I have marked this course 'all levels' because even beginners will learn something about bending. I have met 'experts' who can't do this technique as well so I think anyone will benefit - even total beginners although I recommend taking the course listed below first please.

Recently I wrote a course on bending notes and it turned out to be part one of two. I only covered the first part of note bending and this new course here explores the other three types of bending. The original is called:

'The easy way to bend notes on HARMONICA - yes you can do it!'

In this new course we explore how to achieve blow bending, over blowing and over drawing.

I will show you how it works and how it's done.

Also why it's done.

It should at the very least start you off and open your eyes to the possibilities of advanced bending even if you don't manage all of it immediately.

If you have a tune or subject that you would like me to teach please message me.

Ben Hewlett is a very experienced music teacher who is able to be very patient and methodical. Each lecture will introduce you to the next group of notes – usually just 4 new notes and that's it.

This method is very easy for you to pick up the tunes as they are repeated over and over again until you have got it. You can even re-run the video if you find it useful.

Take one course and learn your favourite tune. The try another. Remember you can always get your money back if you wish but otherwise you have lifetime access to the course.

Imagine how amazing it will feel when you whip out your harmonica and play this tune – your friends and family will carry you shoulder high in triumph. Hopefully they don't carry you out of town and dump you in the river, but hey, swimming's good as well.

The health benefits of playing the harmonica are well documented – google it. Your lungs get exercised, your lung capacity increases, aerobic movement is good for you, playing music makes you smarter they say.

You will have fun on your own and with your friends, and more oxygen to the brain will make you think you are having a good time so it's all good.
