The Harmonica Barge was started by music graduate and teacher and workshop leader Ed Hopwood. Ed offers mobile harmonica lessons across London one to one or through Skype.
In addition to Ed's private tuition, he works in a number of schools and for various music services including Ealing. He has six years of popular music education under his belt, first studying a diploma in his native midlands and then a degree in London. In his final year, he specialized in Blues/Roots music with an emphasis on music education.
He has taught hundreds of complete beginners to play the harmonica at their own homes or workshops, festivals and even live on the radio, with previous students including Panaroma's Tom Mangold and members of the Mystery Jets.
