Classroom Harmonica Course
This is a book I wrote for my harmonica class. I wasn't going to upload it until the end of the year, however, some teachers want it now. I wish I could have just bought it...sheesh. It took over 3 solid years to complete.
This file is 152 MB. It's a massive, comprehensive resource. It could take some time to download.
What you get:
1) An amazing book that is the entire course from beginning to end. It's a no-brainer. If you know your theory, you just need to show up and have fun teaching.

Beginning Harmonica - Preview
There are some pretty special things about it. For instance all the bars are numbered, That will help you navigate your students through the songs and exercises. In fact, there are double numbered bars for the repeats....you don't see that anywhere else. That's because I programed my own music software for it. No software on planet earth does it.
2) Graphics I have found through my years of teaching, make it very easy for students to understand concepts quickly. They "get it" right away. They may not be able to play it right then and there, but they understand it.
3) A Teacher Key to guide you through how I teach the course in 10 weeks...sometimes 9 weeks.
4) Over 160 classroom practice mp3's....yes 160. I use them all: hook a cord from my computer to a small practice amp, adjust the speaker balance on the computer and you're "good to go".
Please read the description before you buy it:
There are no lessons per say in this book. The music and graphics are so clearly written, there's never been a need for them. The music is the lesson. I might write some short supplemental theory-lesson on the white board for my own classes, (just to clarify)....but that's about all I've had to do. I'm sure with your background in music it will be the same for you.
The material does the all work, but it doesn't "get in your way" as a teacher. That's how I like it; Everyone's engaged.
