Medical Harmonica

The Harmonica Exercise for Lung Program (H.E.L.P.)
The Medical Harmonica, featured videos, news, songs, tips and more. In over 34 years at the Ontario Aerobics Centre, Dr. John Schaman has seen over 45000 patients for cardiac rehabilitation and sports medicine. As a physician he was alarmed to learn that it is accepted as statistically normal to lose 50% of lung function between the ages of 30 and 70. It has been generally accepted that those using their lungs in more “extraordinary” ways such as breath-hold divers, opera singers and horn players have less deterioration with aging. The harmonica, because it is the only instrument that utilizes both inhaling and exhaling to create sound, was brought to his attention as a potential means of reducing and possibly even reversing this alarming trend.

Classical Music for Chromatic Harmonica

After 30 years’ involvement with fretted dulcimer as player, builder, arranger, composer, publisher, recording artist, clinician and festival coordinator, Tom Baehr has set all that aside to concentrate on using those experiences on a childhood pastime: chromatic harmonica.

These Harmonica Transcriptions are unlikely to be found elsewhere; the selections are transcribed from solo piano scores, with a solo cello piece, a string orchestra transcription and two guitar solos as well. The selections range from easy to challenging, 17th to 21st Centuries, familiar tunes and tuneful strangers. Visit Tom’s Website
