Welcome to the Ben Hewlett Harmonica School!

Firstly we’d like to thank you for joining. Whether you’re a complete beginner or you’re returning to hone your skills we are confident that like many of our students you will find Ben’s teaching style informative and easy to get to grips with.

How do the courses work?

Let us spend two minutes explaining how easy and informative you’ll find learning at PlayHarmonica.co.uk – home of the Ben Hewlett Harmonica School.

Please go to 'WATCH PROMO' above.

Please note all courses are included the membership package.

To pick the courses that suit your level, type one of these into the search box:

  • Rookie - never played before
  • Beginner - played a bit but not much
  • Intermediate - experienced but still quite new to the harmonica
  • Advanced - been playing for a year or two
  • Expert - at the top of your game and want to go further!

We’ve chosen the courses that best suit structured learning. However, as a student you may feel you’d like to expand your knowledge by looking at specific genres of music. To help simplify this process we offer additional courses that are not within the main portfolio of courses. As a member you can purchase these at a reduced cost.

What if I’m not a member, can I still buy individual courses?

Yup. You are possibly already playing the harmonica but feel that there are areas that you need to study in more depth or want to explore other styles of music. To help you in this we offer separate lessons outside of membership that can be purchased without having to join up.

"This was a very good course, Ben's communication skills are always clear and precise. This course is easy to understand verbally and there are lots of good clear demonstrations too. I particularly like the background information that Ben gives on this course including visual and written information."

"Great instruction in small, easily digested segments, each building on the previous one!"


"Brilliant instructor. Excellent course, as usual from Ben. All his courses are first class!!"

"Very clear instructions, heads on kinda course, lots of info but also immediate practice"


"Great breathing exercises and a good assortment of articulations to practice. Fun course for developing speed. Also, I got a good education on how the sounds/steam/mechanics of the engine and rolling stock work. Al."

Allen Bradshaw

"I found this video easy to understand because it was spaced out so clearly. Each exercise was clearly demonstrated which made them easy to follow plus, the tabulature was also offered which was clearly seen at the top right hand side of the screen. I found this to be a great advantage due to being able to write them down so I could remember them. This was an excellent video and it certainly deserves a five star rating."
