Two world class harmonica coaches and players at your disposal for a full day
To date, Adam Gussow and Ronnie Shellist have co-hosted five harmonica workshops. These events are quickly growing in popularity across the U.S. They're headed back to Colorado for their fifth workshop to date. The format is such that not only do you get to hear Ronnie, and Adam teach their own segment, but also co-teach for a portion of the event. There will be plenty of time for Q & A as well! You will have the opportunity to play and receive individual/direct feedback from both Ronnie and Adam, to help get you to the next step in your playing. The workshop is followed by an evening performance.
