide a clear, concise, proven path to success at playing the harmonica. I focus on the most important aspects at mastering the instrument. We also have fun as well!

About Tim
Unlike other teachers that teach multiple instruments and add harmonica to their list, Tim sole focus and expertise is the harmonica!

Tim began playing harmonica at the age of thirteen. In addition to the guidance and nurturing he received from his musical family, Tim studied with harmonica greats Cary Bell and Jerry Portnoy. He also completed courses in music while earning his bachelor’s degree with honors from Kent State University in Ohio. In addition to harmonica, Tim is a fine singer, songwriter and guitarist. An expert blues player, he is also accomplished in the folk, rock and country genres. Before moving to Nashville in 2015, Tim was regarded as one of the finest harmonica players in New England.

Tim's method for teaching harmonica is enjoyable and logical. I can honestly say that my tone, technique and overall facility on the harp have improved so much in just a few weeks of working with him (after a year or so of trying to figure things out on my own via the internet). He knows just how to convey in words -- in a way that you can understand and implement -- exactly what you need to be doing with your mouth, lungs, etc. to help you improve your sound. As such his instruction can provide a great foundation for playing in any genre (blues, pop, country etc.). Also he's super laid back so that's another plus.

I always look forward to my lessons with Tim. He's a great guy and a tremendous instructor. His sense of humor keeps the hour fun and engaging.
That is not to say that he is not constantly challenging you. But he does it in a way all great teachers do; he communicates efficiently and effectively. Hence, it's pretty easy, if you put in the time, to make incredible strides with your harp playing. Highly recommend signing up!

My 5 star rating is not given lightly. I am now retired after almost 40 years teaching in a school for special needs children. Tim does it all right. A great guy with a laid-back, easy way. Tim is very supportive and will ease any anxiety you may have. He understands the process of learning and knows how to teach! Tim makes things fun, he will challenge you at your level. He’ll give you riffs and drills that quickly link to songs, so in no time you’re playing. Tim has all the skills and tricks and will make them accessible to you. He will help you key in on what’s important to keep you moving in your process.

Keep your harp handy, listen to Tim, give it 10 minutes 3x a day, and you’ll be “killing it” in no time. But, it’s all about the process, and Tim makes it fun! Look no further.
My only regret is that I am unable to give Tim 6 stars!

I specialize playing harmonica in a various combination of modern music genres. I can teach you everything you need to know to get going on Blues, Rock and Folk within a few lessons. With a little dedication I can show you all my tricks to playing in different keys over Jazz, Pop and even E.D.M.

About Gonzalo
The harmonica is my whole world. I first witness the harmonica live at a Festival, I was in awe. I waited after the harmonica player got off stage and right then and there asked about lessons, I spent 5 years training with that man as my blues harmonica mentor. I'd like to share the big magic of this little instrument with you. You'll be surprised how with a bit of practice and patience we can quickly get you from the basics to making fun, musical, expressive sounds along with your favorite tunes. I presently play a variety of traditional americana music and experiment with more modern styles of alternative and electronic dance music, playing the harmonica acoustically and through computer software.

I take pride in customizing my teaching techniques for each individual student. Guiding them to a place where playing music on the harmon
ica can be stress free and a joy. Playing harmonica has always been the highlight of my day, I love showing others how to achieve the same.

As a fellow/professional musician in San Diego, I'd have to say that Gonzalo is one of the premier harmonica players in the area. He has a diverse background in music, understands and can perform a multitude of styles, works well with others, is charismatic, and has a great ear! As a teacher, he tailors lessons to the individual student based on his/her goals and background, but most importantly, he loves music, and his enthusiasm rubs off on his students and others around him. If you want to learn the harmonica, Gonzalo is the man!

Great teacher! I've been dabbling with harp for many years, but I couldn't believe how quickly I improved when I started lessons with Joe. We worked on all aspects of harp: the importance of playing tastefully, and of not playing; how to stand, how to breathe; technical aspects, like proper use of mics and what amps work for harp. After just a few lessons my band mates were stunned at my improvement. I've already recomended him to another player.

I've worked with Joe in our band Night Watch Paradox since 2014. He is a consummate band mate and amazingly versatile harmonica player. We play a wide variety of original songs drawing from many musical genres. Joe is able to find the perfect harmonica part to suit each song, whether it's a wailing solo in a blues harp style, or a tasteful and haunting melody on a chromatic harp.

If you're looking for an experienced and accomplished harmonica teacher who will show you the basics, but then take your playing beyond the usual and predictable harmonica tunes, then you should give Joe a call.
