HARMONICA FOR BEGINNERS
Learn to play simple traditional folk songs and elementary blues on one of America’s most popular, portable instruments—the harmonica. We’ll cover basic techniques such as bending, trilling, tongue-blocking, vibrato, and wah-wah, giving individual attention to each student. No musical background is required. Bring a 10-hole diatonic key of C major harmonica (such as the Hohner Special 20, the Hohner Marine Band model 1896, or equivalent) to the first class. Required text may be purchased for $10.00. (Optional: You may record classes). Class size is limited so please register early.
