“Come and get some inside Intel on one of the most elusive instruments known to man. The Harmonica is one of the most difficult instruments to learn, and just as difficult to teach.
That being said I have knowledge, experience and ways to help and plan to do so. I love helping people find their way with this wickedly cool instrument.
I teach it like a language because it truly is a language.
I have been awarded the #1 blues harmonica player in Canada for the past three years and I am nominated again now in 2018 at the Maple Blues Awards.
I encourage all players from beginner to advanced to attend this workshop. Bring an A harp so we can all do some sucking and blowing.” -Harpdog Brown
