Want in-person harmonica lessons
December 7, 2011 9:42 AM   Subscribe

I'd like to learn how to play the harmonica, in person. Where can I find a teacher in the Boston area?

I've seen all the tutorials available for download but I know I don't have the patience for that (thus a live instructor).

I know nothing about music, so ideally patience with a truly green beginner including some basic music theory would be ideal.

Also given my total lack of a musical foundation am I crazy to attempt this?

Harmonica is a great place to start, musically. There are probably better ways, but I remember seeing flyers up for music lessons in the businesses on Mass Ave and Boylston near Berklee. Depending on your location, that might be a good place to start. If that's not convenient, is there a store near you that sells instruments, including harmonicas? They often have flyers and/or advice.

What about craigslist? You might have luck searching there.

What's your ideal genre? Country? blues? folk? I realize it doesn't seem super-important at the beginning level, but, for example, I know a guy south of the city, but he plays Irish reels. If you want to rock out, he wouldn't be much help.

Passim runs Beginner Harmonica classes a couple times a year; more information from their usual instructor.
