Jason, from The Wren & The Whistler, is hosting two harmonica workshops on Sunday, November 13. You’ll leave with a tune to play for your relatives on Thanksgiving. Here’s a preview.
It’s small enough to fit in your pocket, but the harmonica is a world of sound and song. In this workshop, students delve into three musical worlds: playing by ear, reading musical notation and creating compositions through visual signals and written notation. Along with way students learn about the joys of making their own music and the history of great composers and musicians as diverse as Ludwig van Beethoven and blues harmonica legend Sonny Terry.
Children ages 7 to 11. No experience on any instrument necessary. Please come to class with any harmonica in the key of C. Harmonicas are available at the Different Strummer Music Store at the Old Town School of Folk Music.
