Harmonauts are go!
This year’s annual National Harmonica Festival took place¬†in Bristol on Saturday 24th¬†October (half term).¬†Four brave Harmonauts¬†entered the festival’s music competition and they all did extremely well.
- Jem Lawrence (Woodingdean) – ¬†Cock O’ The North
- Maisie Herbert (Crawley Down) – Hold Back The River
- Alex Dawson (Handcross Park) –¬†Somewhere Only We Know
- Rebecca Willoughby (Arunside) – Somewhere Only We Know/Bobby Shafto
Rebecca was awarded¬†2nd place and Maisie was awarded 3rd place, while Jem and Alex both received a Highly Commended grading. All in all, a very successful set of results for Sussex Schools! All credit to our players and their entourage of family supporters.
If you would like to take part next year, the festival always falls on the first weekend of October half term. Full details and entry forms can be found on our dedicated events page here.
We are currently receiving lots of messages¬†about¬†lost property. At the end of lessons, small items from music folders can¬†easily be left¬†behind. Before you leave, take¬†a quick look round. Please also ensure you pack your own kit and not somebody else’s! And, most importantly, a reminder to every harmonaut to write your name on everything in your¬†music pack. Thank you.

Children enjoy taking part in activities when¬†their best friends are involved. This includes music making on the harmonica. If you know¬†someone who may be interested¬†in joining Harp Academy, ask them to register for a Free Taster Session using the Golden Harmonica to the right¬†and¬†our promotional¬†code harmonaut. We’ll supply their starter harmonica and music sheet. If they¬†already have a diatonic harmonica in C Major, they can bring this to their taster session too. If¬†your¬†friend subsequently¬†joins Harp Academy for a complete term (1 taster session and 9 further lessons), we will credit you¬†two free lessons.
