Cruise Ship EntertainerBen Hewlett, cruise ship entertainer

I love to perform on Cruise Ships – just me, the band and the audience. I also work on ships a Guest Lecturer. I teach the passengers to play the harmonica – whether they like it or not!

Session workLadbrooks ad

I do a little session recording from time to time – here’s an example on a Ladbrokes world cup advert – football, I think it was.

Private lessons

I have been teaching diatonic harmonica professionally since 1995 and playing since 1985.

The people I have been taught by include Howard Levy (one week intensive course) Joe Filisko, Paul Lamb, Brendan Power, Adam Gussow, Charlie McCoy, Dave Barrett, Richard Sleigh and many more.

You can have private lessons with me at my home in Chipping Sodbury, near Bristol, UK. The cost is 50 pence a minute (£30/hour). You can have as many or as few lessons as you like or just a one off.

Private tuition helps you learn the harmonica much faster than learning by yourself – it’s a shortcut!

For regular students I require a returnable deposit which is also £30. You get it back when you want to stop or take a break.

Or you can have a lesson with me on SKYPE – please contact my Skype ID (benhewlettbenhewlett) and mention ‘harmonica lessons’
