      Hey Victoria, I teach the diatonic 10-hole harmonica, so I’m not all that familiar with chromatic harps…love the sound of them, but never learned to play. Please let me know if you are interested in learning the diatonic, or sticking with the chromatic. Hal Walker who is often featured on my site plays the chromatic and can advise you on chromatic harps.
