Golden Rules

Good behaviour

Harmonica lessons last 30 minutes and there is lots pack in to each session! By following our Golden Rules everybody will make good progress and have more fun. Here’s what we ask of every Harp Academy student:

Folders 3To respect your harmonica and equipment:
•  Never borrow or lend a harmonica
•  Bring your music folder and equipment to every lesson
•  Hand in your Music Diary at the start of every lesson

To respect your teacher and others, please:
•  Stop playing when your teacher asks
•  Listen when your teacher is talking or demonstrating
•  Listen when others are playing, or speaking
•  Raise your hand if you have a question
•  Raise your hand if you have the answer to a question

Puzzled iTo respect yourself:
•  If there’s anything you don’t understand, tell your teacher
•  If anything we do is too fast for you, tell your teacher
•  If you forget your equipment it’s OK! You can still join in
•  If you’re not having fun – for any reason – tell your teacher

Cover ears iSafety
There are very few ways in which playing the harmonica can be dangerous. We should never throw our harmonica at anybody else as it could cause injury. We should also never, ever, blow our harmonica, or shout, into someone else’s ear. This may permanently damage their hearing. Be kind. Play safe.
