Learn to Play the Harmonica At Owens’ Workforce and Community Services, Oct. 8

Maybe you never instrumentally accompanied your friends singing around the campfire or grooved to the blues on the bayou. Such examples should not stop you from venturing to try a new instrument for the first time as Owens Community College offers a Harmonica Workshop on Saturday, October 8.

The Harmonica Workshop will occur from 12:30-2:30 p.m. at the College’s Workforce and Community Services, located on Tracy Road in Northwood. Participants of all ages and experience levels are encouraged to enroll in the course.

“The Harmonica Workshop is geared for people who have perhaps never picked up an instrument before,” said Joe Zsigray, Owens instructor for the Harmonica Workshop. “The harmonica is perfect for this because we can accomplish quite a bit in a short span of time. Everyone will leave with the ability to play 10 songs, which is very exciting for participants.”

Zsigray added, “We’re going to have a lot of fun and our goal is to open an avenue for people to express themselves musically, even after they leave the class.”

Attendees will learn how to read music, translate songs into harmonica tablature and play the instrument itself. In addition to hands on practice and instruction, each participant will receive a harmonica to take home and links to websites so they can continue to explore the instrument on their own.

Owens’ Workforce and Community Services is dedicated to providing customer-driven workforce development and job training. The learning-centered approach focuses on developing and enhancing professional skills to meet the needs of the community, customizing training in the areas of computer applications, allied health education, apprenticeship-related training and skilled trades.

The registration fee for the workshop is only $25. For more information, or to register for the class, call (567) 661-7357 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 7357.
