Howard Levy's Harmonica School Opens 12/3/09

Grammy® Award Winning Harmonica Virtuoso Howard Levy Launches the First Online Personal Video Exchange Harmonica School

Grammy® Award winner Howard Levy in conjunction with ArtistWorks Inc. (AWI), is excited to launch The Howard Levy Harmonica School (HLHS) – the first ever online personal video exchange school that will teach students around the world to play harmonica, including the various genres of jazz, blues, folk, classical and world music. Partnered with online video technology experts AWI, Levy integrates years of experience as a player and educator with their innovative video exchange teaching technology.  Students around the world can now study one on one with harmonica virtuoso Howard Levy.  Up until now video education has been a very one-dimensional learning experience. With AWI’s groundbreaking video platform, learning has now become a multi-dimensional experience that is more efficient, collaborative and fun. AWI’s personal video exchange technology is revolutionizing the musical learning experience.

Howard Levy is the world’s most advanced diatonic harmonica player and out of him flows radiant music. His entire life has been musical - since his early compositions and improvisations at age nine. He doesn’t play just harp, he plays instruments from all the families and applies his masterful technique to each. His harmonica style is influenced by multiple cultures, as well as playing other musical instruments. Levy is widely known as a founding member of the Flecktones and has also performed and recorded with Kenny Loggins, Dolly Parton, Bobby McFerrin, Paul Simon, John Prine, and many others.

HLHS offers the most extensive, educational harmonica program available online. Levy’s comprehensive interactive video curriculum is a self-paced program categorized by skill level (beginner harmonica to advanced), as well as by styles (jazz, blues, world music, classical and folk). Student members to the HLHS watch and study the harmonica video lessons at their appropriate skill level or style preference. Using a basic webcam, students record themselves practicing and submit their video online using the site’s video exchange system. Once the student’s video is uploaded, Levy reviews every video and responds directly to students with a personalized critique, either by video or written evaluation. The exchange between master harmonica teacher and student are subsequently published on the site for all students in the community to learn from.

The Howard Levy Harmonica School is built on the proprietary technology platform and video exchange system of ArtistWorks, Inc. Originally implemented at the Jimmy Bruno Guitar Institute, the AWI format allows virtuoso musicians to teach the world by presenting their full method or curriculum on video to subscribers of their sites. The artist offers instruction and guidance through personalized video exchange lessons online. The students and the artists use simple webcams to manage the video flow using the Video Management System created by ArtistWorks. This inventive use of video exchange for the instruction of musical instruments has been implemented at Qbert Skratch University, the Andreas Oberg Guitar Universe, Peery Piano Online, Tony Trischka School of Banjo and now, the Howard Levy Harmonica School.  All online lessons are available for a $60.00 subscription fee for a three-month period.
