Harmonica Lessons at Portland Road

Posted on by Caroline Oliver

We are very excited to welcome peripatetic music teacher Richard Taylor from Harp Academy to Hopscotch Portland Road nursery. Richard is providing regular harmonica lessons to our children and as you can see they are fully engaged and having fun.

Why the Harmonica?

It’s the start of something bigger – The harmonica is a highly effective portal for musical beginners.

Fun –  Lessons include key skill learning, musical games, group activities and repertoire drawn from a variety of child-friendly sources.

Inclusive – The harmonica is accessible for boys and girls alike.  It supports confidence, articulation, motor skills, vision and hearing and it’s accessible for children with special educational needs.

Educational value of music – Music making, including playing the harmonica, draws together science, maths, foreign languages, physical education and art. It requires team work, social skills and expresses emotion.

Best of all, it enables us to give pleasure to others.
