ROBERTO GALLI

Bio

Talking about Roberto Galli means talking about Blues. This musician has been bound to this genre since his youth through the execution of the harmonica, also known as blues harp. This little but powerful instrument allowed him to experience unique moments in the world of music during his professional career.
Mar del Plata, (Argentina), is the city that saw his birth. He worked as a professional musician for more than a decade, and collaborated with different consolidated groups in the music scene of his hometown and the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires, as a guest musician as well as a permanent member. Eager to explore new horizons, he decided to move to Europe, establishing his new residence in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Roberto has there the priviledge of sharing stage with internationally and regionally reknown blues musicians like Bob Margolin (Muddy Waters’ guitarist), Aaron Burton, Richard Vinton, Rico McClarrin, Elon Jackson, Jay Kaye, Felix Slim, José Luis Pardo, Tota Blues, Jordi Álvarez, Juan Amaro, Mingo Balaguer, ‘Los Reyes del K.O’ and ‘Los Peligrosos Gentlemen’. He had the honor of being invited to perform with Teresa Parodi, former Minister of Culture of the Republic of Argentina, when she visited the Balearic Islands during her European tour in 2013. He has recently offered a master class sponsored by the legendary and globally prestigious harmonica manufacturer Hohner, as well as different workshops spreading his knowledge on the blues harp.
He has been a regular member of the blues band ‘Big Yuyu’, offering shows all around the Balearic Islands. He performs as a duo with the American pianist and singer Richard Vinton. Simultaneously, Roberto acts with the Argentine singer and guitar player Hernán Fillipini, giving Tango and Argentine Folklore concerts. He collaborates regularly with the Catalan singer Cecilya Mestres, and also with the Majorcan rock groups ‘The LadyJune’ and ‘Zelisko Band’, and the singers Luis Cadenas and Lala Garau. He worked as a studio musician with bands such ‘The Trumpet Geezers’, The Doors tribute band ‘Moonlight Drivers’, the Argentine folk artist Pablo Sans, the ‘Mendigos Blues’ duo and the Salamanca based rock group ‘Los Intrusos del Savoy’. He has participated in Tom Trovador’s videoclip and single ‘Tierra’. Meanwhile, Roberto is involved in different projects as studio musician, as well as participating as a member of the Majorcan Blues Association, among other cultural entities. In 2016, he presents his new project ‘The Rhythm Workers’, a very interesting latin jazz & blues quartet with a sophisticated repertoire composed by all-time blues, soul, swing, jazz and tango standards.
Roberto is currently still exploring the versatility of his instrument, performing and studying its use in different genres like Jazz, Tango or Latin American rhythms. Forward-looking, he is offering music lessons to students of all levels and ages while working as a freelance live musician.

Introduction


Music is a vehicle for expression and a common language for all human beings, therefore, it’s a matter of key importance on the development of the personality, being also helpful for the personal growth.

The harmonica, commonly referred as blues harp, is a wind instrument with free-vibrated reed. The execution of this instrument consists in blowing and drawing air through a single or a group of its holes. It’s an ideal instrument for music beginners and students. One proof of this is that the harmonica is the best-selling instrument worldwide, due to its low price and ease of transport.

The blues harp enjoys nowadays a remarkable popularity, and it’s frecuently included and shown on famous movies and music albums.

This instrument has been used in folk recordings as well as in classical music. It has been featured in varied music styles, experiencing in the present a booming period.

The main goal of the learning method is developing creativity, spontaneity, memory and improvisation skills, as well as other cognitive abilities needed during the instrument execution. The learning process is very didactic, with an intuitive, simple and practical approach, motivating the student from the beginning to perform easy-to-play songs without requiring any previous knowledge about music or other instruments.

How the music lessons work


The music lessons are offered for diatonic and/or chromatic harmonica students, regardless of their age or level.

The classes will be focused on the instrument execution from the beginning without studying music theory or solfège with the purpose of allowing the student to quickly play harmonica, using an own developed method with easy-to-read-and-play tabs, making the learning process easier and motivating.

Afterwards, the student will be introduced to the theorical study of the instrument, music harmony and useful improvisation resources, while performing styles as Country, Blues, Rock, Rock & Roll, Funk, Jazz & Latin.

Classes may be individual or in groups depending on availability.

Eventually, an intensive course is held, previously advertised on different communication channels, social media and on this website as well.

The music lessons are taught in-person or online via skype. Face-to-face classes take place right in the city center of Palma de Mallorca (Spain), in flexible hours for the student.

Roberto Galli has been spreading his knowledge on the harmonica for more than a decade. He has developed a very practical and simple learning method. This Argentine harp player is nowadays on active work as a teacher as well as a live performer who tours with diverse and interesting music projects.
