Classes will be held in the Philadelphia Folksong Society (PFS) building at 7113 Emlen Street, Philadelphia PA 19119 (near Lincoln Drive, in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia).

(You could take both classes if you'd like.)
Note: If you are interested in these harmonica classes, please sign up as soon as possible (immediately). Because class size is limited to 12 students, the class may fill up soon.
Here are some brief course descriptions:
"Rock 'n' Roll Harmonica 1"
Some of the greatest recordings of Rock 'n' Roll and Pop music are distinguished by the harmonica playing heard on them. We'll work on the harmonica parts of recordings by the Beatles ("Love Me Do"), the Rolling Stones ("Sweet Virginia"), Neil Young, Billy Joel ("Piano Man"), Bruce Springsteen, and others. We will focus on techniques like bending, and examine in detail some intro riffs, fills and solos. Lots of individual attention! Bring a 10-hole diatonic key of C major harmonica such as the Hohner Special 20, Hohner Marine Band (Model 1896), or equivalent to the first class. Required text may be purchased for $8.00 from the instructor the first night. ( Optional: bring a recording device.)
"Blues Harmonica 2":
Let's continue our study of Blues harmonica. The harmonica's unique sound is integral to the distinctiveness of many great blues bands. Learn some techniques and styles of background and lead playing. We will continue to work on songs by Slim Harpo ("Something Inside Me," "Raining In My Heart") , Little Walter ("Last Night," "Hoochie Coochie Man"), Sonny Terry ("Bring It On Home To Me"), etc. Bring a 10-hole diatonic key of C-major harmonica such as the Hohner Special 20, Hohner Marine Band Model 1896, or equivalent, to first class. Required text may be purchased for $8.00 from the instructor the first night (you may already have purchased this text for Blues Harmonica 1). (Optional: bring a recording device.) ________________________________________________________________________________
*Please note that "Rock 'n' Roll Harmonica 1" and "Blues Harmonica 2" are not classes for Beginners. (Beginners should take "Harmonica For Beginners" which will be offered in September 2015. "Harmonica For Beginners" is a "Level 1" class.)
"Rock 'n' Roll Harmonica 1" is a "Level 2" class and "Blues Harmonica 2" is a "Level 3" class.
"Rock 'n' Roll Harmonica 1" is for people who have taken a Beginner class (or other harmonica class) with me, or who have acquired the necessary skills on and knowledge of the harmonica in some other way.
"Blues Harmonica 2" is for people who have taken "Blues Harmonica 1" or another "Level 2" harmonica class with me, or who have acquired the necessary skills on and knowledge of the harmonica in some other way.
I would like to talk with anyone who is considering taking one of these classes, but who has not taken a class with me, to make sure that they are indeed ready for the class. If you took my "Harmonica For Beginners," you are ready to continue with "Rock 'n' Roll Harmonica 1."
I've been teaching harmonica classes since 1975: in the Boston MA area; the Syracuse NY area;
in New York City; and finally in the Philadelphia PA area. (I've moved several times over the years). And I have taught private harmonica lessons since the early 1970's. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music from Syracuse University.
