I started taking harmonica from Skip Landt at The Old Town School of Folk Music, then moved on to the Chicago Blues Harmonica classes. I am now in Joe Filisko's CBH level 3 and also Rhythm & Chording.
I am somewhere on the scale between beginner and intermediate.
Music is fun for me. I enjoy the collaboration with other musicians as well as listening to live performances and seeing how all my friends are improving their skills over the months.
Not currently. I grew up taking piano lessons and played the trombone in my high school orchestra.
Playing blues harp and meeting up with other harmonica players has become my secret life that is different from everything else I do! Retired from freelance court reporting, I love gardening with native plants and enjoy all sorts of music.
I was pleased that so many were willing and able to travel out to the suburbs for this event. We'll be back at Tapas next month.
