Harmonica Classes



It's a big musical experience that fits in your back pocket!

Our classes are divided into two main tracks based on the two most popular methods for playing the harmonica. Both are easy to pick up and are used by professional players, but beginner students usually focus on one method to start off.

Start with Chicago Blues Harp 1 if you want to learn harmonica through the music and traditions of the Chicago blues masters. Chicago Blues Harp classes prepare students for Joe Filisko's Blues Harmonica Performance and other ensemble playing.

Start with Harmonica 1 & Repertoire if you want to develop your skills in a variety of popular genres including blues, folk, pop, traditional, country, gospel, and more. This track is great for current guitarists who want to accompany themselves and for fans of our weekly open jams, as well as brand new students.
