I was so fortunate to work with Kevin Burt as he developed this phenomenal general music classroom harmonica method. Over the years I've had so many teachers tell me that this method literally changed their teaching and changed the lives of their students. You will never regret bringing this easy, accessible, fun curriculum into your upper elementary/middle school classroom! - Melissa
