This 4-week course at the North Sydney Community Centre gives the opportunity to learn different skills each week and practise them with new songs in each class. Start at the basics – a nursery rhyme – so that you don’t have to worry about the song, just concentrate on the harmonica. Finish playing one of the best-known blues songs ever – Hoochie Coochie Man. You will need to practise each day in between the classes in order to become proficient – about 30 minutes a day minimum. But who can stop at 30 minutes?! You will need a Diatonic Harmonica (often called a Blues Harp) in the Key of C. I recommend (and can supply at cost) the Hohner Special 20 – a robust, inexpensive, professional instrument.
Trained in Harmonica by the great Jim Conway, Matthew has been teaching almost as long as he can remember. As a multi-instrumentalist, he understands what the harmonica can do for a band as well as solo playing. Since he was originally trained as a guitar player, Matthew is able to accompany the students as they master the harmonica skills through the course.
