Ventura Small-Group Jam Camps
These Harmonica Jam Camp experiences are 3 1/2 days of instructional-jamming intensives held in Jon’s living room, with views looking out over the town, the ocean and islands beyond. I only allow 6 persons per camp. There is much more time for jamming and personal attention to your goals, and problems.

June Lake Jam Camps
These Jam Camps are summer gatherings in my lakeside cabin at June Lake, California. Only 4 people are allowed in these June Lake gatherings.. The living room is slightly smaller, and the pontoon boat we float around for jamming only fits 4 campers (plus driver.) This area is one of the most beautiful places you will ever visit, with beautiful lakes, towering peaks, wildlife, one hour from Yosemite, 20 minutes from Mammoth Lakes.

Bring Your Questions, Your Problems, Your Hopes & Hidden Talents
Along with the fundamentals of tone and vibrato, we will improvise to different grooves and chord progressions, and 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. Might 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 tips that helped my uncoordinated fingers do a better job.
