Harmonica Lessons

Learn the harmonica with Yvonnick 

The harmonica is an easy and fun instrument to learn. I have taught in both France and the United States, specializing in diatonic and chromatic harmonica as well as in music theory, jazz harmony and improvisation. I was a jazz theory, rhythm and ear training tutor at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary during his senior year. Since 2012, I have joined the faculty of Brooklyn Music School, First Flight Music and New York Jazz Workshop. I create custom lesson plans for each individual to insure the best learning environment for each student.

FAQ:

Do you teach total beginner?

Yes! Students begin with the fundamentals of learning the harmonica and developing good practice habits. Emphasizing on breathing, single note techniques and bending, students also learn sight-reading skills and music theory.

What styles of music do you teach?

The harmonica is a versatile and popular among many types. All genres of music, folk, blues, country, rock, jazz and classical can be played. As you can see in my bio, my tastes are eclectic and I love to explore different aspects of the music world with my student.

Do you teach kids?

I believe learning harmonica should be fun, creative, flexible and educational.  For those new to music, harmonica is an excellent start as it is one of the easiest instruments to play. It helps children to focus and develop their attention through exposure to music. I present the lesson in a very accessible way and encourage them to explore the many possibilities of the instrument. In addition, they learn fundamental music skills and simple songs.
