Bud Gardner, founder of the popular Sun City Roseville Harmonicoots, is conducting a workshop, "Fun Chromatic Harmonica" on Saturday, April 5, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Sierra College in Rocklin.
"The chromatic harmonica is not only fun to play, but you can create memorable music," says Gardner. "Why? Because the chromatic has a lever or button which allows you to play the sharps and flats that many songs require. It truly is a piano in your pocket."
Created for men and women, beginners and up, this class will cover the chromatic scale, key of C, G, and F scales, three blow/draw techniques, throat vibrato, hand vibrato and many other valuable chromatic basic techniques. Students will need to bring either a 12-hole chromatic (48 notes) or a 16-hole chromatic (64 notes) in the key of C. One option is to purchase the SWAN chromatic prior to the class online from Amazon.com.
Pre-registration is required at the Sierra College Community Education office by calling 916-781-6280 or online at www.sccommed.org. Sign-up cost is $48.
A fee of $20 for materials which include an instruction songbook and CD is due at class.
