Learn to play the blues harmonica in just two hours!

This team building activity delivers a couple of different important benefits. First, we reinforce the idea that everyone has the potential to learn new skills. Second, you get the powerful energy of a connected team enjoying a unique shared experience. The whole program is designed to be fun and engaging from beginning to end.

Starting with basics like how to hold the instrument correctly and proper breathing, your expert harmonica facilitator guides you step by step through the learning process. To help you achieve a classic blues harmonica sound, we even include ancient bluesy secrets like note bending, vibrato and vocal effects. And then, within minutes, everyone on your team will be amazed to find themselves making actual music together. The grand finale features your group performing an original blues song that they’ve created. 

Each participant gets to keep the harmonica as a way to remember this one-of-a-kind event. If you’d like, we can also provide retro sunglasses and Blues Brothers-style hats to all participants. These fun wardrobe accessories can work wonders in helping people let go of inhibitions as they unleash their inner blues monsters.

Play the Blues has been featured on NPR and in the MPI Magazine. Book this popular event for your own team, and you’ll see (and hear) why.
