О курсе

This works for all melodic instruments including voice. 

This is a musical workout, building your music muscles - like training at the musical gym.

Ear training is essential. We all want to get our playing as fluid as whistling don't we?

Recently I've been teaching call and response workshops based on ancient and modern African farmers and their field songs.

These work songs and field hollers were, and are, a way of coping with hard physical work.

Now they are embedded in many musical traditions and we are going to use this concept to increase the fluidity of our playing.

I will play a short simple phrase over one or (mostly) two bars and you copy.

That's it.

I'll repeat the phrase until I imagine you have got it.

If you find the early stages too easy either play

  • a harmony with the same rhythm
  • a phrase opposite to what I'm playing - an answer to my question
  • something which mirrors and opposes the dynamics
  • an octave above or below

If it's all too easy play through a few times, give it a great review and get yourself a refund!

But please let me know if this is too easy, about right or too hard.

I'm using 'iRealPro' in this course and all the backing tracks are freely available.

If you have any objections please let me know and I will deal with it.

Ben Hewlett is a very experienced music teacher who is able to be very patient and methodical. 

Take one course and learn your favourite tune. The try another. Remember you can always get your money back if you wish but otherwise you have lifetime access to the course.

Imagine how amazing it will feel when you whip out your harmonica and play this tune – your friends and family will carry you shoulder high in triumph. Hopefully they don't carry you out of town and dump you in the river, but hey, swimming's good as well.

The health benefits of playing the harmonica are well documented – google it. Your lungs get exercised, your lung capacity increases, aerobic movement is good for you, playing music makes you smarter they say. 

You will have fun on your own and with your friends, and more oxygen to the brain will make you think you are having a good time so it's all good.

Let me turbocharge your harmonica playing to the next level

Wow, over 36,000 students and 55,000 courses purchased - come and join us

I am your HARMONICA SPECIALIST - that is my focus. I make one brand new course every month.

Please see my copyright policy at the bottom of this page.

I always give current students a 89% discount on everything so if you take one course you are 'in my exclusive discount club' which means I will tell you every month what's new and where the discounts are.

Here's how my courses are categorised in terms of subject, purpose and content. 'Instant' courses are simple tunes; 'Learn Harmonica' is the harmonica encyclopaedia for everyone; 'Bones of the Blues', 'Get Chugging', '101 Blues Riffs', and '60 Sonny Terry Riffs' are the video taught versions of books I've written (you can google them) and the others are all about different techniques. 

I also now have three Celtic music courses for you. 

If you see a course you want but don't have the cash you can talk to me. If you are a student or not earning much I will support you with a lower price, but if you are doing ok you can pay the full price - how's that?

*Ben is the Chairman of the HarmonicaUK - formerly known as NHL - The National Harmonica League in the UK  

        *Professional Harmonica Instructor since 1996 

             *Ben qualified as CTABRSM in 2002 (Certificate of Teaching - Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) 

             *Certificate of Music Workshop Skills (Goldsmiths University of London) in 1995 

             *Accredited Diatonic Harmonica Teacher 1993 - HTAB (Harmonica Teachers Accreditation Board, supported by Lee Oskar Harmonicas, the National Harmonica League of UK and the International Harmonica Organisation). 

        *Ben's teaching business 'HarpsCool' is proud to be 'IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HOHNER'

  'Ben Hewlett is one of the UK's most respected harmonica teachers and the UK's most prolific author on harmonica tuition. He will lead you through the ins and outs of harmonica playing through a series of short video lessons. His teaching style is confident, practiced, humorous, skilful, knowledgeable and packed with information in bite sized chunks. Ben is used to teaching all over the world at prestigious harmonica festivals and is delighted to offer his services to you.' 

  'You'll know Ben better as a harmonica teacher but he also studied Irish Drum - Bodhran - and tin whistle in the 1990's with the now very famous Steafan Hannigan and Marc Moggy from Renegade Rhythms. He got so into Bodhran playing he bought an expensive tuneable drum from Marc and it works better than ever to this day. Ben has played Bodhran in bands and sessions for years and even has a Senheiser bass drum microphone embedded into his drum. Check out his Bodhran teaching on Udemy'

   

I would recommend using 'Transcribe!' for slowing down and changing the key on my backing tracks - it's free as a trial and well worth a look in my opinion. I also heard Capo is worth a look.

I have been teaching people to play harmonica since 1996 as a full time job. I have started tens of thousands on their way to play the harmonica and I can tell you - it sure beats working 

I believe I was the first person to be a full time harmonica teacher in the UK, there are still very few of us - so there's plenty of room if you want to come and join me. 

For the last few years I have been the Chairman of HarmonicaUK - formerly known as the National Harmonica League (NHL) which supports the UK harmonica players community. 

                                                                                    Much of my time is spent writing books with Paul Lennon on how to play the harmonica, there are 20 or so with loads more in the pipeline - we have so many ideas it never stops. 

 I teach children near home, and with my team at HarpsCool where the team and I give 300 children weekly harmonica lessons. 

My YT videos, and their success and feedback, are the reason I am teaching on Udemy; there are millions of hits on the youtube sites and thousands of subscribers. People are kind enough to say how clear the teaching is, and how it's helped them to understand aspects of harmonica playing - at last

I run workshops at major harmonica festivals including SPAH in the US, the Bristol International Harmonica Festival in the UK, the World Harmonica Festival in Trossingen, Germany - home of Hohner, and the Harmonica Masters Workshops also in Germany. 

I even use the harmonica in team building events for many international companies. 

Cruise Ships have been part of my teaching life since 2002 and the combination of teaching, performing and travelling is quite a blast. Who knew teaching the harmonica would take me to the Caribbean three times, Africa, Russia, Scandinavia, and Atlantic Europe. 

You will often find me performing in various venues and going to jam sessions, and I love playing with interesting groups or sitting on a number when the opportunity arises - that's one of the wonderful things about the harmonica, you can have it in your back pocket and join in with people wherever you are. 

So you are in extremely competent and safe hands, so do yourself a favour and try one of my courses - in fact have a free lecture or two to suck it and see - that's a harmonica joke by the way. 

COPYRIGHT POLICY

Firstly I need to make it clear I'm not doing this commercially - I'm not selling widgets; I'm a professional teacher trying to make a living teaching harmonica. This is not something you would do if you wanted to make a lot of money but I love doing it so I'll carry on.

If you think any copyright has been infringed please contact me immediately and I will take action.

Respect and thanks to all the artists for writing and performing these amazing songs that you want to learn.

If there was a fee for pointing students to an artist's original music (e.g. on Youtube) I would not bother teaching that music so it would not get taught and promoted by me.
