Dear harmonica lover,
at the time of writing we have already received nearly 80 registrations for the Harmonica Masters Workshops 2016. In some classes, only a limited number of places are still available.
As a valued previous visitor we would be particularly sorry to disappoint you and therefore recommend prompt registration if you wish to participate in this year's workshops,
with best regards

Many harmonica players have mastered the basics but still struggle to bring the different aspects into focus in order to play with assurance and precision. In 2016, Steve's class will be aimed at intermediate harmonica players who want to tighten up their technique, broaden their repertoire and boost self confidence. As well as technical studies, we will be looking at melodic playing as one of the essential tools in learning to support a song and will work through some exciting and enjoyable tunes including a number of jugband classics.
