I'LL PROVE HOW GOOD MY COURSES ARE - IF YOU DON'T LIKE THEM YOU CAN GET YOUR MONEY BACK - ZERO RISK!
I have been teaching diatonic harmonica professionally since 1996 and playing since 1985.
You could say it's a 'hand to mouth' existence but it's a whole lot better than working; and that's been my full time job since 1996.
My job is the best - I get to meet and inspire people from all walks of life and all ages. It turns out ANYONE can learn to play a harmonica!
I teach harmonica 121 at home, in schools, on-line here and YT, night schools, harmonica festivals in the USA Europe and UK, cruise ships, team-building, Singapore Uni, Glastonbury festival...are you bored yet? Me too!
If you can breathe you can play the harmonica - if not, forget about it, it's not for you.
My youngest student was 4 when she started and my oldest was 85 when he began. Now it's your turn to learn.
HarpsCool.co.uk is where my team and I teach children in schools. We teach around 400 children every week and we work in partnership with Hohner, the brand leader for harmonicas since 1896.
My work with the harmonica over 20 years has led me to become Chairman of the National Harmonica League - did you know that's the top harmonica job in the UK?
I love the look on the faces of North Americans when they find out I am Chairman of the NHL!
I'm so confident you will love my courses and lessons that I'm offering this PERSONAL GUARANTEE.
I don't know about you but I don't like risk - especially when spending money. So I'm offering you a 100% iron clad money-back guarantee backed up by Curious.com if you don't like what you've purchased.
The people I have been taught by are the best harmonica teachers in the world. They include - google them - Howard Levy (one week intensive course) Joe Filisko, Paul Lamb, Brendan Power, Adam Gussow, Charlie McCoy, Dave Barrett, Richard Sleigh and many more.
