  • I finally learned how to play!!

    As reviewed by Eddie on 12/20/2006

    I always wanted to learn the harmonica. I liked the idea of being able to carry a little harmonica in my pocket or briefcase. I tried a couple of different books but never really got it. When I saw this book, I figured if this guy was a school teacher, he must have a method so I tried it. I got it!! The book went slowly through all the basics and I learned how to hold the harmonica and play single notes. I also learned how to play alot of different songs plus I can NOW READ MUSIC! It's easy. I love the CD because I can set it up just to play the drums along with me. My friend plays guitar and the book shows her what chords to play for the songs. We are really making music :) This book is the best one. I'm having fun and I recommend it to everyone.

  • Excellant starter text

    As reviewed by Robert Smith on 10/28/2008

    This book was developed for music appreciation classes. Accordingly, it provides instruction in basic music theory, which is useful for beginners. However, even those with some musical background will appreciate the structured format that introduces each note of the harmonica, provides excercises for reinforcement, then simple tunes using the notes already learned. The ability to make music almost from the start provides a sence of accomplishment and incentive to continue. The accompanying CD provides opportunity for further development by allowing the student to play along on many of the songs. The only criticism I have is that the author wrote down a few incorrect notes in some of the songs, but the observant student will soon figure it out. Potential purchasers of this book should be aware it is structured exclusively for a 10-hole harmonica pitched in the key of C. The author recommends the Hohner Blues Band model.
