Course Outline

This isn’t just a harmonica course – it’s Rock School! Because at the end of the six week course, you get up and jam with a four-piece blues band at an inner-city bar’s Musos' Night!

Yes, appearing with your fellow-pupils as The Harmonicats, you’ll play three numbers alongside seasoned musicians at El Rocco Bar. That’s where you go for the final class of this dynamic course, which gets you playing the pocket-sized 10-hole harmonica in true blues style.

The fun starts from your first lesson, when your teacher Tony Maguire gets you playing simple blues riffs within the first 15 minutes as he accompanies you and your classmates on guitar.
