About Howard

Howard Levy is a master of harmonica. As the first person to play the diatonic harmonica as a fully chromatic instrument, Howard opened a world of new possibilities for the instrument.  After he pioneered "overblowing" and "overbending" techniques, Howard was able to journey outside the realm of traditional harmonica music and explore other genres including Jazz, Classical, Latin and other styles of World Music.

As a recording artist, Howard has played on hundreds of albums and several movie soundtracks. Aside from his prolific work as a solo performer, he is a founding member of the group Bela Fleck and The Flecktones, who in 2011 won a Grammy for the song "Life in Eleven", which Howard co-wrote. Howard also plays in the groups Trio Globo, Chévere de Chicago, Acoustic Express; and has recorded collaborations with Anthony Molinaro, Fox Fehling, Norman Savitt, Rabih Abou Khalil, and many others.

Howard has been showing people how to play harmonica since 1972 and teaching harmonica lessons online with ArtistWorks since 2009.
