About the course

Udemy's BEST SELLING ultimate and complete harmonica course - with over 17,000 students.

No harmonica experience? No problem, I'll walk you through nice and slow.

Did you ever fool around with a harmonica as a kid?

Would you like to learn to play the harmonica better now?

Do you play guitar, piano, ukulele or are you a singer and want to add harmonica into your act?

Do you want an instrument that's easy to pick up, store and carry?

Did you inherit a harmonica and want to pay respect to the original owner??

Where you inspired by Bob Dylan, Sonny Terry, Little Walter, Mick Jagger?

Would you like to play in a church, campfire, band or jam session?

Do you think harmonica will help with COPD or other health issues?

Is this a retirement 'bucket-list' project?

If you answered yes to any of those who are in the right place.

This course will help you become a great harmonica player. All you need to do is follow the lectures in order plus some practice and you will start to feel a surge of confidence as you see your skills increasing daily.

This will be exciting, fun, and challenging – I think you will thoroughly enjoy it!

I will be there in the room with you walking you through step by step and holding your hand. You can contact me any time on BenHewlett@me.com or through this site. You can even call me on Messenger, WhatsApp or Skype.

Read the reviews to see what other people think, here are a few:

"Super clear explanation; he taught me more thus far than any book I've tried yet. Two thumbs up!"

"I tried many harmonica beginner courses but this one is the best of all."

"Ben is amazing. He knows how to teach. Highly recommended course."

"This is the best online music lesson course I have taken. Ben is an awesome instructor! Very knowledgeable and has a great style of teaching."

I think people recognise my passion for the harmonica. I’m not someone who plays bass, guitar, piano, drums and sings, records, gigs…I just (mostly) teach harmonica.

Sure I perform sometimes, gig with friends, go to jams, do corporate harp demonstrations but MOSTLY I focus on playing, learning and teaching harmonica.

So if you have a Hohner harmonica, a blues harmonica, hohner special 20, a chromatic harmonica (ok, not that one) a blues harp, a hohner big river, a harmonica holder, a harmonica set…you can start to play now.

Give me a shout if you need any help please.
