Ben Hewlett bio
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 have Celtic music courses for you.

What you get: By the end of this 12 lecture course you will know how to play blues simply with a band, hold your harmonica in different ways to get different effects, how to breathe in a harmonica way, make some cool sounds, play 12 bar blues, understand the history of the harmonica, play five train sounds, play rhythm harp, understand the chords on your harmonica, start picking out single notes, learn about timing and rhythms, play a scale of C, learn about playing in a band and much more. I will also give you a Udemy coupon at the end of this to give you half price off the next course I think you should go on.
Target audience: This is for people who have never played harmonica at all and people who have only started dabbling with the harmonica recently. But will serve as a refresher and a ‘door-opener’ to get you back into it if you played a while back – so really it’s for everyone!
Requirements: All you need is a 10 hole diatonic harmonica in C. Just get one from your local music store or we can mail one to you via SonnyboysMusicstore.co.uk. The Mojo is recomended for Blues and the Sonnyboys Special is a good allround harmonica. Hohner harmonicas are also recommended but any will also get the job done.
