Curated by one of the country’s leading harmonica players Chris Maunders, these specially designed incursions teach students all about the complexities of our favourite little instrument, the harmonica.

Through a variety of “Orff-Schulwerk inspired games and exercises, the sessions unfold as students participate in harmonica-based aural games which promote dance and body percussion before embarking on an exciting journey through melodic and textural harmonica playing. To put it simply, it’s awesome fun for all. And yes, every student receives their own brand new harmonicas, FOR KEEPS!

What do the incursions entail?

  • 1 new 10-hole diatonic harmonica in the key of C per student
  • Educational harmonica workshop 1 hour in duration
