: just bought a "hohner silver star' diatonic hard for my 7yr old son. i've looked at the pix and faq's and all but didn't really get an answer to this silly question. does a simple diatonic harp has 2 levels? yknow, one up then a bar then another? also, is 7 a good age to start learning harp? he plays the drums very well already.
A standard diatonic harmonica has one single row of ten holes. There are some non-standard types out there, though, that have two rows or more holes.
Is 7 a good age to begin playing harp? Sure. Any age is good to learn a musical instrument. I've seen kids even younger than that playing various instruments. Besides, a harp is quieter than drums... at least a bit. :)
