“I dreamed for years of such a complete and well-done website about Chromatic Harmonica as this; a place to find all possible advice about our beloved instrument, both technical and musical. We all must be grateful to David Kettlewell for having developed this wonderful project and, above all, to have donated to the Community all his skills and experience, absolutely free. So rare. Here you can find everything you need as a beginner, intermediate or  professionally-trained musician. David and all those who have helped him here have filled a void in chromatic harmonica education, creating a portal that’s an absolutely ‘must have’ for every harmonicist who really wants to learn to improve through practicing “the rights things-the right way” which is the proper path to success on the instrument.”

It has helpful study tips and very enjoyable videos, as well as interesting perspectives on music as an art form. A very special topic that David Kettlewell teaches better than anybody else is on breathing — as a classical trained singer, he is specialized in this and has very inspiring videos on this topic. I can recommend the website to chromatic harmonica players on every level!”

“Harmonica looks to non-experts like a simple, primitive, old instrument. We have needed something on the web showing people what chromatic harmonica really is and it’s musical value.Mastersofharmonica.com is the best website I know of for harmonica lovers. It has a beautiful new look and is a perfect starting point for people who want to know about the chromatic harmonica. I  like the blogs and that people can share their thoughts on, and love of music on the Facebook page. I appreciate the tutorial sections personally, they are very complete and well done.”
