Playing the Blues

Learning to play the blues harmonica like the masters in just two hours? Our fun and friendly instruction teaches everything you need to know to get started playing the blues harmonica. What a great team building event for boosting creativity and improvisation in the workplace.

This really fun and unique musical team building activity was one of the first collaborations with Rob, one of our trainers/facilitators.  The fun and teamwork begin when each participant receives a harmonica, Blues Harmonica book and multi-media play-a-long CD. Starting with the basics of how to hold the instrument correctly and breathe properly, your Play the Blues Harmonica facilitator guides you all the way to playing with a convincing classic blues sound. Within minutes, everyone on your team will be playing a real blues song together. We even include the ancient bluesy secrets of bending notes, vibrato, vocal effects and more. The grand finale features your group as the stars: perform an original blues song that you’ve created, and even take home a recording of your performance captured on CD or Video!

This musical team building activity is specifically designed to help people realize that they can accomplish things they may not have been aware of or thought they could. It’s an excellent way to bring co-workers together while injecting passion, confidence, and fun back to the workplace. Retro sunglasses and Blue Brothers hats optional.
