My name is Alex P., I'm an experienced harmonica-player, teacher and singer-songwriter. I have taught in Russia since 2008, toured with my band, and have been uploading successful harmonica lessons on Youtube, getting more than 30k views. When I teach a create a program based on student's needs, we figure out his level first and then the exercises that would be useful for HIM. First part of the lesson is studying techniques and at the end we usually go through a song. I can take a student of any level.

Hello everyone. Just a quick review.i have only had one lesson with alex but the hour was remarkably positive. It's the first time I have ever played in front of someone and so was very tense and struggled to play how I normally do .but alex was very patient with me and I enjoyed the whole experience. I will definitely have other lessons and would highly recommend him.its the best chance to learn from a true master and one of the best in the world at playing harmonica. So why not especially at such a reasonable price.

Alex is a brilliant player and teacher. I went from being someone who thought they were decent to someone who knew I was pretty amateur to someone who began to learn the art for real. I have continued to learn and I am getting a lot of feedback that I playing has improved exponentially. I would recommend Alex without reservation.

After 2 years of learning on my own, I decided to take some professional harmonica lessons. Alex Paclin is a great player and teacher who has an awesome channel on youtube where he teaches harmonica. Recently i’ve seen that he also gives private lessons. after a few lessons with Alex, I can say that my progress on tone, pitch precision, banding, and overall playing is amazing. I want to recommend for all harmonica players out there that you should definitely take some lessons with Alex

Guys, just wanted to say a couple of words about Alex and his harmonica teaching initiative. I am a seasoned player with many years of experience, I have won numerous awards including UK Harmonica Player of the Year (done this twice), Baltic and Nordic Championship, and I am not even counting 2nd and 3rd places you got the picture. The bottom line is I can fucking play :) However, a few years back I realised that I wasn’t making as much progress. I wasn’t too keen to go pure jazz route and the blues guys I knew couldn’t really teach me anything. This is when I started taking lessons from Alex. Oh boy what a difference! I am not going to go into technical details here and just say this, no matter what is your goal or your level Alex can do it. The depth of musical knowledge is tremendous, lessons are easy to follow, I couldn’t be happier.

This guy is well versed in the technique and music theory. If you have any questions – just to contact him. He explains any topics very simply and easily. Highly recommend!
