Jon Gindick is one of the best, most effective, and beloved teachers in our community. He is really the originator of formal but fun Harmonica instruction.
Jon Gindick is one of the originals and certainly one of the best the best harmonica instructors in the world.
Awesome teacher. Awesome classes!
After kickstarting my playing with Country & Blues Harmonica for the Musically Hopeless (Hopeful), I attended a Jam Camp which helped me play in front of other like-minded people. I have a few of Jon’s books, including Jam tracks, and they are all worth more than the price!
Your book Harmonica for the Musically Hopeless is the reason I play harp now. I would recommend this for everybody.
I met Jon at SPAH Conference where he taught a harmonica basics session. He’s a great teacher, and he also makes it fun!
Harmonica for the Musically Hopeless cassette was my foundation course as a teenager, and it opened up the entire instrument. Within five years I was touring recording and playing with my heroes.
If you want to learn how to play the harmonica Jon is the professor.
I have your Harmonica Jam Camp T-Shirt! Simply love it!
Jon’s book Rockin Blues Harmonica was exactly what I was looking for when I first started playing harmonica. I’d tried many other books previously, but Jon’s one really helped me to understand how to play. It’s written/ recorded in a way that anybody can follow.
Hi, I’m from Antwerp, Belgium. Been using Jon’s books and his harp jam CD , it got me playing melodies in several positions! The best and most entertaining harmonica coach I know.
I think I have all your books. Started in the ’80s and still trying learned a lot with your help.
My favorite teacher, I learn a lot with your tutorials, and I like my harmonica more every day. Thank you; you’re a great person. Congratulations from Paris!
I learned so much in Mississippi. Every time I went I learned something new. Had been on stage over 20 years as the vocalist but added blues harmonica and just made it so much better!
Jon Gindick is THE man when it comes to teaching a beginning harp player. I have all his books, CDs, etc. Been to several of his, “Jam Camps” in Mississippi. That was 20 years ago. Because of Jon Gindick, I perform twice a week (paying gigs) with various bands here in Atlanta! Thank you Jon!!
Great teacher who explains in the easiest way of tone and rhythm and don’t forget the khe koo.
Jon’s Country and Blues Harmonica for the Musically Hopeless book changed my life. He teaches you from zero to hero… I’ve since sat in on harp with bands in Memphis, Chicago, Nashville, and many other ‘music cities.’ The book makes a fabulous gift for the musically incompetent too!
Several years ago I thought I would never master bending. Then I bought your lesson and wow, I couldn’t believe it. The best 25 dollars I ever spent.
After frustratingly trying some other instruction books, I got a copy of Country & Blues Harmonica for the Musically Hopeless, with the cassette tape. I connected with Jon’s teaching style immediately and went on to purchase more of his materials. I wouldn’t be playing harmonica if it weren’t for Jon and his passion and skill for teaching. Kinda long but edit away!
