Join our fun harmonica community
Harp Surgery’s workshops are all about connecting with other harp players, sharing music, learning songs, asking questions and developing key technical skills. We do blues of course, but we also explore a wide range of musical styles with a reasonable splash of music theory. We’re here to offer up solutions to your specific developmental needs during our group sessions, but you can also book 1:1 coaching if you wish to fast track your learning.

    Thank you for inviting me to your Harp Surgery zoom lessons. You taught me to determine song key with a single harp in C. The ‘hands-on’ approach, through video instruction, engaging multiple senses, allowed me to grasp the concept in a mere 60 seconds. The exercises were challenging, to say the least, providing the tools to progress at our own pace and achieve an advanced level.

    Looking forward to continued improvement playing the harmonica and creating new relationships through our common interest.

    All the best,

    Hi Maurice, that’s really great feedback. I like to keep things varied, with a sense of pace, but you are always feel free to butt in. We can also review items and introduce new topics to match your needs. It’s great to learn from each other too! Richard :0)

    Hi Jeff, I’m getting my regular school groups back and running after two academic years in the wilderness. Once I know my new timetable, I’ll be ready to resume our online sessions. Thank you for your continued interest. I hope to bring further news very soon. Richard
