|FUN|learning to play the harmonica with Rainbow Colours

 

I never thought you could easily teach a 4 year old to play a (proper!) tune on a harmonica... until we got sent a Rainbow colours harmonica.

It's a fantastically simple method based on using colours to represent the notes. 

It comes with a high quality harmonica and music book, the first thing you need to do is add the 4 coloured stickers onto the harmonica so it's easy to know where you need to blow or ermmm, suck. 

 

So as all good parents do, I decided I'd have a go first before it got clogged with the 4 year olds spittle 😂 straight away we could recognise the tunes, I amazed myself! 

 

T soon wanted a go and so with my help telling him blow 2 red, suck 2 blue etc etc he was soon playing a pretty good rendition of twinkle twinkle little star!  There's no way he'd be able to do it on his own without someone interpreting for him, but I'm sure in a couple of years he'd be fine! 

I love that he can play an actual tune on his own, without it actually making anyone's ears bleed. 

I can see this making an appearance after a few drinks at Christmas as I imagine everyone will want a go once they realise this system can make them look like genius's!  (Anyone know how to clean a harmonica 😉).

The Rainbow colours harmonica really is a fantastic system for all ages and would make a great Christmas present!
