What’s the #1 reason to study harmonica at Winter Park Music Academy?
Our harmonica instructors are friendly and patient. We work with every student or parent to tailor the lessons to match the individual’s learning style, genre and goals.
What will I learn?
Beginners will learn the basics of playing a diatonic harmonica: holding the harp, breathing and making sound with single notes and chords. Our instructors will then show you simple patterns and songs! We will carefully guide you from where you are to where you want to go. Whether that’s technical proficiency or playing your favorite songs, we can take you there!

Do I need to be able to read music before I start harmonica lessons?
No, we welcome beginners!
Do I need a harmonica at home to take piano lessons?
You will need your own harmonica to practice with at home. We can recommend the right one for your budget. A simple harmonica costs between $5.00-$40.00.
