name is Alex Hastings and I was born and raised in Albuquerque NM. I
play blues and folk harmonica, and play for the ENMU jazz combo on
occasion. Music comes from your heart, therefore, inspiration and
soulful expression is something that cannot be taught by me or anyone;
that is for you to find in yourself. I can, however, teach you how to
use the harmonica to express the inspiration that you discover within
yourself. With practice and some help, I promise you can learn this
instrument backwards and forwards. I can teach players from square one
and I can help more advanced players with the fine details and
professional technique of the harmonica. In my lessons we will work on a
very individual level based on your personal goals, whether you want to
back up your buddy the guitarist, or soulfully bust out in a solo. In
the end it is about the music. I want to teach you to play what you want
to play. I say again, I can't teach inspiration, but I can teach you how
to use the harmonica to its fullest extent.
I charge $30 for a one hour lesson (if we get in a good
groove I may be willing to take it a hair longer) or you can take a 4
lesson series for $100.
I am available all summer and during the second half of
December/first half of January.
