Grammy® Award winner Howard Levy is thrilled to announce he has partnered with online video exchange pioneers, ArtistWorks, Inc. The team will be launching The Howard Levy Harmonica School (HLHS) later this month– the first ever online portal that will teach harmonica to students around the world. Levy is widely known as a founding member of the Flecktones. He has also performed and recorded with Kenny Loggins, Dolly Parton, Bobby McFerrin, Paul Simon, John Prine, and many others. Through his partnership with ArtistWorks, Inc., Levy integrates years of experience as a player and educator with their innovative video teaching technology. "Howard Levy's friendly teaching style and exhaustive harmonica curriculum are perfectly suited for the video exchange lesson platform. He'll teach harmonica to the world" says David Butler, CEO of ArtistWorks.

Howard Levy is the world’s most advanced diatonic harmonica player. He developed a fully chromatic style on the standard 10-hole diatonic and revolutionized harmonica playing, taking the instrument into uncharted territory. As a music educator, he has taught countless students and has been a guest lecturer on his craft at colleges and universities around the world including Harvard, Berklee College of Music, Dartmouth College and Northwestern University.

The HLHS is a self-paced program for any skill level or style preference and provides personal video exchange lessons online. Levy’s comprehensive video curriculum is categorized from beginner to advanced lessons in a variety of styles including jazz, blues, folk, rock and more. Using a webcam, students record themselves practicing and submit the video for Levy’s personalized critique. Either through video or written response, students get direct feedback from Levy and these one-on-one Master Classes are then posted to the HLHS Exchange Center for all students in the community to learn from. The Howard Levy Harmonica School is launching late November 2009.

ArtistWorks, a Napa, California company is the leader in creating video-based instructional subscription websites. This groundbreaking technology has been implemented at Qbert Skratch University, Andreas Oberg Guitar Universe, the Jimmy Bruno Guitar Institute, Peery Piano Online and the Tony Trischka School Of Banjo.
