|"I was fortunate to have attended the first "Harmonica Intensive' back in 2005.It has been one of the best experiences I've had. Howard is an amazing teacher and musician,and Margie and her crew at "Classactsontour" make you feel right at home. It gave me a chance to play and befriend some of the best harp players from around the world! It helped me improve as a harmonica player,but more importantly Howard challenges you to become a better musician,and helps provide the tools for you find your own voice on the harp. My goal here is not a review, but to say to anyone who is uncertain to the value of this opportunity, I assure you, you will cherish the experience." ~Tim Rumfelt |
