March 14, 2022 @ 10:30 am - March 17, 2022 @ 8:30 pm$495
3.5 Days in Ventura, California
6 Dedicated Harp Students
Hey Harp Players! have recreated Blues Harmonica Jam Camps so they last an evening and three days, are conducted in my living room and deck at my house overlooking the town of Ventura, with an amazing view of the ocean and the Channel Islands beyond. Only six people will attend. Everyone will get MUCH more attention and jamming time. I also strongly suggest that you prepare with a SKYPE lesson or two.
Ventura is small seaside town about 50 miles north of Los Angeles. LAX and Santa Barbara are the nearest airports with Santa Barbara greatty preferred. The best hotel for affordable comfort is The Clocktower Inn, very near downtown.
- Monday Evening Meet and Greet 7 pm
- Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday — we have three 90 minute classes.
Each day: 10am to 11:30 — 2 pm to 3:30 — 7 pm to 8:30 pm
About the curriculum:
Bring Your Questions, Your Problems, Your Hopes & Hidden Talents! Along with the fundamentals of tone and vibrato, we will will improvise to different grooves and chord progressions. We will create an environment in which you will jam and jam. Mistakes don’t mean a damn thing except an opportunity for next time, and specific ideas on improving. I am also going to get you playing 3rd position—and 12th. What the hell, for the same amount of money, I’ll throw in 4th and 5th positions too.
I miight mention a thing or two about songwriting. If you have a poem, or lyrics, or a song— bring them! We will sing. I have singing tips that cut to the chase. Singing REALLY helps your harp playing. And if you play guitar, bring that if you’d like. I have tips that helped my uncoordinated fingers do a better job. The seminar is mostly acoustic, but there will be a session on miking and playing into an amp. If you have a mike you’d like to try, this will be an opportunity.
