You’ll learn more advanced techniques that will elevate your playing, whilst maintaining the improvised blues style.

Student Feedback

2019 Camp Creative Survey

Tutor

Mike  Bradberry

Mike Bradberry

Mike, aka ‘Leatherlips’ has been playing harp for around thirty years, and tutored individually for over twenty. He’s played in numerous electric and acoustic bands over the years and is currently gigging in local Bellingen band The Shufflemen.


Course Requirements

You'll need to have your own harmonica in the keys of 'A' ,‘C’, 'D' and 'F'. Mike suggests it’s worth spending a little extra if you intend to carry on playing. A Hohner Special 20 is a good start, but if you want something more comfortable, he suggests either Seydel or Suzuki.

Please bring a CD along that you would like to emulate.

You will also need a pen and notebook.
