What Our Students Are Saying About Us
Your personal touch, obvious focus and attention to detail, and your ability to inspire students with your online videos is just fantastic! I feel very fortunate to have found your online school to take me on my Harmonica learning journey!!!
About 15 months ago I started at Tomlin’s school, and I will tell you it was the best move I made to learn this instrument. I am amazed at how much there is to know about the harmonica. What I find nice about this course is the structure. Every time I spend days and weeks even on a lick I sometimes get frustrated. Then with all the resources in the school and a lot of practice it seems like magic, I can play the lick and move on. What a good feeling that is. So I just wanted to take a minute out of my day to say thanks to Tomlin and the many others that have helped me so far. I am not a fast learner, and have a long way to go. I cant believe I can now play the Hook on Hoochie Coochie Man. now i get to work on the next ten licks, hahaha.

Hi, I’m Tomlin.
Hi guys, I’m an Edinburgh-based blues harmonica player and teacher. I founded the Tomlin Harmonica School becuase I’m passionate about teaching music and making it accessible to those who really want to learn. Having taught myself to play Blues Harmonica after wrist injuries stopped my career as a guitarist, I decided to create an easy-to-follow learning system to help others learn Blues Harmonica. I’m so glad you’re here. Happy harping!
