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 seven teachers, this six-lesson method is designed to introduce students grades 5-8 to playing basic cross-harp blues harmonica. Using a color-coded notation system and simple concepts like special effects words, this curriculum requires no previous experience with the harmonica for teachers or students. The sequential, easy-to-understand, and visually appealing curriculum covers short, familiar melodies, breathing exercises, and 4-part harmonica ensemble songs based on the 12-bar Blues.
