Artichoke Community Music class led by Steve Cheseborough, $100 for five classes.
Blues harp in the park--this is our first in-person class offering. Steve will be teaching outside. and will provide location to registrants.
The blues! Plain and simple. Deep and wonderful. The United States' great gift to the world. Register for either blues guitar or harmonica or both. Or have a friend sign up for the other one and form a duo. We will meet in person, outdoors at Laurelhurst Park or another suitable location. (If it rains we'll find shelter or reschedule.) Open to any level, as long as you love the blues and are willing to practice daily.
Playing the harmonica really does strengthen your abs and improve your breathing. Probably the only instrument you play by inhaling, it is magical and mystical. Also, it’s one of the most affordable, portable and intimate of instruments, a friend to carry wherever you go. And it is a key element of America’s fabulous musical tradition, the blues. But it ain’t easy! All levels welcome, including beginners, as long as you are willing (and happy) to practice daily.

(Weather and rules permitting, we might get in an outdoor, safely distanced real-life meeting too.)
