Richard Sleigh

Richard Sleigh has been exploring the harmonica from the inside out for decades. He is well known for his high end custom harmonicas and also for his performances and teaching seminars. He basically ruined himself for anything resembling a "normal" life years ago... He devotes his time to his family, philosophy, practicing and playing music, writing, studying the lives of people who do amazing things, and experiments at living an epic life in spite of his flaws, fears, and self doubts. Music is the central theme in his hero's journey, and he is just crazy enough to believe that music is one of the main forces that changes the world into a better place.

Why should you bother with this course?

If you are a total newbie to the harmonica, you will find detailed and precise instructions on how to get a good solid tone and timing right from the start. You will avoid the most common mistakes that most self taught harmonica players (Including the creator of this course) have made. It will save you a lot of trial and error.

If you are a harmonica teacher, you will find new ways to think about the basics of breathing through the harmonica, how you put the harmonica in your mouth, the mechanics of breathing specific to the harmonica, and how to lock in great habits for developing tone, endurance and timing from day one.

If you are a seasoned pro, you already know that going back to the basics and questioning everything you know is a good thing to do from time to time to blow the cobwebs out of your brain. This course will help you get you back into beginners mind, where the air is fresh and clean and anything is possible...
