WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?

If you want to improve your harp skills in a fun and easy-to-follow way, this is the place for you.

 

Maybe you've been watching YouTube videos without a sense of progress, or you are worried about developing bad habits. Either way, this school can help.

 

I'm confident that you won't find anywhere else with such detailed and wide-ranging harmonica courses. The Members Zone will give you a clear path to success, laid out in easy to follow, fun, bitesize lessons, in a range of styles of approaches.

As a member, you'll get all the lessons, song studies and exercises to get you to the next level. In addition, you can get personalised feedback from me about your progress, helping you to identify exactly what to do next to keep improving.

And that's not all: you will also be joining a community of fellow harp students with whom you can share tips and discuss all things harmonica.

This is all included in the monthly fee, which is less than you'd pay for a single private lesson.

 

What benefits do members get?

  • 11 step-by-step courses (that's over 1,500 videos)

  • Hundreds of downloadable tabs and resources

  • 140 blues jam tracks

  • 45 classic blues song studies

  • Specialist lessons on bending, overblows, tongue blocking, theory, gear and more

  • Techniques to help you with pop, rock, country, folk, jazz and blues

  • Feedback and support from your teacher and fellow students

All lessons and courses are step-by-step, breaking down techniques, songs and concepts into bitesize chunks to help you learn at your own pace, whenever and wherever you want.

When can you access lessons?

As soon as you've signed up! You can log in on any device at any time.

How long do you get to access lessons?

The Members Zone is a subscription service. You can choose either a Monthly or Yearly subscription. As long as you remain a member, you can keep coming back as many times as you like. If you cancel your membership, you will lose access.

I’m working on my tongue blocking to become a better player. The tabs are easy to follow and it’s fairly priced.

Liam’s song studies are very valuable and quite unique. I’m practicing for fun and to help with jam sessions.

How do I sign up?

Select a Pricing Plan, enter your details and complete payment information when prompted.

How does the free trial work?

When you sign up for either Monthly or Yearly membership, you get 30 days to see if my Members Zone is right for you.

 

If you decide to cancel before the end of the free trial, you won't be charged a penny. If you decide to keep your membership, you will be charged after the end of the trial period.

What type of harmonica do I need?

My lessons are for diatonic harmonica. I recommend a Hohner Special 20.

Any diatonic harmonica in the key of C is a good place to start, although some lessons use different keys where appropriate.

Will I get feedback on my progress?

Yes, you can post video or audio (or just ask a question) in the private members forum. I give constructive advice and guidance tailored to your specific learning style and level. Of course, there is no obligation if you'd prefer not to share anything.

How long do I have to sign up for?

You can sign up for a single month and cancel at any time if it's not for you, but you'll save more if you sign up for a full year in advance. (Please note: you need to choose Monthly or Yearly before starting your free trial.)

What payment methods do you accept?

You can pay via debit/credit card or PayPal. Simply select Monthly or Yearly membership and proceed through checkout.

What currency are payments in?

Payments are in US dollars, but currencies will be automatically converted for you. I have students worldwide!

How do your premium lessons differ from your free YouTube lessons?

My premium lessons all contain exclusive content: they go into more detail than my YouTube lessons and cover some topics that my free lessons don’t.

Premium courses are step-by-step lessons on a specific topic. I have written and recorded then exclusively for paying customers so you won't find them anywhere on YouTube.

Do you use tabs or music notation in your lessons?

I use a tab system in my lessons. The main reason I use tabs rather than notation is that it is the way I learned to play: I learned in an active, practical environment rather than a theoretical one, so that's the way I teach. I believe tabs help you to use your ears rather than eyes to feel and internalise the rhythm. Tab also has the advantage of being "transposable" on to any key of harp. Music notation works best for some people and it is certainly a fantastic tool but it's definitely not necessary in order to learn an instrument.

How do I log in?

Click the Log In page and enter your account details. Make sure to fill in the 'Log In' from not the 'Sign Up' form or you will get a message saying that an account already exists for that email address.

I am trying to sign up and it says I already have an account. Why?

If you've ordered a premium lesson or course from my store before, you may have created a login so you could save your details for future purchases. This means your email address is already on the system. You can either click 'Forgot Password?' to change your password, or use a different email address to sign up.

Can I download the lessons and tabs?

You can download tabs and resources but not the lessons,

which are streamable on the Members Zone lesson page only.

Really want to download a lesson? All premium lessons and courses can be purchased individually

and downloaded without joining the Members Zone (but it's a lot cheaper on average to become a member and stream them).

I bought a lesson/course and I can't log in. What's going on?

If you bought something from my store, you are not a Member. The Premium Lessons store sells individual lessons and courses, for a one-off fee, which you can then download and keep. It's a sort of "pay-as-you-go" system.

The Members Zone is a different process entirely: members get access to all of my premium courses and classes for a recurring monthly fee. As a member, all lessons are streamed via the Members Zone (not downloadable). If you would like to "upgrade" from an individual purchase to a fully fledged member, let me know and I'll arrange it for you.

In what order do I follow the lessons?

You can watch any lesson you like at any time, as many times as you want, and you can dip in and out as you please.

This way you'll be able to tailor your experience to your own learning style.

Can I cancel at any time?

Yes. If you want to cancel your membership, click My Account in the menu. Go to My Subscriptions and click Cancel. Alternatively, I can cancel your account for you if you email me with your request.
