Harmonica phenomenon Steve Lockwood has joined forces with The Apex to put on a workshop for harmonica players of all abilities including complete beginners.The workshop is suitable for all levels of player including complete beginners and will help any harmonica player to improve their blues and pop playing and get the best out of this deceptively humble instrument.
Steve isn't just a musician with a world wide reputation, who has played with acts from Larry Adler, Chris Difford (Squeeze) and Screaming Lord Sutch to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and recorded over 80 albums. He's also got a degree in harmonica playing from Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge and is a fully qualified teacher and lecturer with a PGCE.
Steve's workshop is a rare opportunity for beginners, improvers and more competent players to gain instruction. Workshop participants will play new blues rhythms, cool country wails, pitch bend all the way down and jam along with well-known solos. Steve will introduce pop/rock, folk and blues material and cover basic and intermediate techniques for the harmonica. Every workshop is different with new material and no need to read music notation for those who can’t read.
