About Filip Jers Harmonica

Hi!
Welcome to my harmonica hub. My name is Filip Jers, I am a professional harmonica player from Sweden. On my Patreon page I will post online harmonica lessons for both chromatic and diatonic instruments. The genre I focus on is jazz and folk music. The level is aimed at intermediate and advanced players.

This harmonica school does not follow a set course plan. It consists of separate lessons with different themes and subjects. Some subjects require a series of lessons and some are one shots. It is up to you as a student to know what you are interested in and want to learn. That is how I taught myself to play and the lessons are in the same spirit. So maybe it’s more of a hub to center your learning around and draw inspiration from, rather than a traditional school!

In every lesson you will find a little bit of everything that makes you a good musician. Some will be more technique heavy, some will be more music theory focused and some will be about just playing music. All of this is drawn from my own experience as a professional musician and harmonica player. For me music is a journey and a lifestyle and this hub will reflect on how I think and feel about music.

I hope that you want to explore music and harmonica playing with me!


If you join my Patreon page, you will get instant access to:
  • Exclusive video lessons
  • Exclusive ”Practise with me” tracks – I play and you follow
  • Exclusive PDF download with exercises and scales & arpeggios

New material will be added continuously!

At the moment this hub aims for intermediate and advanced players. With intermediate I mean that you are able to get a good single note, know some tunes and want to develop as a harmonica player.
