Welcome to Harmonica123!
A premium music education site for all levels, focused on 10 hole blues harmonica.
I offer various opportunities for the learner to connect with me in a manner that suits you best. I always strive to make lessons enjoyable and straightforward. The most customized and personal experience that I offer is private Skype or FaceTime lessons and on these video sessions, I work with students in a variety of ways: improving technique, drills and exercises, song studies, position work to explore various scales, understanding 12 bar blues, rhythm playing and more. The newest way in which I connect with harmonica students all over the
world is through my blues harmonica webinars called “The Global Blues Harmonica Summit”. These live online educational workshops allow students to log in on their own computer and connect with the top blues harmonica instructors and players on the planet. You also get access to the recorded sessions when it’s over. Harmonica123 also streams educational videos that are focused sessions lasting anywhere from 40-60 minutes typically and will get you on track. The topics are focused around technique, song studies, artist interviews,
teaching sessions, and conceptual approaches to your playing. Once you know what topic(s) you are interested in, you can purchase access to those particular video sessions. I also offer downloadable blues focused video and audio instruction; as well as backing tracks. Finally, I offer a variety of in person harmonica workshops around the U.S., Canada and now in Scotland each year. They are typically geared towards intermediate level players.
“I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying ALL the classes that I can attend. The recordings are most helpful also. After listening more than once I hear or pick something out that I missed. I can tell I have made a little improvement in two weeks. Only two years under my belt with this instrument. That’s so amazing. Thanks Ronnie for your hard work and AWESOME way of teaching. Keep up the good work.”
