[Harp-L] Bonfiglio Harmonica Seminar in Palo Alto

This year will be my 5th Chromatic Seminar for Diatonic Players (and also for chromatic players and teachers who wish to advance their chromatic knowledge and pedagogy) held from Friday Feb 15th in the evening 6-10, to Monday Feb 18 morning from 10-12 over the holiday weekend. Sat and Sunday will be 10-12 and 2-4 with night time get togethers to play, jam, tune and repair harmonicas. The place is the Palo Alto Elks Lodge. There are several better motels with in walking distance of where we will hold the seminar.

I have introduced players like Randy Singer, Rob Paparozzi, Clint Hoover, Chris DePino, Clint Hoover and Sugar Blue to chromatic and given lessons to Mike Turk and William Galison who already could play chromatic.

The seminar will be $499 unless a club can bring in 5 members and the club members will be $399 each. I will include a copy of my two etudes "Scales and Arpeggios" and "Bona Rhythm Etudes" for each player which usually cost $200. I will also get you copies of my Bach for Harmonica when it's done.

This seminar is for all levels of players; people with a higher level of expertise on chromatic will learn teaching pedagogy and reinforce the fundamentals of chromatic play. We will cover everything from tone, phrasing, corner switch, dynamics, speed, rhythm, reading and practice habits, etc. I teach you the tools to play the instrument and you take those tools into any kind of music you wish from jazz to classical to blues to folk to blue grass, etc.

The seminar is suitable for anyone wanting to gain more knowledge about the chromatic. It should be fun to get several players together for intense sessions. It moves very fast and will give you stuff to practice and how to practice for the next ten years which is what all musicians do.

Please email me if you wish to come.

The next step will be a refundable deposit of $100 to me, just to avoid last minute pullouts. I will have allow you to pull out up to one week before the seminar without losing the deposit.

Harmonically yours,
