Beginning Harmonica Online Workshop with Sandy Weltman Session One

October 17, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Beginning Harmonica Workshop

This online harmonica workshop is sponsored by the good folks at “Music Folk” in Webster Groves. This class is deigned for the aspiring beginning harmonicist (yes,thats a real word). In this two – part workshop, we will delve into some basic foundational techniques, (holding a harmonica , breathing correctly etc..), learning simple melodies, learning some simple blues and a whole host of other harmonica related topics. Absolutely no prior harmonica or musical experience is required, but you will need a decent 10 hole diatonic harmonica and a good desire to learn. While this is a two part workshop held on consecutive Saturdays, you may choose to sign up for only one workshop at a time if you desire. You will receive a discounted price if you sign up for both workshops at the same time. To sign up, please call Music Folk at 314-961-2838. Hope to see ya there – Sandy Weltman

Dates: Saturday October 17th and 24th
time: 1p -2:30p
Cost: $30 per workshop or $50 for both
