Harmonica for lung health

We are starting a six week course of Harmonica for Lung Health sessions from February 17th.

Learn a new skill, strengthen your breath and have some fun.

You will learn to play some folk, country and blues music, as well as learning new breathing techniques and strengthening your breathing and coughing muscles.

The harmonica sessions are run by Chris Startup, who is a lung Health Practitioner who has been running Lung Health groups for more than six years.

Chris attended the University of Northampton in 2000 combining Music and Drama as a Degree (BAHons). After graduating he began teaching in the theatre and became a Musical Director. He has now been teaching music privately for the over 20 years, running choirs, vocal sessions, harmonica classes and teaching instruments ranging from Acoustic Guitars, Bass Guitar,Piano, Bouzouki, Harmonica, Banjo, and singing, (to name but a few).

The six weekly sessions will take place from 10:30 to 11:30pm every Thursday, and we ask that you attend all six sessions if possible. We understand your health may not allow this but ask you do your best and let us know if you can't attend.

You will need a C major diatonic 10 hole harmonica for the sessions!
