Workshop on Irish music on the harmonica & solo gig

When it comes to Irish music Joel Anderson is one of the best diatonic harmonic players around. If you are interested in learning Irish music on the harmonica, now you have the golden opportunity to take part of his workshop at the harmonica school berlin.

Joel will teach a basic single note melody, and then go through different techniques that will make your harmonica sound like a one man band.

 

To participate you need to have some experience from playing the harmonica, being able to play single notes is important. Joel will not focus on bending/overbending, so that is not required. Participants should bring a G harmonica with them.
