I really enjoy  giving lessons for all  levels! In the last years I have taught hundreds of harmonica students around the world. 

It´s not necessary that you know how to read music: we will work with a very simple tab system and you´ll be able to play songs and melodys from #1 Lesson. The idea is to learn the different techniques of the instrument (clean sound, tone, bendings, vibratos, overblows, tongue blocking, etc.) trough working with songs and some exercises, always focusing on the styles of music that you want to play.

My goal is to give you some tools that you can use to develop your own sound and style of playing. 

If you have any questions please write me a private message and I´ll be happy to answer.
