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
Written by blues artist Kevin Burt and piloted throughout the U.S. by over 300 students and 7 teachers, this six-lesson method is designed to introduce students grades 5-8 to playing basic cross-harp blues harmonica. The sequential, easy to understand and visually appealing curriculum covers breathing exercises, short familiar melodies, 4-part harmonica ensemble based on the 12-bar Blues. No previous experience with harmonica is necessary for teachers or students. Unique color-coded notation system, sound zones, special effects words, a digital download link for 24 play-along tracks, and other innovative teaching tools help students experience very quick success on this classic, extremely affordable, cross-cultural instrument. Includes Hohner West Music translucent harmonica. *Please note: This 2nd edition now includes a link in the book to download the music that was previously on the CD.
