Private Lessons

I teach private lessons out of my home and also teach live online via skype. My approach as your instructor will be to assess your current level, and together develop a lesson plan based on your objectives.

If you are a beginner or are not sure which musical direction to take, my role will be to help you discover and identify your musical goals, and to set up a lesson plan that is challenging, yet achievable. I have found that my students are most successful when we collaborate in this aspect of the learning process.

I teach and play the harmonica in a full range of musical genres. These include blues, traditional jazz, modern jazz, country, bluegrass, Irish, Brazilian, Klezmer and Middle Eastern, to name a few. I also think it’s important to incorporate some music theory and its application on the harmonica into my lesson plans. We will determine what level of theory is appropriate for your stage of learning in your lesson plan.Please contact me at:

 Here’s a little taste of me playing a live version of  “The St.Louis Blues”.

"Weltman deserves praise as a soloist; his harmonica playing leaps out into inventive melodic territory while expressing the emotions inherent in the song."
