Harmonica Masters Workshops
The Harmonica Masters Workshops in Trossingen, Germany were founded in 2003 by Steve Baker in cooperation with the town of Trossingen and the Hohner Musical Instrument company and he has been musical director ever since. They are now organised by Michaela Kitzke from the Hohner Conservatory. The 14th edition of the no. 1 educational event for blues harmonica in Europe opens its doors again at the end of October 2020 on the new campus in the historical heart of Trossingen, the fully renovated site of the former Hohner production facilities. As well as four days of classes with world class instructors, the Harmonica Masters Workshops also offer a full evening program of concerts and open sessions. All classes and performances take place on site within easy walking distance of each other. The choice of instructors has always been a mainstay of the concept. Every year, Steve has brought together some of the world's leading harmonica educators to join him in teaching the Master Workshops at this event.
Trossingen is located in beautiful hill country on the edge of the Black Forest, not far from the A81 motorway. The town has a railway station (Trossingen Stadt) and is also within easy reach of the international airports in Stuttgart and Zurich (Switzerland). Accommodation is available nearby in categories ranging from budget to 3 star hotel and everything is accessible on foot. There are also parking facilities for mobile homes on the outskirts of town.
We look forward to welcoming you to Trossingen!
