What will I be doing in this class?
How cool is the harmonica? VERY. Here at The Indytute we favour instruments that are totally portable. Just slip a harmonica into your top pocket or clutch bag and practise where ever you go. Joff Watkins has learnt from the best and played with best. Come to our Harmonica classes and learn the three B’S - breath, bars and Blues. First you learn how to hold the harmonica. How to play a single note, learn the Harmonica ‘Train’ (includes syllables for train sound, and train whistle). Learn a 3 Blues riff and improvise with a Blues jam - everyone gets a 4 bar solo (panic). Practise chords as well as single notes and have a crack at ‘When the Saints Come Marching in’.
Do I need to know anything?
No, this is for total beginners. Just remember to breathe.
