For thousands of years the power of music and rhythm has
revitalised and unified groups of people
Rhythm is innate within us all
the beat of our heart, the way we walk
and the clapping of our hands.
We provide a fun experience for everyone to express themselves rhythmically in a positive empowering and unifying way.
HARMONICA BLUES JAM EXPERIENCE

HARMONICA JAM - ONLINE TEAM
Working from home has many bonuses but it can be socially isolating. A Harmonica Jam is the perfect activity to bring your team together for a fun catch up that relieves stress and provides health benefits. The Harmonica Jam can be a one-off activity or organised for your group as a regular activity delivered on a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly basis.
THE BLUES MUSICAL TRAIN EXPERIENCE
The blues musical train brings together the magical combination of harmonica, vocal harmonies and percussion. Under our facilitators direction participants break into groups to learn their new craft of either percussion, harmonica or vocal harmonies. We then combine in sections to produce a rhythmic chorus where participants discover the fabulous percussive ensemble, they have created together.

Harmonica for Health
Playing the Harmonica is a wonderful way to improve your breathing and exercise your lungs. As we age, we lose our lung capacity. Medical experts say that people start losing their lung capacity by age 30 and may have only 50 percent of their previous capacity by age 50.
The Harmonica is being used around the world as therapy to improve lung capacity fitness. Unlike the familiar fitness regimes of yoga and exercise classes Harmonica Therapy offers the opportunity to do something that’s fun while also learning a few tunes.
Harmonica Therapy is an ideal activity as it works on breathing and focus together.
According to the Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Foundation as well as the breathing benefits playing the harmonica assists with strengthening the abdominal muscles (for a more effective cough), & is an activity that helps with focus, relieves stress, and boosts self-confidence all of which helps to achieve a better quality of life.
Harmonica Therapy Progam
This program is designed to focus on delivering the health benefits of the Harmonica to help participants achieve a better quality of life. Participants will learn breathing techniques, rhythms and a few songs all whilst having lots of fun along the way. The program can be delivered on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis and can be catered to the needs of your group.
Lifeline Newcastle & Hunter:
The harmonica workshop was brilliant on many levels. As a team-building event, the workshop enabled everyone to get to know each other in a fun and energetic way. The workshop was a wonderful break and momentary diversion from the seriousness of an extended conference. The workshop was very inclusive as even those who had no musical talent were able to grasp the basics of playing the harmonica.

Your ability to hold the attention of 200 salespeople for as long as you did was equally as impressive as your ability to teach them some of your craft. We have been inundated with calls this week from our guests thanking us for such a unique experience and complimenting the after-dinner Blues performance.

“Zoos Victoria engaged ‘Blues Jam’ for our 2-day intensive leadership program to provide a quirky method of team engagement, some light relief and to uncover any hidden talent of our future leaders. We scored on all points. Bluetongue’s amazing program was one of the highlights of the leadership program, great fun, uncovered some musical talent, and all prized their take-home harmonicas.”
- Lovonne Hunter, HR Director, Zoos Victoria.
ARENA TV “Foxtel”:
Who knew that a crash-course in blues harmonica would be just the thing to inspire a virtually all-female group of young television execs.
In just one hour, Bluetongue managed to get the team playing together and having a blast in the process, without having to resort to any of the cheesy team-building stuff we’ve all seen before.
I’d recommend Bluetongue Harmonica to anyone looking to give their people a fun, fresh and authentic experience they’ll remember for years.

All of our Managers had a fantastic time and it was great to finish off the conference in a creative and different way!

Dan Murphy’s/Woolworths Ltd Conference /Red Jelly:
50% of delegates have listed your session in the top 3 highlights from the whole of conference. This is a real testimonial to you as they had high profile guest entertainers, yet they took more away from your performance and the harmonica training you provided.
The format of your session was so adaptable to our requirements which was fantastic. I speak for all the delegates when I say we would recommend you not only for team building sessions or conferences but also as guest entertainers. I don’t think anyone knew how truly entertaining a blues harmonica jam session could be.
