Hello Everyone,

I've come across JPAllen's lessons many times. One time, I found a very enthusiastic supporter of JP Allen. He said that:

Regardless of the harmonicas I received in the JP Allen boxed set – When I compared “the value” of all the lessons to other websites and harmonica programs – And, yes, I’ve invested heavily into them already – Nothing, but nothing comes close to what JP Allen offers for a one-time only, one-time life investment purchase price!

Obviously, some people really like his lessons. But what do you guys think?

Keep on harp squealin'!

I did his 99 lesson happy harpin course. It was a decent grounding in beginning techniques and he has a nice relaxed teaching style. It was great for helping get single notes down and for basic chugging but it didn't go a whole lot further than that. I bought his 7 DVD set afterwards but I don't recommend that at all and is, largely, a rerun of the stuff in the happy harpin course.

I've bought a huge amount of lessons over the last few months and would recommend Adam Gussow (moderrnbluesharmonica.com), Ronnie Shellist (harmonica123.com) and Jon Gindick as the best of those.

Gindick's stuff is amazing for rank beginners and I think it's only 50 bucks for a lifetime membership of his video harp club which is far, far less than JP's stuff.

Hope that helps.
Mike

Howdy Fellow Harpsters:

I can only say as a former client/friend and creator/moderator/administrator of JP Allen's Harmonica.com forum of several years ago -

If you're just starting out on harmonica and can still get the boxed DVDs/CDs of his courses, then it's all worth it! As a test run, I downloaded JP's courses on my laptop at the time. My then laptop crashed and burned; and no, I have not been able to get any lessons back since. Sorry, JP Allen's lessons are really great! But only get them if you can get the hardcopies of them as I have and still maintain now. Just saying....

Keep on harpin'! B)

There are some very good free lessons from Tomlin Leckie. Just google his YouTube channel, and you'll find them. Most of his lessons geared toward beginners are the earlier ones. He's a great instructor.
Like J. P. Allan, Tomlin focuses mainly on blues. If you want to learn from an instructor who goes into folk, Celtic, Latin, jazz, classical, rock, and other genres in addition to blues, I highly recommend Howard Levy's online school at Artistworks. It's definitely worth the price.
