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!
