My eleven year old son would like to learn to play the harmonica. Does anyone know of a teacher for harmonica? I have seen the one ref. on the site from 02. Thanks! anne

You can start with a ''teach-yourself'' book. I found a large selection at the music store in downtown Berkeley, on Shattuck (the name escapes me). Their selection seems to vary a lot, so you might want to call first to see if they have a bunch in stock.. My son easily picked up the basics with the book, though he is by no means ''performance-ready''. R.K.

When we heard the Mark Hummel harmonica blow-out at Yoshi's in Oakland (an excellent show!) one of the performers mentioned he gave harmonica lessons. I don't remember his name, but he was local. You might be able to trace him from the two connections. Good luck. A chromatic player
