Music workout practice for all instrumental tune players, quick, easy & fun!

I play a phrase, you copy. No dots! Progressive challenge for harmonica players, brass, woodwind, guitar, strings, voice

   Watch Promo to get a sneaky peek!

This works for all melodic instruments including voice.

This is a musical workout, building your music muscles - like training at the musical gym.

Ear training is essential. We all want to get our playing as fluid as whistling don't we?

Recently I've been teaching call and response workshops based on ancient and modern African farmers and their field songs.

These work songs and field hollers were, and are, a way of coping with hard physical work.

Now they are embedded in many musical traditions and we are going to use this concept to increase the fluidity of our playing.

I will play a short simple phrase over one or (mostly) two bars and you copy.

That's it.

I'll repeat the phrase until I imagine you have got it.

If you find the early stages too easy either play

  • a harmony with the same rhythm
  • a phrase opposite to what I'm playing - an answer to my question
  • something which mirrors and opposes the dynamics
  • an octave above or below

If it's all too easy play through a few times, give it a great review and get yourself a refund!

But please let me know if this is too easy, about right or too hard.

I'm using 'iRealPro' in this course and all the backing tracks are freely available.

If you have any objections please let me know and I will deal with it.

Ben Hewlett is a very experienced music teacher who is able to be very patient and methodical.

Take one course and learn your favourite tune. Then 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, and 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.
