You are joining the Ben Hewlett Harmonica School, I'm very happy to see you, welcome!
Firstly - thank you for joining. Is this your first go at harmonica? Or maybe you've done some before?
You will get one new course per month so always take that one please.
And here's what you get on arrival:
All the courses.
Beginners - take the '30 day challenge' first please.
After that it's 'Trainsounds' for you.
Next is 'Basic 12 bar Blues'
Then 'Basic 8 bar Blues (Trouble in Mind)'
and finally '9 smart ways to play in a band'
Then do the 7 day crash course as a refresher - you will definitely learn something new.
Intermediates - you could try the 30 day course as a refresher and then follow the same pattern.
Since starting teaching harmonica in 1995 I have been looking for a way to reach a lot of harmonica players and give them a helping hand. Through this platform (and earlier Youtube and Udemy) I found the way to bring you a huge amount of tuition and to make new courses every month on subjects you tell me you want to learn about.
I love making video courses - it's the next best thing to meeting you personally, and it does save a lot of driving.
So jump in, don't rush, take the courses slowly and practise what you are enjoying.
You can cancel any time and there is no contract for the monthly subscription.
If you start on a monthly subscription to check it out and then want to go to annual payments - which makes it just $5 a month - the way to make this change is to cancel the monthly subscription and then purchase the annual version. This is necessary because you will have to verify your payment information through checkout once more in order to initiate a new subscription plan. Hopefully we can get a button to do this in future.

"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."
"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."
Hi, thanks for reading all this stuff!
You can cancel and jump out anytime if you are not finding this useful.
All the best, enjoy the courses - there's another coming your way next month!
