Life is what you make it. The harmonica has certainly helped to make my life more fun. I have met lots of people through playing harp. Made lots of friends too, some have become wonderful life-long friends.
Being able to play some blues on the spot has made me welcome almost everywhere I go. I have made little kids stop crying in their grocery carts by just playing a tune. I've also played with local flute players in the highlands of Peru, then trading the harmonica for a flute after the performance. I mean who gets to do that?
Music is the universal language of all people, and the harmonica is a great ambassador for that. It's very portable. Just slip it in your pocket - it goes where you go. Your very breath of life plays it. It's your personal, musical language, and you get to play it your way. You're probably already doing a lot of things in life that are a lot harder than playing the harmonica.
If you've always wanted to play a musical instrument then consider the harmonica. It's not magic, but it is magical. You'll have to work on it, and spend some time at it. But, if you have the desire to play, we can show you the way. Hey, life is what you make it. Why not make some music along the way?

By the way, who would've imagined we would get "Blue Barry's Beginner Blues Harmonica" instructions from cassette tape all the way to the iPad!!? How cool is that?
Until we discovered appOmator back in November, we were a long way from that reality. Finding an inexpensive way to easily get an app made and approved for the iTunes App Store had proven elusive. After looking into everything it would take to learn to design and write an app from scratch or pay someone else to do it, appOmator really struck a chord. With it's drag-and-drop method for incorporating audio, images, and video it actually seemed doable. The video tutorials helped us understand how to use the program and things really clicked from that point on.
We were a little apprehensive about committing to a program still in beta, but they already had dozens of apps on the app store and they were looking good. The fact that they were affiliated with MacProVideo gave us the boost of confidence we needed to give it a whirl.
Fast forward a few weeks and several hundred app sales later and needless to say, we're excited about the possibilities for the Harmonica SuperTutor™.
Finally, a way for do-it-yourself enthusiasts to create a quality app without a lick of programming. Amazing!
