"Playing The Harmonica" was purchased as a gift for my ten year old nephew. He LOVES music and this harmonica gave him the opportunity to have "hands on", while letting his creativity flow. The instruction book is very well written, but just the fact that one can pick up the harmonica and begin to play on their own to get the feel of a musical instrument is the best! He is loving this gift! There is no right or wrong notes, just depends where you place them. Very much fun!

I did not keep the harmonica. It was a gift for Capt. Duane Craft and his buddies in Iraq. I thought if he learn to play the harmonica it might help to bring some enjoyment to him while he is doing his duty. NetWA

Bought it for my girlfriend's grandson and WHAT a HIT!!! He LOVED it! Carried the harmonica around and played it all Christmas day! The instructional booklet may be a little difficult for his age (9 yrs old), but he's trying! The harmonica and little cinchsack/bag, though, proved to be VERY popular with the little guy! Thanks!!!

This box contains a nice harmonica for beginners; and a instructional book (not so easy to follow). It is a nice gift and keeps my son entrained while he is learning.

I bought it for my 11-year-old daughter for Charity Christas gift. You can't go wrong with a musical instrument.
